Domestic violence charges do not discriminate

For many, domestic violence conjures an image of a man assaulting his wife. This is a common and dangerous misconception. Domestic violence affects all people regardless of gender or sexual orientation. For example, two WNBA players will each be suspended seven games on charges of domestic violence. Brittney Griner, and Glory Johnson were reported to have committed domestic violence against each other on April 22nd in their new home. Likewise, in Colorado, the law does not distinguish between same sex or mixed sex couples; simply having an intimate relationship with the other party who is the victim to your crime may result in DV charges.

The Law Offices of Steven J. Pisani have extensive experience with domestic violence. If you or a loved one have been accused of domestic violence don’t hesitate to contact attorney Steven Pisani.
