When someone accused of committing a crime, the serious, immediate, and collateral consequences can be overwhelming. I believe that everyone accused of a crime is entitled to a vigorous and client-centric defense. If you have been accused of a crime and need experienced representation, contact the Law Office of Miguel Palmeiro today, at (301) 363-2191, for a free consultation.
If you are involved in a domestic violence case, you may want to hire an experienced domestic violence (DV) lawyer. A DV attorney can help protect you if you or your family have been the victim of domestic violence. An attorney can file restraining orders and make changes to your child custody agreement in order to protect you and your family. Conversely, if you have been accused of physically or mentally threatening someone close to you (e.g., a family member, boyfriend, girlfriend, or partner), you should contact a lawyer with experience in domestic violence cases. DV lawyers can also defend you against false accusations of domestic violence, which might otherwise put you at a disadvantage in divorce or child custody negotiations.
