Serving Chula Vista and Other Areas: California Restraining Order Lawyer
A conviction for domestic violence — even a first offense — carries heavy penalties. You may be barred from your home, required to pay for and attend a year-long series of domestic violence counseling sessions, or you may be sentenced to time in jail.
In my 25 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer serving San Diego, Temecula, and communities throughout Southern California, I have seen many domestic violence cases which start simply with an argument that quickly gets out of hand. “Domestic violence” does not necessarily involve a marriage –it can occur between former spouses, those in a dating relationship, neighbors, and others in a close relationship.
No matter what circumstances led to an arrest for domestic violence, it is critically important to get an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side as soon as possible. Domestic assault and restraining order cases can get complicated very quickly. Early intervention by an experienced advocate can make a major difference in the outcome of the criminal domestic assault case and a civil restraining order case.
