1. Can the Sean Henricksen Law Firm get this case dismissed?
More than 85% of our clients’ misdemeanor assault family violence cases are dismissed without any type of plea or probation*. The sooner we start working on your case, the more likely it is that we can get the best result for your case.
2. Can I ask the alleged victim to drop the case?
No. That would be tampering with a witness. Additionally, the alleged victim in the case has no power to dismiss the case and the District Attorney’s office rarely dismisses cases just because the alleged victim wants it dismissed.
3. If I’m convicted, will I be able to own a gun?
No, if you are found guilty of assault to a family member, you will lose your right to own a firearm for the rest of your life.
4. How can I get this off my record?
The only way that you can have this charge removed from your record is by having the case dismissed, winning at trial, or the governor pardoning you. This is why it is important to hire an attorney that you trust and that has a record of getting these cases dismissed.
