San Bernardino Domestic Violence Lawyer
Criminal Defense for Domestic Abuse Allegations, Arrests & Charges
Domestic violence is taken very seriously by law enforcement and prosecuting attorneys. When violence is allegedly committed against a spouse, family member, or other loved one, the police will typically make an arrest at the scene. They will assess the situation and are required to make an arrest if they have reason to believe that domestic violence occurred. If the police are able to provide sufficient evidence to the prosecuting attorney’s office, the prosecutor assigned to the case can decide to press charges – even if the victim does not want to.

How serious is a domestic violence charge?
Allegations of domestic violence carry major criminal charges and security repercussions. If a culprit has two or more previous convictions of domestic violence, a 3rd charge is prosecuted as a third-degree felony. You should hire a criminal defense lawyer who can challenge the charges early and aggressively to limit the damage.
