Clark County Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

Domestic Violence is one of the most common crimes in America and police are often called to a person’s home to prevent a raucous situation from getting out of control. The degrees of domestic violence range from minor altercations such as a heated argument, tension from a pending divorce, or a child-rearing disagreement, to more severe cases of physical violence that endanger the welfare of a child. Sometimes the domestic violence escalates to a level that alerts the neighbors who in turn call the police. Drugs and alcohol are frequent contributors to domestic violence as are budget disagreements, and spousal infidelity. At the Law Office of John P.M. Rutan we have dealt with the full spectrum of causes of domestic violence in Clark County so nothing can surprise us. You need a Clark County domestic violence defense attorney who understands that contributing factors like those above can play a role leading to an altercation.

Factors that can lead to domestic violence include when one partner, feels inferior to the other. Inferiority can be caused by one having a naturally low self-esteem or jealousy of the success of the other. A partner might not feel needed any longer and that could cause them to lash out. The situation is exacerbated when drugs and alcohol are present. Financial, social and educational are areas where one spouse could outgrow the other causing an altercation or “blow-up” to occur. It is usually one spouse who misinterprets the actions of another that cause the domestic violence to occur.

These are just a few reasons why domestic violence occurs. There are much more.
