Domestic Violence

Murrieta Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

Proven Legal Advocacy from the Attorneys in Riverside County

When facing charges of domestic violence, it is important that you act now to defend yourself against the tough penalties that result from a conviction. Accusations of domestic violence can result in misdemeanor or felony charges, depending on the severity of the event and other factors.

If you are convicted, then you could be sentenced with jail or prison time, expensive fines, mandatory anger management treatment or batterer's counseling, probation, and more. You could also be served with a restraining order that prevents you from contacting your loved ones.

What Is the Definition of Domestic Violence?

California Penal Code § 273.5 prohibits physical injury to a spouse or another person with whom you share a living space. Domestic battery is addressed in Penal Code § 243(e), while Penal Code § 422 prohibits threatening another person with physical injury.

Too often, charges of violating these laws are simply untrue and stem from false accusations made by alleged victims in the heat of the moment or due to misleading circumstances. Don't let false charges threaten your freedom and your ability to see your family. Enlist the help of a Murrieta domestic violence attorney who can help you prove your innocence.
