Domestic Violence Attorneys in Alexandria
Defending the Falsely Accused in Virginia, Maryland, & Washington D.C.
Domestic violence is assaultive behavior toward a person’s family or members of their household (e.g. partners, parents, children, stepfamily, etc.). Domestic violence does not include actions against friends, neighbors, or colleagues, even if they have close relationships.
This area of law is designed to keep families safe from abuse, but not every allegation is true. If you are accused of domestic violence, penalties can be severe. You may lose your ability to obtain a job, possess a firearm, or see your family members—including your children. At Tesfaye Law, we can work tirelessly to protect your rights during this uncertain time, but you will need to get into contact with us immediately.

Penalties for Domestic Violence
Domestic violence involves a series of criminal acts specifically committed against a family or household member.
These criminal acts may include:
- Sexual harassment
- Sexual assault
- Reckless endangerment
- Threats of violence
Because they’re committed against a family or household member, the penalties are more severe than they would be in other contexts. Penalties will also revolve around the victim’s safety, meaning the judge may adjust custody arrangements or establish no-contact orders. If convicted, you may lose visitation rights or even the ability to contact your family. Severe convictions may result in substantial prison time, which could cause you to lose your job.
Although these laws provide essential protective services for survivors, the falsely accused may experience life-altering consequences they don’t deserve. To avoid a conviction, we urge you to retain qualified counsel as soon as possible.
