You can always speak with Mr. Clayman about your case completely free of charge. He will give you whatever time you need to vent and explain your case. You will never be rushed. Domestic violence occurs between intimate partners, household members and even between roommates. Domestic violence charges stem from battery, assault, harassment and stalking to name a few. These are criminal charges that often find themselves involved in quasi-criminal proceedings dealing with injunctions against violence, commonly referred to as protection orders. When an individual is charged with a domestic offense, the accused must deal with bonds, no contact orders being issued and in some cases pre-trial release conditions that in most circumstances require the implementation of a GPS monitor. Mr. Clayman will work with the alleged victims to see if they are willing to cooperate with the State in their prosecution of your case, file motions to have bonds reduces and relax pre-trial release conditions and of course vacate no contact orders that are usually ordered at the magistrate level upon entry into the system. (Never contact the victim as you may walk directly into a tampering with a victim/witness charged that will always be a felony. And NEVER discuss the facts of your case over the phone while incarcerated. Those calls are recorded, often times monitored by the prosecuting authority, and will most certainly be used against you at future proceedings. The only calls that are privileged, are those made to your attorney)!

Must be committed against a family or household member. This includes spouses, former spouses, persons related by blood or marriage, persons who presently reside together as if a family or who have resided together in the past as if a family, and persons who are parents of a child in common regardless of whether they have been married. (With the exception of persons who have a child in common, the family or household members must be currently residing or have in the past resided together in the same single dwelling unit).
