Our Mission: ”To empower, educate, and defend those charged with criminal offenses in Wisconsin and achieve the best possible outcome for their case.”Tracey Wood

Madison, WI Domestic Violence Lawyer

In The News

Wisconsin law doesn’t differentiate between domestic crimes and regular crimes. If you are facing domestic violence charges, your case is not hopeless. At Tracey Wood & Associates, we fight to get the most positive resolution in all cases for all of our clients.

Domestic Violence Defenses

In domestic violence cases, your best defense is having a strong advocate in your corner. A good attorney listens to your side of the story, investigates all angles, and helps you plan the best way to fight for your rights and reputation. Common defenses to domestic violence charges include:

  • Wrongful accusation – If it’s possible to prove that you were not at the scene and have a reasonable alibi, wrongful accusation can be an airtight defense strategy.
  • False allegations – This strategy involves finding inconsistencies in the victim’s story and poking holes in the prosecution’s argument.
  • Self-defense – This strategy is proven in court if you can show that a threat of violence was made, your response was appropriate, and you did not initiate the violence.
  • Victim consent – An uncommon defense strategy is consent, meaning the victim gave permission to perform a certain act.
  • Lack of evidence – You cannot be convicted if the prosecution cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt you are guilty.
