San Fernando Valley Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence occurs frequently across the San Fernando Valley, with many families torn apart by the aftermath. Domestic violence includes any act of aggression against a family member, such as a spouse, child, relative or partner. Often there can be events in a family that trigger some form of aggression that result in a call to the police. This could ultimately end up with you being arrested or charged for domestic violence, when in fact it may have been an argument and an accusation of violence in retribution.

Because domestic violence calls are seen as some of the most dangerous to respond to by police officers, these types of charges are taken very seriously by law enforcement in the San Fernando Valley and Van Nuys areas. You can expect aggressive investigation and prosecution by law enforcement and therefore will need to retain a professional Van Nuys criminal lawyer who can skillfully represent you against these charges.
