No one should feel afraid in their own home. No one deserves physical violence or hurtful words. As a victim of domestic violence, you have become a shadow of your former self. Contrary to what you may be thinking, you really do have the power to make it stop. You really can realize what has happened is not your fault. Reaching out is the first step toward freedom.
At the Augusta, Georgia, Law Offices of Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, we do not tolerate spousal abuse. Your safety is always our first priority. When you feel ready, we will take every step possible to make sure the pain and humiliation is ended. We will provide you with the resources you need to avoid family violence now and in the future.
Understanding Through Real World Experience
Shawn Hammond was the former attorney for Safe Homes of Augusta, which manages the local women’s shelter. He has extensive experience filing domestic violence petitions and requests for restraining orders. He also has an in-depth knowledge of domestic violence and assault resources to keep you safe, even during the times that can be the most dangerous— such as when you are leaving your abuser.
Defense Against Allegations of Abuse
At the Law Offices of Shawn P. Hammond and Associates, our goal is to help people take the best care of each other and their children. We take ethical actions and use a broad range of resources to help families resolve conflict without violence. Our experience has taught us that sometimes allegations of domestic violence are false. In those cases, helping people and their children means going to court to defend the accused.
