Kansas City Domestic Violence Attorney

When You’ve Been Accused, Call Our Kansas City Criminal Defense Lawyers

Kansas and Missouri have a mandatory arrest policy for domestic violence cases. If police are called to a domestic disturbance, somebody is likely going to jail. That doesn't necessarily mean that a crime has been committed.

Our ​​​​​criminal defense attorneys in Kansas City, KS represent people charged with domestic violence in the surrounding area, including Lenexa, Shawnee, Lawrence, Olathe, Leawood, Lenexa, Prairie Village, and Overland Park.

If you’ve been accused, do not hesitate to contact Rokusek Stein Law, LLC.

The Experience to Help You

Currently, all domestic battery charges are prosecuted in District Court. As a former prosecutor who has conducted numerous domestic violence trials, Attorney Rokusek knows how these cases are handled by prosecutors.

The state of Kansas takes family violence very seriously. An accusation of domestic violence can make you subject to court orders such as:

  • A Protection from Stalking Order (PFSO)
  • A Protection from Abuse Order (PFAO)
  • A No Contact Order (NCO)

You could be barred from visiting or living with your own family members. You could also be barred from owning guns. To understand the potential consequences of a domestic violence charge, consult an experienced defense attorney as soon as possible. You should never attempt to contact the alleged victim yourself or you could face additional charges.

Defending Your Rights After an Arrest

If there is a defense in your domestic violence case, we can find it. For example, if the domestic battery was a case of mutual combat, we could argue that you were acting in self-defense. Photographs of you taken after the incident could be used as evidence.

It is not unusual for domestic violence charges to be dismissed. Keeping a domestic violence conviction off your record is important to your career and your future, as few employers want to hire someone with a conviction for spousal assault.

Your defense is too important to be left to an inexperienced lawyer. Call Rokusek Stein Law, LLC at 913.583.0465 for a free consultation if you are subject to a restraining order or have been charged with domestic violence in the Kansas City area.

Domestic Violence Tips

Protect Your Rights. Call Our Kansas City Criminal Defense Lawyers.

Carefully consider the following tips to protect your rights and your case:

  • Call an attorney immediately. At Rokusek Stein Law, LLC, we know the importance of entering a case quickly to gather the information and evidence while it is still fresh.
  • Take pictures. Bruises fade, scratches heal, homes are cleaned and organized. Take pictures of the evidence before it is gone, removed, or hidden. Make sure your pictures can be enlarged for evidentiary purposes.
  • Do not make incriminating statements. Statements to law enforcement or family or friends could end up in court as witnesses. Remember that text messages, emails, and voicemail can be saved. Be smart - do not discuss issues with anyone other than your attorney.
  • Text messages are quickly deleted by the phone company. Take pictures of the text messages sent between the parties. Do not assume that an attorney will be able to subpoena those messages as phone companies regularly "dump" the messages after two weeks.
  • Do not violate a "no contact" order. Violating a no contact order can impact the options available on your case. Talk to your attorney about petitioning the court to modify the order, but do not violate a direct court order.
