Helping Clients Avoid the Most Serious Consequences

Our attorney is experienced in the defense of domestic violence charges. Over the years, we have helped many clients get their charges dropped or reduced. As your representative, we will investigate your situation to develop an effective defense strategy, aggressively challenge the prosecutor’s allegations, and protect your rights at every stage of the legal process.

A domestic violence conviction can result in:

  • Imprisonment
  • A criminal record
  • Loss of child custody and visitation rights

A key part of the defense strategy in domestic violence cases is to redefine the person. We present your case to show you as a real person and portray you in favorable terms, rather than as the brute the prosecution will attempt to portray. Whenever possible, we seek to obtain a dismissal of the charges or to mitigate the penalties that you may face. In some situations, we can seek an alternative to conviction, such as treatment for alcohol or substance abuse, or anger management counseling. Participation in these types of programs can be helpful when attempting to convince judges to reduce penalties.

Representation for Restraining Orders

Temporary restraining orders are often imposed in cases involving domestic violence. A hearing will be held for the final restraining order. We represent clients at these hearings in an attempt to prevent the imposition of a final restraining order. If a final restraining order cannot be avoided, we seek to limit the restrictions that are included in the order.

If you have been charged with domestic violence, call us at (714) 752-7037 to get the legal advice you need from a Santa Ana restraining order attorney.
