Family, Criminal & Children's Court Attorneys Since 1991

Protecting You From Domestic Violence Accusations

Domestic violence defense cases are commonly intense and emotional situations that can put your rights, freedom and relationships on the line. Even an accusation can be enough to impact your connection with your friends, family and career. With so much at stake in these cases, it is essential that you get the representation you need to defend yourself against these charges.

At Thelen & Associates, LLC, we have been defending clients against their criminal charges since 1991, and we are committed to defending the best interests of everyone who comes into our offices in Mukwonago and Waukesha. We understand how delicate domestic violence cases can be, and we are here to help you through your claim, no matter how challenging it may seem.

Forms Of Domestic Violence

It is possible for an accuser to file domestic violence charges against you without ever alleging that you physically harmed them. “Domestic assault” is an umbrella term that covers a wide variety of abusive behaviors as a part of systematic power or control, including:

  • Willful intimidation
  • Physical assault
  • Battery
  • Sexual assault
  • Verbal abuse

We take the time to review the unique details in our clients’ cases and look for any viable opportunity to defend them, including pursuing defenses such as defending one’s property, proving false allegations, acting in self-defense and defending another person. While one of the best outcomes in these cases is the dismissal or beating of the charges in court, we also help our clients look for ways to minimize the charges they are facing, often through negotiations for plea deals.

No matter what course of action is necessary to help you against your domestic violence charges, you can have peace of mind knowing that we will be by your side through every step of your defense case.
