We all know that there are two sides to every story. Unfortunately, when the police get involved in a dispute between family members, spouses, or even friends, they don't always have all of the facts. A quick decision must be made in order to keep everyone involved in the matter safe. But sometimes, the person taken to jail is not the wrongdoer.

Choosing an attorney to fight these charges is a very important decision and should not be taken lightly. Please keep in mind that a charge of domestic assault or an order of protection will show up if your record is requested by any current or prospective employers.While you may think that it was "no big deal", it implies that you could be a dangerous person and business owners often shy away from hiring someone they feel might have "anger" issues. If it's possible to have your case dismissed, or maybe it already has been, it's very important to then have it expunged. Trying to represent yourself is not a good idea, and could affect you for the rest of your life because the charge of domestic assault could follow you. You deserve an attorney that has extensive experience in fighting these types of charges, an attorney who will fight aggressively for your future. Trudy Bloodworth is that attorney.
