Domestic Violence

Richmond Domestic Violence Lawyers

Honest representation in Newport News, VA to protect your family

Domestic assault and family violence is prosecuted heavily in the state of Virginia. Because an accusation often includes a spouse, relative, or child, even minor disagreements can be taken out of context, leading to an arrest or accusation. This can have a permanent impact on your reputation in the community, as well as affecting any family law, custody, or divorce matters you may be involved in.

After an accusation, it is essential you trust a Richmond domestic violence lawyer from Throop Law. Contact us today for a free consultation.

  • Probation
  • Community service or mandatory anger management classes
