Dynamic Counsel for Domestic Violence Issues in San Antonio
Resolving accusations of violence and abuse for all parties
In 30 years of practice, I’ve learned that domestic violence is never to be tolerated — but often police remove the alleged offender from a home or apartment following a non-physical argument. If you’ve been charged with domestic violence, the criminal attorney at the Law Office of Bill Baskette can assist you with the most serious cases and charges of domestic violence. I work directly with the accuser and the accused to get the charges dismissed and protect your reputation. As a former judge and former prosecutor, I know firsthand that the circumstances surrounding a domestic dispute can be ignored by crusading prosecutors or overworked judges. If you’re facing domestic violence charges, hire an experienced domestic violence lawyer to examine the case and defend your interests. As always, I handle domestic assault and abuse cases with the professional, personal attention that my clients have come to expect.
Understanding the alternatives to conviction and jail time
I’ve learned in my practice that often, the parties in a domestic disturbance want to reconcile and get back together, but certain legal actions — such as one party obtaining a protective order or restraining order — keep that from occurring. When possible, I use my knowledge as a San Antonio domestic violence lawyer to find counseling, therapy and anger management sessions to avoid sentencing and convictions. In these cases, I work closely with the court, negotiating reduced charges and dismissal of domestic abuse allegations.
Sometimes, however, it’s necessary to go to court. I work with you and the available evidence to establish the facts and learn why the police were contacted in the first place. If you did commit the alleged domestic violence, I work with you to provide the best defense and help you prevent it in the future. If they are wrongful accusations of domestic violence, we determine why the police were called and the restraining order entered. As your criminal attorney, I review police reports, discuss the matter with the opposing party or their lawyer and do my best to give the court a different picture from the police accusations.
