Domestic violence offenses involve dynamics that reach far beyond the traditional criminal defense practice. In order to be an effective advocate, a domestic violence attorney must recognize the emotionally charged nature of these offenses as well as the collateral effects of a prosecution on the client’s ability to return home, to see or communicate with their significant other and their children, and must be prepared to aggressively defend the case and ensure the client’s rights are protected in court and beyond.
While at the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office, Nicki Weisberger spent seven years as a special prosecutor focused on handling “special victim” cases that included sexual assault and Domestic Violence charges. She has a wealth of experience in the investigation, prosecution, and defense of these and related offenses.
