FAQ #26: Is Verbal Abuse Domestic Violence?

When it comes to verbal fights or verbal threats, there is a distinction in the law about what you can say and what you can’t say. You cannot just fly everything under the banner of first amendment, "I can say whatever I want". Once you get to the point where you are threatening someone's life, you're threatening to kill them or do something that can result in their death and you have that seeming ability to carry it out, you are entering the felony area. You're entering prison time, potentially.

If it's just name calling and you're putting someone down, that's not going to rise to the level of criminal activity. If you've been arrested for something that you said to someone and now you're being charged with criminal threats, you need to hire us immediately. You're facing a very serious allegation. Our firm can help you show that that wasn't your intent and it was something that you just said in that moment.
