Arrested for Domestic Violence?

Call (425) 287-5199 to Reach a Proven Defense Lawyer

Simply being accused of domestic violence immediately damages your reputation and threatens your future. Most of the time police officers responding to a report of domestic violence MUST make an arrest. Once arrested a person has to stay in jail until seeing a judge, which could be days later. If this accusation, no matter how baseless, turns into a domestic violence conviction, you could be looking at jail time, thousands of dollars in fines, and a future of difficulty finding employment. A domestic violence conviction will also prohibit you from owning or possessing firearms. When you have everything on the line, you can turn to Knauss Law Firm for a zealous, client-recommended criminal defense in King and Snohomish counties.
