Same Sex Domestic Violence Cases Have Their Own Complications

While the law is designed to treat all domestic violence cases the same, regardless of the genders of those involved, this is unfortunately not always how the law actually works. A jury might make assumptions that affect the fairness of your trial. Judges might do the same thing.

We Help Aggressively Fight Your Case

California law is quite strict on domestic violence crimes. In fact, most District Attorney’s offices actually have special units dedicated to prosecuting domestic violence offenses. Prosecutors in these units sometimes continue to move cases forward even if the alleged victim does not want to press charges, or if the victim recants their allegations. Unfortunately, this can result in innocent individuals facing charges for actions they did not take at all or undertook in self-defense.

Considering you could face jail time on a domestic violence conviction—even if the offense is a first-time misdemeanor—you cannot afford to just sit back and let aggressive prosecutors determine your fate.

Instead, you need to be proactive.
