Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence involves any chronic threat, physical force or violence between spouses, domestic partners or significant others in a way that injures or endangers that person. This could include behaviors such as hitting, grabbing, choking, throwing things and assault with a weapon. Sometimes, it could include sexual or unwanted touching by one partner to the other.

Although domestic violence refers to a pattern of behavior over time, any single domestic violence charge should be taken seriously. The definition of domestic violence can be vague, and the threshold for making a domestic violence complaint is low. There are often no witnesses other than the accuser and the defendant.

Domestic Violence charges can lead to much more serious charges such as AssaultRape and other sexual charges. A pattern of undefended Domestic Violence charges can lead to convictions and other personal consequences such as loss of child custody and employment. As with other violent crimes, conviction on these charges usually involves prison time. You can also check about federal defense attorney.

You need to be informed of the way these cases are prosecuted so that you don’t incriminate yourself. Most often, these types of cases are difficult for the accused to fully understand. Even if the alleged victim does not want to press charges, the prosecution can still proceed, and you can be convicted against the wishes of the alleged victim.

The prosecution can proceed with a Domestic Violence charge even if the victim does not want to press charges. A domestic violence conviction can lead to serious consequences.

Do not make a statement to any law enforcement officer before you have spoken to a lawyer who can protect you and your rights. An attorney can also discuss with you the advisability of continuing to associate with your domestic partner, spouse or girlfriend. In some cases, continuing this situation creates a serious risk.

Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub.


I hired Gina and her team for my son who was facing 10 years for something they said he did when he was 17 years old. Gina was like a lioness protecting her cub. She did not stop. She fought hard and was able to defend the charges. We are so grateful to her and her team. They gave us our son. He recovered his life!

Best defense lawyers in the country.


I hired this law firm in 2014 for my son who was facing 16 years in prison for a felony robbery. Lina Helou answered all our questions. I was extremely distraught regarding what my son was facing but Lina comforted me and told me that it would be okay. And thank goodness LibertyBell saved my son from going to jail and they were able to obtain only 3 years of probation. I could not have hired a better law firm for my son and if you want the best defense call LibertyBell Law Group. Thank God for this great group of lawyers.

A great team of lawyers.


I do not have enough words to describe how incredible the experience with this firm was. They work very hard to make sure you have winning results. I could not have asked for better service from the moment I called, until my case was over. I was glad I made the right choice. Thank you again LibertyBell Law Group!

She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence.


My father had found this group through his company and coworkers. I was assigned Gina Tennen and I cannot explain in just a review on how gratefull I am to be working with her. My case was an accusation of unlawful sex. This had looked extremely bad on my part since I was in a fraternity and she was in a sorority. During these times with Greek life, there are too many bad stigmas surrounding these organizations. Gina had believed in me and knew that I was innocent and that these accusations just were not true. She took her time to review all of my evidence and proved my innocence. I totally recommend this law group because they are willing to put in the work to help your situation.

Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding.


When I first heard I was under a criminal investigation, I initially thought I would try and resolve this in the best way possible, without legal representation, as we were all interested in a "just" outcome. I quickly discovered that was not the case and contacted Gina at LibertyBell. She clearly described the expectations and the choices available to me. She was always available to me, and when I called, if she couldn't talk with me at that time, she would quickly get back to me. Gina always kept me fully aware of how the case was proceeding. Her fee's were stipulated up front, as well as what those fees covered and what they did not.

Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one.


Attorney Gina Tennen was on point from day one putting pressure on the sherrif's office to get things handled. With Child molestation accusatinos being thrown around Gina and Attorney Castro were great at keeping the pressure on and had no charges filled. The DCFS indications were appealed and we won with flying colors. Great service, great work, and will use again for all legal matters.

Will Recommend, Total Experience, Awesome Team


Being involved in legal matters can be scary. When researching who to put my trust in, I came across Liberty and I am glad that I did. From the first time that I met with Gina and her team she made me feel comfortable and listened to all that I had to say. She assured me that her team would be on it and that they would do everything that they could! A little while in, Alan took over my case. When meeting with him you can tell that this is his passion and I immediately knew he was going to do everything in his power to make the outcome right! He was relentless and worked day and night working on the case. He kept in constant communication with me and truly cared not only about me but about my family as well. I am forever grateful for the support that this whole team has given me and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for truly the best lawyers!
