According to Arizona law, domestic violence refers to verbal, physical, mental, or other violence committed against a child, spouse, former spouse, or another closely related individual.
Domestic violence takes many forms, including:
If your accuser chooses to rescind their allegations, you can still face domestic violence charges by the State. Even if you’re not sure about your case’s potential, we encourage you to consider your legal options. Having an attorney by your side from the very beginning can help build a compelling case.
Domestic abuse does not always refer to an isolated incident. It can encompass a range of actions and may occur in conjunction with other criminal behaviors with their own classifications. Such crimes may include:
The charges you face along with domestic violence allegations vary depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident or incidents. A domestic violence lawyer in Phoenix, AZ, can help you understand the definitions of domestic violence under Arizona law. Once they understand your options, we can begin crafting your defense.
A domestic violence conviction in Phoenix, AZ, can create significant difficulties in every aspect of your life.
You could face:
You don’t want any disruption to your day-to-day life. Our lawyers serving Phoenix aim to serve you.
When you face domestic violence charges, the prosecution must meet the burden of proof. This means that they must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed domestic violence.
Evidence provided by the State must show that you are currently or were previously involved in a domestic relationship with the alleged victim, and that you committed domestic violence as defined under the law.
A criminal defense lawyer who focuses on Arizona domestic violence cases can examine the case presented by the State to find potential weaknesses. Using this information, your domestic violence lawyer can build a defense based on the particulars of your case.
Defenses we may use to fight domestic violence charges include:
Our legal team can conduct a comprehensive review of your case, including witness statements, police reports, photographs, and documentary evidence. Using our extensive knowledge of appropriate police procedures, criminal defense laws, and legal standards, we can find weaknesses in the prosecution’s case. We then build a defense strategy to target these weaknesses to seek the best possible outcome.

These are just some of the domestic violence cases we’ve previously resolved.

We have years of experience managing cases like yours, and we can do everything possible to promote your future.
A judge and jury may have already convicted you of domestic violence. In that instance, our team could:
You could appeal the domestic violence conviction if:
Our attorneys can review your case and determine whether you have grounds to appeal a conviction.
If you already served your time for a domestic violence conviction, you could request that the court set aside the judgment. According to ARS § 13-905, the court may choose to set aside a judgment of guilt, which releases the convicted person from all penalties and disabilities associated with the conviction, with certain exceptions.
Setting aside a conviction allows you to vote and removes your conviction from certain background checks for housing and employment.
Currently, Arizona law does not allow you to expunge convictions (although this will change in 2023) ——meaning you can’t completely remove an offense from your criminal record. However, it does have a system where you can seal all case records related to your conviction.
This could be possible in your case if:
Sealing your record makes it harder for the State to use the domestic violence matter against you in subsequent criminal proceedings. Your domestic violence attorney in Phoenix can examine your situation and explain whether you can seal your record.
Having answers to some of your most pressing questions allows you to make informed decisions regarding your case. Some of those questions may include:
Domestic violence charges can relate to anyone who lives in your household. That could be a spouse, romantic partner, child, or parent. The alleged domestic violence also doesn’t have to be physical. The other party could allege that you created an unsafe household through verbal threats, manipulation, and other related means.
It’s also worth mentioning that domestic violence isn’t exclusively about male/female power dynamics. Men can domestically abuse other men, and women can also inflict abuse on other women.
Your case’s progression depends on many factors relevant to your situation, including:
You have the right to a fair and speedy trial under the American Constitution. Our team seeks to uphold your legal rights throughout your criminal case.

My experience with hiring Omer as my attorney has been nothing short of great. Communication with Omer, Ashley and Lisa is always easy with quick responses. Based on my case Omer was able to pull off a miracle for me. Working with Gurion Legal took a lot of stress off me. They were able to get me the most favorable outcome for my situation and I’m beyond thankful for that. I know exactly who I’d go back to if needed or who I would definitely recommend to any family or friends in need of a lawyer.
Mr. Gurion did an amazing job representing me. He got the best possible outcome for my case.
Omer is a fantastic attorney. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing attorney.
I endorse the 5 stars they receive – they earn them. They’ve been hardworking and knowledgeable, and I should know, I’ve hired them twice! Dealing with legal matters is really difficult, confusing, and stressful, and they ease that burden when you want to count on and trust somebody.

If you’re reading reviews looking for legal help, call them.
