Domestic violence is an area in which we represent the accused and often the victims (although not in the same case). Victims’ rights have expanded greatly over the last few years. We can assist a person who is a victim with making sure their rights are asserted on their behalf and ensuring they are fully aware of the options available to them.
For those accused, domestic violence can result in a misdemeanor or felony conviction. In California, for either there is a mandatory 52 week batterers program as well as numerous other convictions, for example no possessing a firearm for 10 years for a misdemeanor for permanent ban for a felony conviction.
