Protecting Yourself And Your Family
It’s an unfortunate fact that many Bay Area families and households struggle with domestic violence on a regular basis. In some cases, assault and abuse lead directly to divorce. In other situations, domestic violence restraining orders become an unfortunate part of daily life.
If your family suffers from domestic violence, get the legal and practical advice you need from an experienced lawyer at . Our attorneys advise both the victims and the alleged perpetrators of domestic violence and sexual assault (when the facts reasonably indicate that they have been falsely charged.)
We advise victims about their legal and practical options for keeping themselves and their children safe from the perpetrators of domestic violence through the courts and through community services. We can address complex divorce and child custody issues that intersect with domestic violence.
Fighting False Allegations
Our firm also represents people who have been accused unfairly of a wide range of domestic violence charges. We can represent you at the hearing that will extend or vacate a temporary restraining order, and we can investigate the charges against you to show that they were fabricated or grossly exaggerated.
Whether we represent a victim or a person falsely charged with a crime, we employ as necessary the services of a skilled private investigator to supplement our investigation and to assist in fully discovering all material facts relevant to the legal matter involved. Doing so is often in a client’s best interests.
For people with a history of domestic violence who are interested in turning their lives around for the sake of themselves and their children, we can help you get access to the counseling and treatment programs that can make the greatest positive difference for you, and help present the results in court as necessary to advance your legitimate interests as a parent.
