Unfortunately, instances of domestic violence are all too common. In these cases, one or both spouses or intimate partners have engaged in abusive behavior toward each other, often leaving a visible injury. In other cases, children or the elderly have been exposed to physical harm or neglect. While most of these charges qualify as misdemeanors, prosecutors sometimes press felony charges given the severity of the crime, the age or physical condition of the victim, and other factors.
Whatever the case may be, these sensitive matters require aggressive representation. Viner Law P.C. is here to consult with you about your domestic violence case. Our law firm specializes in domestic violence law in Cedar Rapids, IA. For compassionate legal counsel, schedule a consultation at our office.

Victims of domestic violence face serious threats and require special protection, such as an injunction or restraining order. If you are the victim of domestic violence, your first step is to file a complaint with the police. Our domestic violence attorneys will provide the advice you need during this difficult time.
If you have been charged with a domestic violence-related crime, we help you build the strong defense you need. When police are called to the scene of domestic incidents, they are under pressure to defuse the situation by arresting somebody. However, there are cases when false reports of domestic violence are made by individuals seeking to gain an advantage in a relationship, such as during child custody cases. Penalties in these cases are severe, and include:
Protective or Restraining Orders
Termination of Parental Rights
Anger Management Programs
Supervised Child Visitations
Substance Abuse Counseling
