If you have been arrested or charged with domestic violence in Arizona, here are two important actions that you need to take:
1. Contact an attorney right away. The sooner you get in contact with an attorney, the more time the attorney will have to review any evidence the prosecution might have against you. Furthermore, an attorney with experience as a former prosecutor can provide you with insight about the possible consequences associated with your charges, and engage in negotiations to lessen their severity.
2. Do not contact the alleged victim. While it may be tempting to reach out to the alleged victim, this can actually make matters even worse. Trying to resolve the issue on your own by approaching or talking to the alleged victim can result in additional charges and increasingly severe consequences.
