Charges of domestic abuse can encompass many different forms of assault and battery. Most commonly, domestic violence is thought of as spousal or child abuse, but our practice includes defending people accused of criminal abuse or neglect of an elderly person, aggravated battery to a child (the alleged cause of shaken baby syndrome), and violation of protection orders.

At Wolfe & Stec, Ltd., we investigate each case fully and independently. Our attorneys are out-of-the-box thinkers who follow every potential line of criminal defense for our clients. We prepare each case thoroughly and are ready for trial. We will never plea bargain a case unless it is truly in our client’s best interest.
Domestic violence is a serious crime, and we know that there are often two sides to every story. Perhaps your accuser is sharing one version of events, but you see things differently. You deserve to have your side of the story told. That’s what we’re here for. We will listen closely to what you have to say – what you saw, heard, said and experienced when the event allegedly took place. Were there other people present? Was the accuser drinking alcohol or using drugs? How did police behave if they were called? All of these facts are very important in establishing your defense. We’re here to listen to your side of the story.
Perhaps domestic violence did take place, but you were not the person involved. You may have been at a friend’s or cousin’s house, sitting on the porch, when people began shouting. You were just at the wrong place at the wrong time and had nothing to do with the dispute. We know this happens. Tempers flare, people get hurt, and you just happened to be nearby, minding your own business. Because we’ve handled these cases before, we know how to defend clients who are wrongly accused. Contact our DuPage County domestic violence attorney at (630) 305-0222 and we will listen to what you have to say.
