Craig Atkinson is experienced in representing those who have been charged with any form of domestic violence. These charges may include domestic assault, domestic battery, domestic assault in the presence of a child, or domestic battery in the presence of a child.
Whatever the specific charge is, Atkinson helps his clients by first working with the prosecuting attorney to resolve your case. Ideally you want it to be dismissed, of course. Depending on the circumstances, though, you may want to agree to a settlement that would reduce penalties and charges.
Atkinson also assists his clients by carefully reviewing all the evidence that the state is planning to use. Often Atkinson makes motions to rule that evidence cannot be admitted in court. The state is then unable to use the evidence if the state rules in his and his clients’ favor.
Effective Domestic Violence Attorney
You need an attorney who is not just knowledgeable and helpful, of course, but effective. Often decisions in domestic violence cases hinge on what might seem to be minor details. You need a lawyer who will be painstaking in his or her approach. Green Wave wrote on Google that Craig’s “professional attention to detail was amazing and he made sure that we were kept abreast of everything.”
Another characteristic you want in an attorney is confidence that she or he can line up your case and win. You want a lawyer who will come in and help you move forward if you’ve had trouble with another attorney. After being told by a different lawyer that his odds of winning were poor, Alondra Rodriguez spoke with Craig. She said on Google that “he gave me hope and we took my case to trial and got a victory.”
