Some offenses are committed in the heat of the moment and without reflection or due deliberation by otherwise law-abiding people. Frequently such offenses occur within the family due to long simmering disputes or unresolved emotional conflicts. (See, Domestic Violence.) A moment’s loss of control can have significant consequences.
It is important that you quickly obtain the services of a law firm that will thoroughly investigate the facts of the case and the underlying circumstances. Prompt action may result in reducing or eliminating the serious charges that can result from such offenses. A conscientious attorney will also explore methods of resolving personal conflicts through counseling or other measures to reduce the likelihood of further occurrences in the future.
