DV Defense Attorney in South Bay Beaches, CA
Domestic violence charges accuse defendants of violence or abuse toward family or household members. Unlike most criminal charges, you could face serious penalties just from being accused. Domestic violence charges are among the few charges that can remove you from your home without due process if you’re hit with a temporary restraining order.
Domestic violence charges can include a wide range of offenses, including:

The penalties for domestic violence can be severe, including fines, jail time, probation, mandatory counseling, and anger management classes. In addition, a domestic violence conviction can result in a criminal record, loss of employment, loss of your home, and even the loss of custody of your children.
With the right defense lawyer, you could shield yourself from most or all of these consequences.
If you are facing domestic violence charges, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney by your side.
