Experienced Van Nuys Domestic Violence Lawyers
Domestic violence charges are a serious matter, particularly due to the number of cases in which the accuser tries to withdraw their allegations later and discovers that the prosecutor is the only one that can dismiss the case. This is a problem in many cases as the individual making the accusation may have exaggerated the situation, or may have been partially responsible. Many cases of domestic violence charges come about through a domestic disturbance call to law enforcement during an argument between any two “cohabitants”. When the police arrive on the scene, they evaluate the situation, including whether harm has been inflicted on one or both of the individuals, and act accordingly. If one of the individuals claims to be a victim of domestic violence, law enforcement has little option other than to arrest the accused individual. In any domestic violence case, it is crucial that you act quickly and contact an experienced domestic violence defense lawyer immediately.

Defending these charges can be a difficult situation, particularly when there are two conflicting stories about the incident. Do not answer questions about the incident if you are read your rights and are now being interrogated by police or other investigator. Whether the case involves a spouse, ex-spouse, girlfriend, boyfriend, cohabitant, domestic partner, roommate or any other person you live with, when domestic violence is the charge, you are in danger of being convicted and put in jail or prison, depending upon the details of the case.
