Facing domestic violence charges is stressful not only because it’s a criminal issue you’re forced to deal with, but also because the charges impact your family (e.g. wife/husband) and many times your kids.
And when put in that situation you don’t know where to turn for help, especially when it comes to choosing a domestic violence defense attorney/firm with the knowledge and experience to aggressively defend your rights and fight for the best outcome possible.
If you have read up until this point there’s a good chance either you or someone you care about is facing domestic violence charges, and when choosing a domestic violence attorney in Los Angeles or anywhere else in the country there are a few things to look for…
For one, with domestic violence charges on the table you clearly need a criminal defense law firm to guide you through the process, though they have to be experienced in solving your particular problem.
As an example, a Los Angeles criminal defense firm might focus heavily on DUI cases with the goal of doing hundreds if not thousands per year, and they’re great at that, but how good will they be at defending domestic violence charges if they’ve never handled those cases in the past? Find a defense attorney with experience in domestic violence as well as in the courthouse where your case is being heard (e.g. in Downtown LA, Pasadena, San Fernando, Van Nuys).
Secondly, as with most things in life, you have to actually like and trust who you’re working with whether it’s a mechanic fixing issues on your car or a domestic violence defense attorney with your life in their hands. First research attorneys to understand their experience then contact them and see if you get good vibes.
Lastly, go with your intuition – humans are intelligent and after speaking to various defense attorneys you’ll get a feel for the solution that’s best for you.
