Domestic Violence Attorneys in Grand Rapids & Kalamazoo

Domestic violence charges sometimes arise out of situations that unexpectedly spiral out of control — such as a passionate argument between a husband and wife, or a misunderstanding with a boyfriend or girlfriend. Whatever the circumstances, these criminal charges are always serious and never go away or get resolved by themselves.

If you have been accused of domestic violence, you have a lot to lose — including the respect of your family and friends, your job or prospects for future employment, and even your freedom. You need a criminal defense lawyer, someone who is ready to stand by you and knows how to protect your rights.

At Willis Law, many of our clients are professionals, military members and students who have found themselves in a bad situation. Our goal is to help our clients put this difficult situation behind them and rebuild their lives.

Have You Been Accused of Domestic Assault?

Under Michigan law, domestic violence is abusive behavior — physical, sexual, emotional, psychological and economic — used by one person to dominate or control another. Domestic relationships are those between spouses and former spouses, people in dating relationships, couples with children in common, and residents and former residents of the same household.

Examples of abusive behavior include but are not limited to:

  • Pushing
  • Shoving
  • Slapping
  • Forced sex
  • Stalking
  • Denying access to bank accounts and credit cards
  • Misuse of a telephone
  • Interrupting or preventing a 911 call

Domestic violence charges are aggressively prosecuted in Michigan, even when the alleged victims withdraw their complaints. Prosecutors often stack charges in these cases, turning what is initially a misdemeanor into a felony or multiple charges.
