Chicago Domestic Battery & Violence Lawyer

Experienced Domestic Battery & Violence Defense Lawyer in Chicago and Illinois

If you have been arrested for domestic battery in Chicago, Illinois, it is imperative that you seek expert defense as soon as possible.  Similar to simple battery, domestic battery is a serious misdemeanor referring to incidents when a person knowingly and without legal justification causes bodily harm or makes contact of an insulting or provoking nature with an individual.  However with domestic cases, the victim must be a family or household member.

Domestic cases are very sensitive, serious, and all too often false accusations as a result of divorce and other relationship problems. Untruthful or fabricated calls may occur out of anger, and when police are brought into the matter, there is generally always an arrest made for domestic disturbance calls.

As these cases are complicated and problematic for the accused and their family members, you need expert representation from James Shapiro immediately following a domestic battery arrest. Mr. Shapiro understands the sensitive nature of these cases and is ready to provide the support you need as well as develop a strong defense to protect you and your future.
