Below are some sample practice areas in which Ashbach Law Offices, LLC regularly provides defense for its clients charged with assault and harassment crimes.

Assault and Domestic Violence

The most common crime allegation we deal with is probably that of assault. These accusations often carry the domestic violence, or “DV” tag, which can significantly raise the penalties that are imposed up on conviction. A strong, winning defense for these cases is a must. The impacts of an assault or domestic violence conviction can be severe. For example, an assault (DV or not) conviction would disqualify someone from working in the medical field entirely. We often have clients come to our office in tears because of the stress and fear an accusation brings.
Our clients often come to us, having been separated from their family due to court orders. We work hard and fast to reunite families and repair relationships.

No Contact Orders

Our office defends quite a few people charged with violating a No Contact Order as well as those who are defending against the imposition of a No Contact Order. For many, if a court were to grant a No Contact Order, the person restrained would lose out of employment, security clearances, and may not be able to see or communicate with loved ones. We take these cases very seriously, and our results bear that out. To learn more about defense of No Contact Order petitions, and defense of accusations of violating orders, visit our No Contact Orders page.


Harassment is often coded as a Domestic Violence crime, for instances where the person allegedly harassed was a family or household member as defined by state law. That definition is quite broad. Regardless, a harassment conviction can be quite debilitating. An accusation needs to be aggressively defended.
