Phoenix Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

Protecting the Rights of the Accused in Domestic Matters

If you have been accused of domestic violence, you could be facing serious criminal penalties, as well as a restraining order that could forbid you from entering your own home or seeing members of your family. You are going to want an experienced lawyer on your side right away.

I am Zach Murphy, a Phoenix domestic violence defense attorney serving clients throughout the metro area. As a trial-experienced former prosecutor who has been practicing criminal law since 2002, I am prepared to effectively defend my clients against these serious accusations.

Representing Clients in Felony, Misdemeanor and Restraining Order Proceedings

In Arizona, domestic violence is defined as violence committed within a marital, family or otherwise domestic relationship. Allegations of domestic violence can arise in a number of different circumstances and can result in both criminal charges and orders of protection.

Whether you were involved in an argument that got out of hand or someone is making false or exaggerated allegations against you, I can help you explore and follow through on all of your options for avoiding harsh criminal penalties and a permanent restraining order.

If you have been accused of domestic abuse, I can defend you against your criminal charges and represent you in protective order proceedings. To schedule a free consultation to discuss your case, please contact my office in Scottsdale at 602-788-2188 or by e-mail.
