Long Beach Domestic Violence Attorneys

Domestic violence is charged when two people who are living together become combatants. Charges include assault, battery, stalking, emotional abuse, rape, and sexual assault. Women are most frequently the victims of domestic violence, but men are also victims. These charges are serious and can lead to significant penalties.

Most cases of domestic violence are extremely upsetting to all parties and the relationships can get quite complex when children are involved or protective orders are issued. Let an experienced and responsive domestic violence attorney provide you with the personal attention and counsel you need during this difficult situation.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a domestic violence crime, an attorney well-acquainted with California laws should be consulted without delay. West Coast Defense has years of experience in this area of law and can effectively represent you to mitigate the consequences of these charges.

Domestic violence charges in California cannot be ignored or handled privately. Per California law, a 911 call concerning a domestic violence incident will lead to an arrest of one of the parties if the officer finds any evidence of an altercation. Formal charges can be filed by the state prosecutor, even if the victim does not press charges. These strict laws stem from public outrage over highly publicized domestic violence cases that have resulted in serious injuries and even death when the parties were not immediately separated and brought to justice.
