Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence can carry wide ranging ramifications, sometimes more serious than the conviction itself.  Domestic violence convictions, even misdemeanors, can affect one’s ability to own a firearm, and can affect parental rights, including visitation of your children.  If you have been arrested on a Domestic Violence charge, contact us at the Robert R. Cooper Law Firm, P.C., an Albuquerque criminal defense firm, immediately!  We have over 35 years of experience with these types of charges.

 

Domestic Violence cases are different in that the “named victim” oftentimes does not have a say in the prosecution of the Defendant.  When dispatched to the scene, officers have the obligation to either arrest an individual or issue a citation if the officer believes there is probable cause, even if the “named victim” does not want to prosecute. Robert R. Cooper is an experienced Albuquerque Criminal Defense Attorney representing those charged with:

 

  • Battery on a Household Member

  • Assault on a Household Member

  • Aggravated Battery on a Household Member

  • Aggravated Assault on a Household Member

  • Stalking

  • Violation of Protection Order
