Colorado Springs Defense on Charges of Assault, Harassment, and Menacing
If police are called as a result of a dispute with your spouse or significant other, you may find yourself facing criminal charges such as assault or harassment. After investigating the call, if the police believe there is probable cause that a criminal offense has occurred, either you or your spouse or significant other may face arrest and be required to spend the night in jail before a bond is set by the court.
Frequently, domestic violence cases are handled on a “fast track” system. You may have your case set for trial within 60 days of your first appearance in court. Because of this, it is important that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible.
At the Liberty Law Center we take the time to listen and understand your side of the story. We know there is often more to a domestic violence charge than meets the eye. Our criminal defense attorneys have been protecting the rights of people accused of domestic violence for more than 30 years.

Family situations are some of the most difficult to sort out, especially for the justice system.
- A partner could make false charges of domestic abuse or child abuse during a divorce to get the upper hand in divorce court
- An action that would be reasonable when a relationship is going well might be viewed as harassment, menacing, or stalking when a relationship is on the rocks
- A simple argument gets heated
You may face court orders that restrict your access to your house and your family. Conviction of domestic violence charges may prevent you from possessing a firearm and, depending on your occupation, may cause you to lose your job or career.
At the Liberty Law Center, our defense lawyers thoroughly investigate your case to present all the facts and circumstances to the prosecutor and judge. When the abuse claims are false or a result of self-defense, we work hard to get the case dismissed, in other cases, we look for alternative sentencing options to avoid jail time and help our clients.
Defense Against Restraining Orders
If your partner or former partner got a restraining order against you and you want to challenge it in court, we can help you with that, too.
