Denver GLBT Domestic Violence Attorney
Domestic Violence in Same Gender Relationships
Under Colorado State law, domestic violence is defined as any act or threatened act of violence on a person with whom they are or were involved with in an intimate relationship. The law also defines an "intimate relationship" as any type of romantic relationship, not necessarily sexual, between couples. It does not matter how long the relationship lasted, whether they were married or not, living together, just dating or ever had children. It does not matter if the two people are heterosexual, gay, lesbian, bisexual or transsexual the same laws apply. If you or someone you know has been arrested for domestic violence you should speak to a Denver domestic violence lawyer at the Lancaster Law Office, LLC as soon as possible.
While law enforcement and the criminal justice system are already very unsympathetic to those accused of domestic violence, it can become even more difficult if you are involved in a same sex relationship to get the fair treatment you are entitled to receive. The best domestic violence attorney in Denver understands the lengths a prosecutor will go to get a conviction in a domestic violence case. Our entire firm is dedicated to protecting all of our client's rights and liberties and providing them with an aggressive and effective defense.
