In Michigan, few lawyers have the experience, reputation, skill, and persistence to successfully fight for a client charged with domestic violence and do whatever is necessary to achieve the best possible result.
Michigan Domestic Violence Attorney
LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. was retained to represent a client, A.B., on a charge of misdemeanor domestic violence in Oakland County, Michigan. The allegation was that our client choked his sister and pushed her against a wall. A.B. is a citizen of Jordan and a highly respected engineer at a Fortune 500 Company. In the event of a conviction, A.B. would have potentially been deported because, under immigration law, domestic violence is considered to be a crime of “moral turpitude.” On January 16, after two months of litigation, all charges against our client were outright dismissed.
