St Louis Domestic Violence Lawyer

Assertively Defending Your Future Against Domestic Violence Charges

When arguments between couples or family members become heated, it can be easy to lose your temper and take things too far. When physical violence occurs, police can be quick to file domestic violence charges against one of the involved parties in an effort to end a violent history or simply offer a cooling down period for each party involved. If you have been charged with domestic violence, you need an experienced lawyer to defend you, as a domestic violence conviction can have a lasting impact on your future.

For more than 30 years, I, Robert A. Ciuffa, Attorney at Law, have provided assertive defense against domestic violence, adult abuse and violations of orders of protection charges to clients throughout the St. Louis, Missouri area. My work has successfully limited or eliminated the penalties incurred by domestic violence convictions for countless clients, allowing them to move forward with their lives.

To discuss your specific domestic violence charges, contact my office online or call 314-219-1906 or toll free 888-745-2635.

Addressing the Unique Nature of Domestic Violence Matters

In today's culture, it can be very easy to make an allegation of domestic violence, but not as easy to defend against one. With the inherent prejudices in the system against those accused of domestic violence, your defense has become focused more on the human dynamics or interactions between your family members than the law itself.

My work is designed to help prove your innocence, or need for anger management or counseling to help you avoid the lasting stigmas and penalties associated with domestic violence convictions. I work to prove your character and carefully examine the details of the situation leading up to your charges for inconsistencies or weaknesses in the prosecutions case against you that can be used to your benefit.

Convictions of domestic violence related crimes can carry stiff punishments, including:

  • Requirements to attend RAVEN or anger management and lasting monitoring against recidivism
  • Enhanced charges for repeat offenses — second charges are often felonies
  • Impacts on your potential employment
  • Hefty fines
  • Potential jail time

Taking immediate action when charged can be a vital strategy for defending yourself — getting me involved as quickly as possible can be a key to your successful defense.
