Chattanooga Spousal Abuse Defense Attorneys
Domestic violence accusations are taken very seriously in Tennessee. If police respond to a domestic violence call, there is a good chance that someone is going to be taken to jail. Under Tennessee law, there is a mandatory 12-hour “cooling-off” period in domestic violence cases.
Physical harm is not necessary in a domestic violence case. Even the threat or reasonable fear of harm can be enough for an alleged victim to obtain a protective order. If you have been removed from your home or served with a protective order, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified Chattanooga domestic violence defense attorney immediately.

At the law firm of Summers, Rufolo & Rodgers, we have extensive experience handling cases involving all aspects of domestic violence. Our clients have included alleged abusers facing misdemeanor or felony domestic violence charges as well as alleged victims seeking help getting a protective order lifted.
In many cases, alleged abusers will contact the alleged victim in an honest effort to work things out. What they don’t realize is that most forms of contact usually violate a protective order, and they are suddenly facing much more severe consequences.
