Fresno Domestic Violence Attorney

Although there is never a time to strike your partner in a moment of anger we understand that there are situations where tensions flare and emotions can get the best of us.

We also understand that there are circumstances resulting in a charge that may not have happened and an arrest should not have occurred to begin with.  Unfortunately it does not take much to be arrested for a domestic violence accusation.  Sometimes all that it takes is a very upset and convincing spouse or an officer who is quick to judge or be a hero. 

The reality is, in the State of California a domestic violence victim does not need to have visible bruises in order to claim assault or battery.  Oftentimes all that is necessary to warrant an arrest can be something as little as verbal threatening, an unauthorized touch or a brush against the body even if there was no physical pain that resulted from it. 

Of course there should be some rationale applied by an officer prior to breaking out the handcuffs but many times that simply is not the case and you can be arrested and charged regardless of how serious the situation actually was.

With many years and numerous cases dealing with domestic violence charges we have seen cases where an assault actually did not occur but due to instances that have led up to an arrest, a “victim” claims assault even though it never truly happened, many times out of spite or maliciousness hoping to disrupt your life.

Dealing with domestic battery or domestic assault charges is troubling in itself because it can mean that your reputation, your career and your future can all be at stake.  In the court of law you are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but in life, “where there’s smoke, there’s fire” in the minds of others and you will be misjudged due to your accusations.
