Domestic violence can happen to anyone in any relationship, at any time, and at any place. It may be inflicted upon spouses, co-parents, significant others, or even simply people who live together. It can range from harassment and stalking to physically striking and attacking others.
Because the definition of domestic violence is so broad—and because the consequences of conviction or liability are so severe—it’s important for people accused of it to have experienced legal representation on their side.
At the Law Office of André J. Ausseresses, APC, it’s our goal to help people navigate this very serious allegation, which can include criminal charges. When we investigate and build claims for people accused of domestic violence, we do everything in our power to do what’s right for them, their loved ones, and their children, including protecting visitation and custodial rights.
Defense Against Domestic Violence Allegations
Many domestic violence allegations boil down to “he said, she said” scenarios. However, there are often many contributing or even conflicting factors that aren’t always brought up in court. They include:
- Acting in self defense against a potentially abusive or violent partner
- Whether physical contact was accidental or intended to do harm
- Whether the victim’s statements were contradictory or later retracted
- Whether alcohol, drugs, or other intoxicating substances were involved
- Whether there’s corroborating evidence that the alleged actions occurred
Our law firm has helped many people who have faced domestic violence allegations, and we know what evidence to look for when building strong claims to protect their rights. In addition, we also know how to find holes, inconsistencies, and outright fabrications to weaken or even disprove claims of violence.
There’s Too Much at Stake to Go It Alone
The consequences of being found liable for domestic violence charges are simply too great to ignore, to go it alone, or trust just any law firm. It’s vital that your case is represented by a law firm that understands the nuances and intricacies of domestic violence law in California and that has a track record of success to prove it.
Proceeding without qualified legal representation can result in:
- Loss of custody of children
- Reduced or lost visitation rights
- Restraining order
- Possible incarceration
- Loss of employment
- Loss of professional licenses
- Diminished career opportunities
- Mandatory classes
- Loss of spousal support
- Loss of ability to request attorney fees
- Loss of guns
- Loss of family pets
- Loss of one’s community interest in a pension
Courts and juries are often biased against people who are accused of domestic violence. Because of that, it’s incredibly important to have a resourceful, dedicated, and aggressive law firm on your side as soon as possible after allegations are brought against you. The sooner you contact our California domestic violence lawyers, the sooner we can start collecting evidence that proves your innocence or diminishes the severity of the charges and the consequences of liability.
