Types of Domestic Violence

Violence, threats, and harassment can be very difficult to deal with, regardless of whether you are an adult or a child. If a person is made to fear for his or her safety, they may experience great anxiety, emotional, and mental trauma alongside any physical pain they may suffer. If the violence occurs at home, the consequences for the individual’s personal happiness and livelihood are even more difficult to handle.

Most individuals rely on their family members and loved ones to provide support, guidance, and emotional and financial assistance. Dealing with an abusive family member can be extremely difficult, and in some cases, may require assistance from the authorities. Unfortunately, such cases can be very complicated, and innocent persons may be accused of terrible crimes. If you have been wrongly accused of domestic violence, contact the Milwaukee criminal defense attorneys of Hart Powell, S.C. at (414) 271-9595 today.
