About Domestic Violence Charges in Scottsdale

Scottsdale Domestic Violence Attorney

Under Arizona law, domestic violence is defined by the kind of alleged charges and the relationship between the defendant and the person bringing charges.  The relationship must be what is defined as a "qualifying relationship":

  • Marriage, former marriage, or currently living or having lived in the same residence.
  • The parties have a child together.
  • One party is pregnant by the other party.
  • There is a specified relationship by blood, marriage or court order between the accuser and defendant.
  • The charging party is a child currently or formerly cohabits in the same residence as the defendant and is a blood relative to the defendant's former spouse, or to someone who currently or formerly cohabits the same residence as the defendant.
  • The relationship between victim and defendant is or was a sexual or romantic one.

Domestic violence laws in Arizona have become much stronger recently, with many legislative and judicial changes.  Prosecutors have become aggressive in pursuing charges against the accused, regardless of the fact of the accuser's desire to prosecute.  The penalties can be very severe.  In such a climate, it is crucial that you are represented by someone who is intimately familiar with the recent changes in these laws and how the court system operates in Maricopa County.  Joshua Davidson is a Scottsdale domestic violence attorney.  As a former domestic violence prosecutor he understands the strategies and tactics prosecutors use to pursue convictions.  Strongly believing in the presumption of innocence, he started The Law Offices of Joshua S. Davidson, PLC to advocate for the rights of those accused of domestic violence.
