Domestic Violence

Tamara Putname is an experienced criminal lawyer who handles domestic assault cases with the tenacity and know-how to properly represent you. Most courts in this area have special funding for the prosecution of domestic violence crimes and specially trained domestic assault prosecutors to pursue these charges. Often their success in prosecuting these crimes is what allows them to keep that special funding and their jobs. These cases are extremely sensitive and complicated in nature. It is a sad reality that these cases are often based on exaggerated testimony or complete fabrications on the part of the complaining witness in order to exact revenge or punishment on the accused party. Tamara Putnam will navigate with precision and skill the criminal justice system to expose the agendas of witnesses to allow a just verdict or result for you.

In addition to the criminal penalties, a domestic assault conviction can have far-reaching consequences. It can cause you to lose your child custody or visitation rights. You may lose your right to legally own a gun. You can be kicked out of your own home. A conviction can limit your career options or potentially lead to the loss of your job. A domestic violence case can be either a misdemeanor or a felony. Both can have substantial consequences.
