Domestic Violence Lawyer

If you are a victim of domestic violence, you are not alone. Mast Law Firm can help. It is estimated that 4 million women in the United States are victims yearly. Although women make up the vast majority of the victims, men and children are also victims. Violence cases receive special attention in North Carolina courts and are handled differently from other assault-related cases because the crime was committed in the context of a prior or existing domestic relationship. A domestic-related charge is extremely serious, as they usually cannot be expunged from a North Carolina criminal background check. A conviction can prevent you from owning a gun and can cause issues in divorce and custody proceedings. We take every single case we work on extremely seriously.
