Riverside Domestic Violence Attorney

Have you been charged with domestic violence?

Domestic violence is a terrible thing, but so is being accused of domestic violence when you are innocent or there were mitigating factors in the case. In many domestic abuse cases, the person accused may be acting in self defense. Additionally, it is not always the man who instigates the fight or who is the aggressor. According to a recent study by the Department of Justice and the Center for Disease control, 25 to 35% of domestic violence victims are men. When a family altercation becomes heated, both individuals can be the aggressor at different points in the dispute, and both may act inappropriately.

The state of California takes domestic abuse matters very seriously, and zealously prosecutes these types of cases. If you have been accused of domestic abuse you should not try to speak with your accuser, as this is likely to make matters worse. The best thing to do is to contact an experienced Riverside criminal defense lawyer from Grech & Packer, who have represented hundreds of domestic violence cases. We are highly skilled in working with clients who have been accused of violent crimes, such as domestic abuse, assault, and child molestation. When there are false allegations made, you need a legal advocate who has the expertise to be able to point out the inconsistencies and falsehoods in the prosecution's case.

Penalties for Domestic Violence Charges

Domestic violence offenses may be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending upon the circumstance of the alleged crime. If serious injuries occurred, there is a good likelihood that you will be charged with a felony. If there were minor injuries, or if only threats were made, it is more likely that you may be charged with a misdemeanor. If you are convicted, you may be facing:

  • Jail time
  • Harsh fines
  • Community service
  • Not being able to have contact with your children
  • Having to move out of your home
  • A criminal record

We will use our many years of experience to minimize any jail time you may be facing, and, if possible, have your charges reduced or dismissed. We give you our commitment to pursue the best possible outcome in your case.
