Compassionate Help For Domestic Violence Issues

Domestic violence is an extremely difficult issue for our society, as well as for the individuals affected by it. The legal system has struggled to deal with the problem in a way that protects the safety of victims while also respecting the rights of the accused.

At The Law Office of Nichole Dusché, in Nashville, Tennessee, I represent both people who have been accused of domestic assault and people who are seeking court orders to protect them from domestic assault. By representing both defendants and victims, I feel I have gained valuable insight into this difficult area of the law and the best ways to help my clients.

Assistance With Protective Orders

In the not-so-distant past, police could do little to prevent domestic violence. Instead, their role was reactive: They punished people who had committed severe domestic assault. As a result, the law often didn't get involved until it was too late to stop someone from getting badly hurt.

In more recent times, lawmakers began to see domestic violence as a pattern of behavior that, without intervention, gets worse over time. To break these patterns and prevent violence, Tennessee and other states began to offer protective orders. Orders of protection are meant to keep people away from the partners and relatives they might otherwise harm.

I help people secure protective orders in highly sensitive and high-pressure issues. I know what my clients are going through, and I work hard to give them the tools they need to stay safe. If you are in immediate danger or seeking immediate shelter from abuse, please contact your local police agency or call 911.

Strong Domestic Assault Defense

The flip side of the prevention-oriented approach to domestic violence is that it can mean that sometimes people are denied their rights before they have been given a full trial. However, the cornerstone of our justice system is that everyone accused of a crime deserves a defense.

As a criminal defense attorney, I provide defense for people accused of domestic violence and other crimes. I help them resolve their issues in a way that respects their rights and gives them a chance at a better future.
