Domestic Violence Case

Rhonda Diane Ellifritz

Case Conclusion Date:August 28, 2003

Practice Area:Family

Outcome:In the family law case, a mutual "peaceful contact" restraining order was stipulated, and my client received joint 50/50 custody. The criminal charges were immediately dropped, and my client was not required to appear at any further criminal proceedings.

Description:I had a client facing accusations of domestic violence both in family law and criminal court. The "victim" had numerous witnesses, I had only my client present at the hearing. I successfully demonstrated that many of her statements made to police and others were completely false, which destroyed her credibility.
