In Southern California those arrested for domestic violence can expect to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. If you have been accused of domestic abuse in any form, you can expect to be treated as a low-life, even if the evidence implies otherwise.
To sway the court in your favor you will need to obtain experienced domestic violence attorneys that have won similar cases in the past. While a rookie defense attorney might be able to clear your name, placing your future in the hands of an amateur is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Regardless of whether you’re being charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense, the penalties of a conviction can affect you throughout your lifetime and keep you from taking advantage of certain opportunities.
