No One Takes Domestic Violence Charges More Seriously Than We Do
Domestic violence is a complicated and emotional issue. Family violence damages thousands of lives. On the other hand, false accusations do occur, often to gain an upper hand in divorce and child custody proceedings, with the potential for terrible consequences for the accused.
At Thomas & Thomas Attorneys At Law, we are deeply committed to protecting victims of domestic violence. We are equally committed to ensuring that no one gets away with using false allegations as a weapon.
Our lawyers have been working in the area of domestic violence law since 1987. We have extensive experience in both family law and criminal defense, and we consider it our duty to provide real, practical solutions for people in need of legal help.
With 30 Years’ Experience, We Know Your Rights And Options
Attorney Bruce A. Thomas is a former prosecutor who has taken numerous cases to trial. He understands that allegations of domestic abuse are often based on limited facts. He will examine the evidence in your case and give you an honest, straightforward assessment of your options.
We defend people in protection from abuse (PFA) hearings and those facing criminal charges, such as:
- Spousal abuse
- Assault and battery
- Child abuse
- Child abduction
We will fight to have the charges reduced or dismissed, or for your case to be resolved through Pennsylvania’s Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program. As an alternative to trial, this is a six to 12-month program available to first-time offenders of domestic violence if no serious injuries resulted from the incident. After completing the program, you will have no conviction on your record.
