Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson Gets NOT GUILTY Verdict for Client Charged with Domestic Violence

 In January 2017, the Law Office of Matthew W. Peterson secured a NOT GUILTY verdict for our client charged with domestic violence.   If convicted, our client was facing jail time, probation, and loss of his gun rights.

   Our client was charged with pushing his wife down the stairs.  We argued that our client’s wife was using the charge to get ahead in her divorce, and there were no injuries consistent with being pushed off of the porch.

   The jury agreed and found our client NOT GUILTY of domestic violence.
