You Need Representation In Domestic Violence Cases

If you have been charged with criminal domestic violence (CDV), you need a lawyer to vigorously advocate for your rights. When I began my career as a prosecutor in the 9th Circuit Solicitor's Office in Charleston, I exclusively prosecuted CDV cases for nearly a year. I have handled hundreds of these cases and understand them from the state's perspective as well as from the criminal defense side.

I'm attorney Adam Young, a defense attorney with unique insight into South Carolina criminal domestic violence cases. You can trust in my experience with all aspects of domestic violence cases. When I investigate, I will assess the merits of the state's case against you. I will explain your options and we will discuss whether to negotiate or go to trial.

A Conviction Will Change Your Life

Too many people charged with domestic violence assume that the case will be dropped if the alleged victims do not want to press charges. However, prosecutors can still pursue the case without the victim's cooperation. This is known as victimless prosecution and can be a serious problem for people who do not have a lawyer.

A CDV conviction may include penalties such as jail time and fines. If you are convicted of criminal domestic violence, you will not be allowed to own firearms of any kind.

In addition, a civil order of protection may prevent you from seeing your children and staying in your home. Many aspects of your life will be negatively affected.
