Our Atlanta law firm offers a wide variety of domestic violence help for Georgia residents. If you've been charged with domestic violence, there are many ways you can get help. It is important for those facing domestic violence charges to obtain helpful information regarding your case, and good legal representation. Our Odom law office provides a number of helpful resources and information that pertains to domestic violence cases. Not only can our attorneys offer you valuable legal representation, we can assist you in finding help from additional programs all over the state of Georgia.

There are a number of offenses that you can be charged with in relation to domestic violence including:

  • common assault
  • bodily harm
  • sexual assault or rape
  • harassment
  • criminal damage

The penalties for domestic violence crimes can be very severe. It is crucial you contact a criminal defense attorney and seek the legal help you will need to fight your case. Here are some tips to help you:

  • Immediately after you are notified you are being charged with domestic violence, contact a criminal defense lawyer who specializes in domestic violence and abuse
  • Obtain all eye witness accounts, information and documentation that pertains to your alleged crime
  • Meet with a criminal defender and become completely familiar with all matters involved in your situation

If you don't have enough income to hire a private law firm for your defense, the court can appoint a "public defender" to represent you. To be able to qualify for a public defender you'll have to give proof and convince the judge that you do  not have the means to hire an attorney on your own. You will likely need to fill out forms about your job, income, bank accounts, assets and debts. You may also need to give the court copies of your paystubs to prove your income level. The amount of your income level to qualify for a public defender is different for each state and even varies from one court to another.

If you are currently involved in a domestic violence and abuse situation, seek legal help right away. Here are some places to start finding help:

  • Public defender’s office
  • Private law firm that focuses on criminal law
  • Community agencies
  • Legal aid offices
