Domestic Violence Assault

domesticDefense of Domestic Violence Assault Charges

Alaska has among the highest rate of domestic violence in the country. The reasons can be debated but here are a few of our unique circumstances:

  • Alaska has little daylight during the winter
  • Many Alaskans suffer from SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
  • Alaska has a significant rate of alcohol abuse
  • Alaska has a high rate of unemployment especially in the villages

Economic stress and depression fueled by alcohol consumption is a volatile combination of factors. It may take only a small spark to ignite a major domestic violence eruption. In addition to high domestic violence rates, Alaska is also first in the nation with the highest rate of female homicide victims where a male is charged with the crime.

At the Law Offices of Robert Herz, P.C., we have handled hundreds of defendants charged with domestic abuse and domestic assault. We also represent individuals charged with murder or manslaughter.

Protecting Your Record and Your Rights

  • Charges dismissed; but if not dismissed then. . .
