It is not unusual for a court to set bail when there is an allegation of domestic violence. District courts often set follow-up court dates on a tighter time schedule than other types of offenses. And an attorney needs to be flexible enough to handle those kinds of scheduling demands. At the Hester Law Group the attorneys employ a team approach to virtually all of their cases, meaning we offer greater opportunity to work the demands a court might put on our schedules.
Domestic violence does not stand alone as a charged offense. It is an additional element prosecution charges when there is a relationship between two people and a charge, such as assault, that is alleged between the parties to the relationship. Having a conviction for an offense that is characterized as domestic violence carries additional concerns. All Hester Law Group attorneys have worked with seemingly countless domestic violence allegations and are able to work through the related issues with their clients.
