Domestic Violence & PFA Criminal Contempt

Resolving Pennsylvania Domestic Assault Charges

If you're facing a charge of domestic assault or violation of a protection from abuse order, the advice of a law firm with extensive trial experience in both family law and criminal defense can help you meet the allegations with the full range of your interests in mind. Contact Scaringi Law, for a consultation about your domestic violence defense options.

Our lawyers advise people facing any felony or misdemeanor charge related to domestic violence:

  • Domestic assault
  • Family assault
  • Violation of an order for protection from abuse
  • Violation of a protection order through stalking, harassment or prohibited contact

While a first-offense domestic assault that does not result in injury will typically be charged as a misdemeanor, the consequences of a conviction can be more serious than you'd think. You'll lose your gun rights during any period that a protection order remains in effect, and you can face occupational licensing problems in certain professions. The risk of a contempt citation for even unintentional violations of a protection order can also create a serious problem for the defendant.

Call (717) 775-7195 for Advice About Domestic Violence Defense

Working together, the family law and criminal defense attorneys at our law firm can develop and present the best defense available under the circumstances of your case. It often turns out that the allegations made in support of a protection order are fabricated or exaggerated to develop leverage in a divorce or custody dispute. Even where the evidence of domestic violence is strong, our experience with constructive solutions to difficult family dynamics can represent a significant advantage for you.

For additional information about our approach to client service in domestic violence cases, contact Scaringi Law, in Harrisburg, or Newport, or Carlisle.
