Domestic Violence Cases

Most defendants accused of domestic violence in Southern California make the tragic mistake of representing themselves at arraignment. They take time off of work (losing money) and wait all day for their case to get called (wasting time) only to find out the prosecutor hasn’t filed the case yet. In some busy courthouses, like the Long Beach Courthouse and Westminster Courthouse, it may take months for your case to be filed. You may later receive a notice to appear in the mail and have to take off another day from work (losing money and causing a problem at their job). It gets worse! When you are finally arraigned, the judge may issue a “No Contact” restraining order. It may be a “No Violent Contact” order or a complete “No Contact and stay away” order keeping the defendant from his/her spouse, children and his place of residence. Now you may need to find some place else to live….and quickly. You may have tried in vain to explain to the judge your side of the story.

Remember, hiring an attorney can actually save you money, save your job and maintain contact with loved ones when you need it the most.
