Letting the truth come out

We know that marriages are often filled with problems, some of which may result in a certain amount of tension between two people. Whether it is a matter of child rearing, professional goals or finances, small arguments often develop over time to become large disagreements. There are many acceptable ways to deal with this stress and ultimately resolve an argument, but we firmly believe that abusing the Nebraska criminal justice system by filing false accusations of domestic violence is not an appropriate method.

At McGoughLaw P.C., L.L.O., we believe in the power of justice. We also respect the system that dispenses it. That is why we fight so tenaciously to defend our clients against the spurious claims they face from their trusted family members. 

All too often, a disgruntled spouse may see the strategic benefit that a criminal conviction could provide in divorce proceedings against one of our clients. We attempt to dispel the bluster and posturing that is characteristic of many of these false claims in order to show what is truly underneath: a normal, if somewhat strained, domestic relationship.

One of the problems we see with these types of cases is that the accusation alone is sometimes enough to enrage an otherwise reasonable person. When emotions flare up, people tend to make mistakes that could seem to add support to untruthful claims.

Information helps people keep a level head, and that is why we always attempt to respond quickly and explain what is happening to each of our clients. To learn more, please visit us at our main website.
