An Effective Brainerd, Minnesota Assault Attorney Defending Your Rights

Comprehensive defense against domestic abuse charges

If you have been accused of verbal or physical abuse against your spouse, child, domestic partner or other relative, you need swift, strong defense. A conviction can mean harsh penalties including prison, fines, loss of custody rights or loss of gun rights, and may even affect your job or future job prospects. Don't risk it. I am Minnesota assault lawyer Dennis M. Lothspeich, and I will aggressively defend you. I have more than 25 years of experience as a formidable trial attorney and never hesitate to take my clients' defense into the courtroom.

Helping you understand domestic violence accusations

Domestic assault charges are becoming more common - and more heavily prosecuted - in Minnesota. You can be charged with domestic abuse under the state's Domestic Abuse Act if you committed one or more of the following acts against a family or household member:

  • Physical harm, bodily injury or assault
  • Terroristic threats
  • Criminal sexual conduct
  • Interference with an emergency call
  • Infliction of fear of imminent physical harm, bodily injury or assault

But in many cases, the charges arise from situations in which both people participate in escalating the conflict. You need the immediate support of a diligent Minnesota assault attorney if you are accused of:

  • Assault with a deadly weapon
  • Spousal abuse
  • Harassment
  • Violating a restraining order
  • Child abuse
  • Stalking
  • Sexual assault
  • False imprisonment

I have extensive experience defending both men and women against domestic assault charges that threaten their freedom and their rights. Don't hesitate to get the protection and tenacious defense you need, especially if the charges arise during divorce, child custody or child support proceedings.
