Criminal Domestic Violence, or CDV, is one of the most serious and prolific criminal violations in South Carolina. A CDV arrest can arise out of a seemingly minor or insignificant incident once the police have become involved. The Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, located in Lexington, South Carolina, can help you or your loved one after a misdemeanor or felony level domestic violence arrest.

CDV Charges are different than other criminal charges. There is frequently a no contact bond order put in place that can subject you to 30 days or more in jail for simply just talking or e-mailing your spouse or significant other. Additionally there is a no drop policy that will prevent law enforcement or the Court from dismissing your case - even upon the request of the alleged victim. A conviction may result in a jail sentence, even for a first offense, and all convictions come with a publicly available criminal record.

We recognize that frequently CDV arrests come as a result of a situation being blown out of proportion, or are made due to an error of judgment by law enforcement. Arrests result even in circumstances where no one was injured - and even when the one arrested originally called the police. We fight hard for our clients to prevent them from being labeled a criminal due to false, misleading or inaccurate allegations.

James Snell is an experienced South Carolina Criminal Defense Attorney who has represented numerous clients charged with CDV. To discuss your case with him please contact our office at (888) 301-6004. There is no cost to discuss your case with our office.
