Domestic Violence Representation

We'll fight for you in family court

Unfortunately, when a marriage or cohabiting relationship runs into trouble, it's all too common for one partner to turn violent. Domestic violence is a serious issue in Arizona, and it can have major consequences for your family and your future. The Mesa family law attorneys at Brown, Naegle, Crider & Jensen LLC understand how much this matters, and we're here to help.

Attorney Brad Crider has handled dozens of cases in which domestic violence or allegations of domestic violence were involved. Under Arizona law, domestic violence can include the following:

  • Dangerous crimes against children
  • Reckless endangerment
  • Emotional abuse
  • Threatening or intimidating
  • Threatening to cause injury or damage
  • Assault
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Stalking
  • Using communication modes to terrify, intimidate, threaten, harass, annoy or offend
  • Making false reports to law enforcement

This is not an exhaustive list, of course. According to Arizona law, domestic violence is any dangerous crime committed against another member of the same household - whether a spouse, parent, child or other relative. That includes people who have previously resided with the offender even if they no longer live together.

Our attorneys will protect your interests

If you are a victim of domestic violence, we'll step in to help you right away. We can seek a protective order from a judge to help protect you against further acts of abuse. And we'll represent you faithfully in family court in your divorce, separation, custody battle or other matter, fighting to make sure that you and your children end up in a safe, healthy living situation. What happened isn't your fault, and your pain is unimaginable. We're here to help you take back control of your life and fight for the best possible future for your family.

Our attorneys also represent people who have been accused of domestic violence. Unfortunately, false allegations are commonly wielded as weapons in contentious divorces and custody battles, and they harm both the person who has been accused and actual victims of abuse. An allegation of domestic violence can affect every aspect of your divorce or separation, especially child custody. Attorney Crider partners with veteran defense lawyer Charlie Naegle to fight for people in this position in both family and criminal court.
