Domestic Violence

Cases of domestic violence very often involve people with no previous convictions who are going through difficult personal circumstances – perhaps financial problems or a divorce, or unemployment and all the related stress that brings with it.  Bail conditions that are imposed as a result of it can cause all manner of issues and split families up.  MTM has a great deal of experience of defending such cases and of making successful bail applications to avoid these conditions and of appealing against a Sheriff's decision.

The Crown takes a zero tolerance approach to prosecuting cases involving domestic violence. Crown policy is that a person charged with domestic violence should be kept in custody to appear in court as soon as possible – that could be until after the weekend or until the end of a holiday period such as the Christmas holiday.  Domestic violence is not just physical acts, and covers everything that could constitute domestic abuse.  A simple domestic argument can quickly get out of hand and fall within these guidelines.  

Taking early action is the best way to approach a case and get the best possible outcome. Call us on 0800 328 0944 for an initial free and confidential consultation
