In our blog post last week, we discussed how the Alford plea resulted in a man receiving a probation sentence in a domestic violence case. That story brings up the importance of having top-notch representation when you are facing domestic violence charges in Maryland. These charges can have some serious effects on just about every aspect of your life.
When an accusation of domestic violence is made against you, it is possible that you will be displaced. That is because you might not be able to return to your home if there is a protective order against you. Even if that is only temporary, it can still be a huge burden for you to bear. If you have children, you might even be kept away from them.
