What Is Domestic Violence?

Under Georgia law, domestic violence is any act of violence that may otherwise constitute a criminal act—such as battery, assault, stalking, criminal property damage, unlawful restraint, and any other felony crime—between persons who have a special relationship to one another, such as:

  • Past or current spouses.
  • Persons who are parents of the same child.
  • Parents and children.
  • Parents and stepchildren.
  • Parents and foster children.
  • Persons who formerly or currently live in the same household.

In common occurrences, a domestic violence charge may also be brought between current or former boyfriends or girlfriends.

Despite being considered as a general criminal charge, domestic violence crimes are treated differently, and courts are empowered to impose restrictions upon defendants accused of domestic violence, even prior to any criminal conviction as a prophylactic measure. Consequently, it is critical that those accused of domestic violence crimes obtain the advice and assistance of an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.

Roswell domestic violence attorney Tom Rowsey has the qualifications and experience you need to represent you in any matter involving charges of criminal domestic violence. He has over 20 years of experience in both criminal defense and family law in the Fulton, Cobb, and Forsyth County courts. If you need help in a domestic violence matter, contact us by phone at (770) 993-5317, or use our online form.

Chris Smith

Tom did an excellent job setting up my LLC for my new business recently. I was in a situation where I needed the LLC formed quickly and Tom and his team were able to work on a very short deadline. Highly recommended!

GAAW Wright

Tom has been our attorney for many years. He has been with us through thick and thin. He has successfully handled all our queries and cases with patience and understanding. We highly recommend Tom!

Corey Rennolds

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.

Justina Allen

I met Tom over 10 years ago after settling in Roswell with my family. I have learned over the years that Tom is a man of high integrity, genuine and extremely knowledgeable in his field. Along with being honest, he is a straight shooter and will let you know where you stand. He will provide you with personal attention you don’t get at bigger firms and will go the extra mile. As legal matters can be frightening to deal with, Tom will guide you through the process and get you the results you need.
