An Effective And Knowledgeable Advocate

Domestic violence is considered threats or abuse from a person with whom the victim has a close relationship, be it familial or romantic. According to California law, physical abuse includes instances of:

  • Physically hurting the individual or attempting to do so
  • Threatening physical abuse
  • Sexual assault
  • Harassing or stalking behavior

If you or a loved one faces domestic violence charges, it is crucial to retain an experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney. Dod Law, APC, has the knowledge and effectiveness that you need.

Serious Charges, But Crucial Ways To Defend

Domestic violence charges are more serious than an assault and battery charge. California prosecutors crack down on domestic violence accusations, even if wrongly accused out of anger or jealously or if you face a false allegation. If placed on your permanent criminal record, a domestic violence charge will surface in background checks and may hinder you from gaining employment or housing.

In domestic violence cases, prosecutors must prove that the accused individual intentionally acted violently, resulting in a physical injury and caused a traumatic response to the person injured. There are defenses, however, and they include:

  • A lack of intent
  • Self-defense
  • False accusations
  • Lack of concrete proof
