Physical abuse of a spouse, domestic partner, family member, or anyone you share a home with is a criminal act. If you or someone you know was arrested for domestic violence, a domestic violence charge which leads prosecution is inevitable. Schurman Law can help you navigate through the complex and confusing Washington State court system, which is exceptionally tough on domestic violence.
Eric will defend your constitutional rights and intervene in the prosecution process to minimize or eliminate additional jail time and court fees, can reduce your bail amount, and can work with the system to reduce or dismiss the charge, which can have long-lasting and expensive consequences throughout your life.
At our firm, we represent both men and women in a variety of cases. If you are being accused of domestic violence, immediately stop contact with your accuser. The court system puts abuse and no-contact orders into place to provide safety for all parties involved in the domestic violence protection order and violations of these orders will only prolong and support the domestic abuse and violence accusations.
