Protecting Those Accused Of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence is a legitimate scourge on our society, but not all allegations of domestic violence are legitimate. Whether fabricated to get the upper hand in a family law case or simply for spite, wrongful allegations have the potential to ruin an innocent person’s life.
At Albani Law, LLC, I focus on protecting the rights of the accused and providing an aggressive defense against domestic violence charges for men and women in Denver, Breckenridge and surrounding Colorado communities.
I Can Help You Overcome Colorado’s Double Standard
There are two sides to every story. I understand that these cases are often the result of explosive arguments and that emotions are often running high on all sides. You can rely on me to conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding the allegations and find out the truth. I will make sure your side of the story is heard.
Typically, a criminal offense must be proven “beyond all reasonable doubt” which means there is a 99% chance the crime occurred. The standard is much different for domestic violence cases. They are judged on the standard of “preponderance of the evidence,” which means that a jury will convict if “it is more probably true than not” a crime occurred. This 51/49 standard incentives people to come forward and make domestic violence accusations, especially during emotional divorce or child custody proceedings. Heads, they gain the upper hand; tails, you are acquitted but still left to deal with the aftermath of the damaging accusations.
