Domestic Abuse Charges Carry Serious Potential Consequences

In California courts, domestic violence is not tolerated. Courts set bail very high for people accused of domestic violence. If protective orders are also filed against you, you could lose access to your home and the right to possess a firearm. Make no mistake; a domestic violence conviction will change your life. We know you want to do what is right for your family, but you must also make sure you do everything you can to protect your own rights.

In addition to traditional domestic violence charges, you could also be charged for causing a traumatic condition, which may be nothing more than a red mark. A conviction for causing a traumatic condition could lead to up to four years in state prison. If your significant other called the police during a dispute, and you suddenly find yourself in jail, do not say anything until you have spoken to an attorney. Of all cases, domestic violence witnesses are the most apt to change their statement or to recant, by saying that nothing occurred. Such situations and the circumstances surrounding them are very valuable to a defense.

Completely dedicated to criminal defense, our firm has the resources to handle a wide range of domestic abuse cases and related concerns, from stalking to sexual assault. If a protective order has been placed against you, our attorney will make sure you understand its terms and conditions as we work to protect your personal freedoms.
