You Were Not Near the Scene When the Alleged Incident Took Place
If you are accused of assaulting someone at 4 PM on a Tuesday afternoon but you were at work at that time, then you may have a strong defense. Of course, this only works if you are able to prove your alibi. We can help work with potential witnesses and recover other evidence that you were not at the scene when the alleged incident took place.
The Allegations Are Entirely False
It is unfortunate but sometimes alleged victims have made up their story. They may be going through a divorce or separation and are trying to get revenge. They may be trying to get the upper hand in a child custody case. They may even be guilty of domestic violence themselves and are attempting to point the finger the other way. Whatever their reason, if they are making up their story we can look for inconsistent statements that will poke holes in their story.
You Were Acting in Self-Defense
It is often the case that a person who is being charged with domestic violence was actually just defending themselves. Remember that it is not enough for the prosecution to prove that you took a specific action – they must also show that you did so illegally. If you were acting to defend yourself, or a child, from what you considered an imminent threat then we can use this fact to fight your charges.
There is Not Enough Evidence to Prove You Are Guilty
If the prosecution has not done their job in proving that you committed the crime then the charges should be dropped or dismissed. Your domestic violence attorney in Laguna Niguel CA can work to convince the judge to do so. If you contact us early enough, we may be able to prevent the prosecutor from ever filing charges based on the fact that there is a lack of evidence of your guilt.
