Domestic Violence Protecting Our Clients' Rights

Phoenix Domestic Violence Lawyer

Domestic violence is a term used for various crimes that are considered dangerous within a “domestic” setting. Unfortunately, domestic violence is a prevailing social problem within the U.S. and Arizona, which has resulted in laws enacted to protect victims and children against these crimes. 

If you or someone you know has been arrested and charged with a domestic violence offense, retaining skilled legal counsel is necessary to fight for a favorable result. The Arizona courts can penalize alleged offenders in various ways, from jail time to heavy fines, restraining orders, lengthy probation, and more. 

At Ryan Garvey Attorneys, PLC, we offer focused and aggressive legal help in defending clients against domestic violence allegations. Attorney Garvey has a reputation for getting results in the cases he handles. As a former prosecutor and nationally recognized trial lawyer, he brings professional precision and care to Arizonans facing these serious matters.
