DuPage County Domestic Violence Attorneys

Illinois Criminal Defense Lawyers

In the heat of an argument, when tempers flare, one spouse may decide to punish the other by calling the police. The one calling the police, simply by virtue of placing the call, is usually determined to be the victim and the other party is viewed as the abuser. After a spouse or family member calls the police on a domestic violence issue, emotions frequently die down, and he or she may decide not to press charges.

However, in many instances, even though family matters resolve, the District Attorney's Office will still move forward with indictment and prosecution. Even if you believe the threat of criminal charges has subsided, it is vital to consult a criminal defense lawyer as soon as police are involved in any way. Immediate legal action can sometimes prevent the prosecution from beginning legal proceedings.

The attorneys at Mevorah & Giglio Law Offices have decades of experience handling cases that involve domestic violence. Since 1979, our lawyers have helped numerous clients in DuPage, Cook, Kane, McHenry, and Will Counties deal with domestic violence accusations and have taken effective legal action on their behalf. Traditionally, domestic violence resolved by family members; however, the media focus, and another emphasis placed on domestic violence has changed the legal climate surrounding domestic violence cases. Laws have been stiffened and reporting requirements have become more sophisticated all making domestic violence predominantly a legal rather than domestic matter.

Defining Domestic Violence

  • Family members related by blood or marriage;
  • Current or former spouses;
  • Current or former boyfriends or girlfriends;
  • Parents of the victims' children; and
  • Current or former roommates.

Also based on their severity and frequency, the following actions define forms of domestic violence:

  • Physical Violence: Beating, shoving, biting, kicking, restraint, throwing physical objects, damaging property, and harming pets.
  • Sexual Abuse: Forced or unwanted sexual contact, rape, and incest.
  • Emotional Abuse: Threats, intimidation, humiliation, intentional embarrassment, isolation from family or other people, heavy control, and stalking.
  • Economic Abuse: Withholding money, deliberate misuse or waste of common finances, and prevention of employment or completion of training or education.
