Domestic Violence & Assault

An Experienced Attorney to Defend You Against Domestic Violence Charges

Were you involved in a heated argument with your spouse or some other person you know? Were the police called out to your home? Have you since been charged with domestic violence?

If you are facing conviction for domestic abuse, you are likely scared and unsure of how this will affect you in your future. I see my job as working hard to mitigate, or minimize, any potential consequences you might be facing.

I am Kansas City domestic violence lawyer David M. Lurie, and I have been providing strong representation to clients in Missouri and Kansas for more than 36 years. I understand that sometimes good people make bad decisions. I will do everything I can to help you get beyond this situation. As soon as you learn you will be charged or if you have already been charged, contact my law firm in Kansas City or Lee's Summit to learn exactly how I can help you.

Mitigating Criminal Consequences in All Domestic Violence Cases

As your lawyer, I will work hard to build your defense and minimize any penalties arising out of domestic violence charges involving:

  • Thrown objects
  • Pushing or shoving
  • Hitting or other physical assault
  • Sexual assault
  • Assault with a weapon

A conviction for any family violence charge can affect future employment opportunities, the ability to possess a firearm, and even parenting time with your children. The earlier I can begin representing you, the better your chances are for limiting these and other consequences. If there are underlying issues, such as emotional or psychological concerns, I can help you find the assistance or treatment you need.

When mitigation is not possible, I will work with a team of litigators who will take your case to trial.
