Domestic Violence Cases in Beverly Hills
A person charged with a domestic violence crime is often forced to leave their place of residence through a restraining order. They may not be allowed to enter their home, may be temporarily or permanently prohibited from seeing their children, and be subjected to a social stigma at work, with family, friends, and neighbors. A restraining order may be issued by a court, even when the alleged victim does not want it, which prohibits the defendant from making contact with the victim, sometimes for as long as 10 years.
Once the police have been called into a domestic violence incident, they must file a police report which gets turned over to the prosecutor’s office. At that point, even if the alleged victim does not wish to pursue charges, it is no longer his or her decision. The only person in control is the prosecutor, who has the power to either file charges or dismiss the case. If you have retained the services of a defense lawyer at our firm, he can intervene on your behalf with the prosecutor. Because our attorneys are highly-regarded by local prosecutors, judges, and law enforcement, they may be able to negotiate in support of you, the client. That is just one of the many benefits you will gain from working with our criminal defense firm.
