El Dorado Hills Domestic Violence Attorney Serving California
Domestic Violence Allegations & Your Rights
Any criminal charge has the potential to change one’s life forever. Domestic violence charges are particularly serious, due to the efforts by legislators and law enforcement agencies to enforce enhanced penalties and take specific preventative measures to discourage domestic abuse and protect its victims from further harm. Once the police are involved, they will most likely make an arrest. Once they make an arrest, they will most likely pass the case to the prosecuting attorney, who will have the sole power to determine whether to press charges, in spite of what the alleged victim may or may not want to do.

Do I Need a Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer?
If you are accused of domestic violence, hiring a lawyer is the best thing you can do to protect yourself. You need to remember that the police and prosecution are certainly not on your side.

Only your El Dorado Hills domestic violence defense lawyer will be in your corner, fighting to protect your rights and liberty.
When it comes to domestic violence, there are various defenses to consider:
- False accusations made out of anger, jealousy
- False accusations made in an attempt to gain custody rights of shared children
- False accusations to gain the upper hand in a divorce or separation
- An incident that was actually an accident and was not done intentionally or willfully
- An act of self-defense made in an argument or struggle
- Exaggerated accusations of an incident that was no more than a typical disagreement
