John Hassett represents clients located in Maryland who have been accused of committing domestic battery. This crime occurs when a person intentionally touches or strikes another person against the will of the other person or intentionally causes bodily harm to another person.
When two people are getting divorced or separated, one of the partners will sometimes falsely accuse the other partner of domestic battery or abuse in order to gain an advantage in the divorce case. In other cases, one of the partners will sometimes attempt to get a restraining order against the other partner in order to gain an advantage in the divorce case.
If you are facing a false accusation, you need a lawyer who will thoroughly investigate your case and vigorously defend you in court.
