Getting Great Representation Is Important, Because The Consequences For Domestic Violence Charges In California Are Serious.
If you are convicted, your life may never be the same. Your case could be prosecuted as either a misdemeanor or a felony; depending on that, and a variety of other factors, you may have to come to terms with the realities of:
- Incarceration (time in jail and/or prison)
- Expensive fines
- Being unable to carry a firearm
- Eviction from current living situation
- Loss of custody and visitation rights
- Deportation or loss of status (if not a citizen)
- Mandatory rehabilitation and/community service
- Losing your job
- Losing your relationships
- A damaged record and reputation
- And more.
There are many factors that can affect what the exact penalties are, including if you have prior convictions, the manner of assault (for example, was it just threatening? Did it involve a weapon? How much harm did the alleged victim suffer?), and more.
We can investigate your case and present the strongest possible defense so you can either get the case thrown out entirely or get the consequences significantly minimized. A false accusation or a mistake shouldn’t take away all of your future opportunities.
What The Police See Isn’t Always The Full Story. There Are Many Possible Defenses That May Be Available To You!
When the police are called on suspicion of domestic violence and find evidence that violence did occur, they have to arrest someone per California’s “mandatory arrest” policy, but just because you are arrested doesn’t mean that you are truly guilty. There could have been a number of scenarios that apply to your situation where you could be exonerated.
You may have been acting in self-defense, or in defense of your children. The incident may have been a total accident, and you may not have meant to hurt them at all. The other person may have lied about what occurred. Relationships are complicated, and sometimes arguments escalate; even if you did cause harm, there may be other ways that our LA County domestic violence defense lawyers can protect your future from the consequences of conviction (by exploring police misconduct or other avenues).
