Domestic Violence Lawyers in Los Angeles
Helping You Protect Your Rights in Disputes with Loved Ones
A charge of domestic violence has the capacity to destroy your life overnight. In California, domestic violence is considered a violent crime and is pursued aggressively by the prosecution. Domestic violence charges can result in a wide range on penalties including restraining orders, fines, and jail time. With restraining orders and possible jail time facing you, it is crucial that you get started on defending your freedom as soon as possible.
At Gibbons & Gibbons, our Los Angeles domestic violence lawyers offer more than 60 years of combined experience to help you protect your future and avoid a criminal conviction. We understand the importance of telling your side of the story, and we are prepared to explore all options to prevent your life from being unfairly maligned.
Domestic Violence Charges in Los Angeles and Orange County
It is not uncommon to hear about false accusations of domestic violence. Before charges of domestic violence can be filed against you, an officer must come and investigate to determine whether or not there is a case for domestic violence. During this time, a Los Angeles domestic violence defense attorney can represent you and possibly stop charges from being filed at all.
Whether you were accused by your partner, your spouse, your child, or even a nosy neighbor or family member, your freedom should not depend on the speculation of others. Our Los Angeles domestic violence attorneys can represent you in a pre-trial investigation or in court after charges have been filed.
Defenses Against Charges of Domestic Violence
If charges of domestic violence do end up being filed against you, or if you are already facing charges, our Los Angeles domestic violence lawyer can provide the representation that you need. We have helped thousands of clients avoid the consequences of a conviction by ensuring their story is told and that they are fairly represented throughout their court proceedings.
If there are holes in the accusations against you, you can count on Gibbons & Gibbons to find them. By casting doubt on the domestic violence allegations, we may be able to have the charges against you dropped or reduced.
Some defenses against domestic violence charges could include:
- You are not the person who committed the crime: Sometimes, people simply hear noises and feel it is their civic duty to report it, leading police officers to investigate and use their best judgment about whether or not a person is guilty. Gibbons & Gibbons can help you illustrate the circumstances of your arrest so you are not convicted of something you didn’t do.
- The allegations are deliberately false: All too often, one parent will accuse another parent of violence at the same time there is negotiation about child support or custody. If this is the case for you, it is important that you are able to protect yourself.
- Self-defense: The use of physical force to defend against someone else’s violent acts is not the same as domestic violence. Our firm has access to important to legal experts throughout the community who can strengthen your side of the story and help you prove your innocence.
