“James Dixon exposed the truth and I was cleared of all charges”


When I was arrested on false allegations of felony violation of a domestic violence no contact order James Dixon exposed the truth and I was cleared of all charges and the case was dismissed. Jim Dixon has amazing attention to detail and an uncanny ability to expose lies and contradictions through a very methodical process of interviewing. This was in my situation what eventually lead to the dismissal of charges.

Domestic Violence Attorney


Generally, an incident is classified as domestic violence when a family or household member commits a criminal act on another family or household member. Common domestic violence offenses include assault, stalking, harassment, and a protection order violation.


A Domestic Violence Charge


A domestic violence charge can be a misdemeanor or felony crime, depending on the specific issues and circumstances of the case, and your past criminal history.


  • A misdemeanor domestic violence charge can be either a simple misdemeanor or a gross misdemeanor. The main difference between the two is the maximum amount of jail time the court can impose. A misdemeanor carries a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail, while a gross misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 12 months in jail.
  • A felony domestic violence charge can be a Class A, Class B, or Class C felony.


A Domestic Violence Conviction


A domestic violence conviction is serious, and the consequences range from required participation in an intensive treatment program to jail or prison sentences. The punishment for a domestic violence conviction depends on the specific issues and circumstances of the case, and your past criminal history.
