Domestic Violence Attorney for Silverdale

A domestic violence charge has a major, negative impact on your life. You are told:

  • You must leave your own home.
  • A no-contact order bars you from returning until you have been tried.
  • You must turn over any firearms you own.
  • When you interact with the community you are shunned, or worse.
