Criminal Defense: Domestic Assault

The attorneys of Missouri’s Meehan Law Firm represent individuals who have been charged with domestic assault, commonly a misdemeanor or a local ordinance violation, but which can be charged as a felony if serious injury results. Cases of domestic violence are taken very seriously by local and state prosecutors, who typically will not dismiss the case, even if the victim later decides not to press charges.

Instances of domestic violence will show up on background record checks, and can harm employment opportunities or interfere with professional licenses or security clearances. The only way to resolve these cases – and stop prosecutors from breaking up families – is to get a lawyer involved.
