Have You Been Accused of Domestic Violence?

Sadly, false accusations of domestic violence or spousal abuse are common techniques for gaining advantage in divorce and other family law disputes.

If you have been arrested for domestic violence, we can represent you in the restraining order hearing in family court. It is imperative to be represented by an attorney at this hearing to protect your constitutional rights. Without legal representation, anything you say can be used against you in your criminal case. Standing alone, without counsel is a recipe for disaster as, of course, you will want to tell your side of the story. Unfortunately, telling your side of the story will often give the police, the District Attorney and the prosecuting team lots of ammunition that will be used against you. Moreover, without counsel, it is very likely that you will have a restraining order issued against you. Domestic Violence is not only a crime, it is a politically sensitive issue where the system almost always comes down HARD on those arrested for Domestic Violence.

Once a restraining order is taken out against you, you cannot go home — not even to retrieve your clothes or other personal belongings. It gets worse. Rest assured, you will not be treated equally in any upcoming divorce and child custody issues.
