Domestic Violence in Clarksville, TN
Domestic violence is a serious matter and a common issue in divorce and family law cases. The unfortunate reality is that domestic violence and spousal abuse often go unreported. Our firm wants to make it clear that domestic violence should never be tolerated in any form or in any situation. We have worked on many cases involving domestic abuse and we give every effort to achieve justice for Clarksville residents who have been victimized by their partner.
If you have been subjected to domestic violence, or if you have a domestic violence issue relating to your divorce or child custody case, we urge you to bring your situation to the attention of a compassionate and understanding lawyer from our firm.
Common Types of Domestic Violence
Domestic violence can be defined as the abusive behaviors committed by one spouse or partner against another. Domestic violence can be physical or emotional, habitual or isolated, and can include a variety of behaviors and actions.
Some of the most common domestic violence issues involve:
- Physical assault
- Threats of physical violence
- Sexual abuse
- Emotional or psychological abuse
- Financial control
Domestic violence can happen to anyone, regardless of age or gender. These situations create un-healthy households and negative environments through their use of intimidation, manipulation and aggression. We firmly believe that no one deserves to be treated in this manner and we have the resources, experience and legal knowledge that can help prevent further occurrences.
If domestic violence plays a role in your divorce, there can be a large impact on the way courts determine issues involving property distribution and children. We understand dealing with all of these impersonal legal proceedings at once is no easy feat and our firm can handle them for you with precision, tact and experience that will allow you to live life as you deserve.
Taking a Stand
While we take a personal interest in every case and devote our efforts to being caring, personable and understanding, we also know when to draw the line between legal advice and personal interference. We always remain professional in situations involving domestic violence because we know these cases are extremely personal and incredibly difficult. You can be confident that we will provide you with genuine compassion, support and resources to help you through this process, and if necessary, fight aggressively to defend your rights. We will also provide you with the legal options and actions you can take to protect yourself while respecting your decisions.
Our firm always maintains strict client-attorney confidentiality and will never force or influence you to act in any way you do not agree with. These are serious matters, and we want victims to know that they do not have to undertake this process alone. There are steps and legal measures you can take to protect yourself, and with our legal assistance, we can help make them happen as smoothly and quickly as possible. Protection orders, or restraining orders, are civil actions that courts enact to protect you from any further violence. Our firm also has ample experience in criminal proceedings and can take the necessary actions to prosecute abusive parties in a criminal court if you choose to do so.
You have a voice and our firm is here to listen. We make ourselves easily accessible and approachable because we believe treating clients with compassion creates a positive and productive atmosphere that can result in successful outcomes in both legal and personal situations. We are here to help support clients, diffuse situations and smoothly resolve legal worries, never to complicate matters or turn them into combative legal wars.

I hired their law firm for a legal case and not only were they highly professional but always courteous and respectful. They exceeded my expectations and got me everything I needed. If I ever need legal services again I will definitely be choosing them in the future.- Lisa S.
If you need legal counsel then I highly recommend you make an appointment with this firm. Mr. Sensing was my attorney and is very dedicated to his clients going to great lengths to provide the very best defense possible. Stays in touch with his clients always bringing them up to speed on what is being done in their case providing copies of everything to the client. HONEST, LOYAL, AND DEDICATED this firm gets 5 stars.- Brad H.
I took a trip out to TN and got in to some trouble in Clarksville and needed representation for a case while I was I back in my home state. I went to Grimes, Sensing & Clemons feeling distraught and like I had no hope, seeking a solid defense attorney that would actually fight for my case and get me the best possible deal. I left feeling comfortable and confident. I can honestly say I was not disappointed, the only time I needed to come back to TN was for the sentencing(mind you cases may differ) and unbelievably Jeffery Grimes was able to pull a rabbit out of a hat and get a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor as well as talk down the court fines... I strongly suggest Jeffery Grimes as your defense attorney for any legal issues you may have, also their fees are very reasonable and they will do payment plans. Thank you very much Grimes, Sensing and Clemons.- Spence W.
Thank you so much Grimes, Sensing & Clemons PLLC!! I've been working with them for months and I couldn't be happier. Grimes helped with all of the little details I didn't even know I needed. He is always friendly and ready to answer all of my questions. Your attention to my case has allowed me to focus on what's important to me, healing and family. Thank you for helping me I know it’s your job but the peace of mind you gave me is priceless. Thanks again! ~ YC- Satisfied Client
I hired Mr Sensing to assist me with the modification of a parenting plan that just wasn’t working anymore. I hired another lawyer in the Clarksville area that did not do their due diligence. Mr Sensing and his team were great throughout the process. Emails and phone calls were actually returned in a timely manner! Which wasn’t the case with the lawyer I used before. I had access to all my court documents and was always kept informed on what was going on with my case. Lastly Mr Sensing is very experienced and knowledgeable in his field. The outcome for my request was better than I could have hoped for, and I honestly feel like that was due to Mr Sensing.- Toni M.
Grimes is the best defense lawyer you could ask for. He was able to take what would generally be a felony for sure and get it down to a misdemeanor and a fine. If you have him as your lawyer, you won't have anything to worry about.- Dennis H.
Mr.Grimes made my case go very smoothly and easily for me I was out of state for a good part of it he went out of his way to let me know if something changed and he was always very professional and fairly priced! I would recommend him a thousand times over!!- David L.
Mr. Sensing is an excellent attorney. He fought with me the whole 2 years my case took for me to get the time with my son I’ve always wanted. I will definitely recommend his services to anyone and I will be going back to him if I have any issues in the future. Also Pat and Amy are awesome!!- Satisfied Client
