San Diego Domestic Violence Attorney

Defending Your Rights & Reputation

Accusations of domestic violence can destroy your reputation and put you in a difficult legal situation. Since courts take domestic violation charges very seriously, it is important that you have a skilled attorney representing you and making sure that your side of the story is heard. Emotions run high in these types of cases. It is recommended that you not confront your accuser without having your attorney present. From this point on, any interaction you have with your accuser could impact the outcome of your case. You do not want to say anything in anger that can be used against you later.

At Rodriguez Law Firm, our domestic violence lawyer in San Diego works tirelessly to defend our clients’ rights and freedom. Domestic violence is a serious issue, so it important that the truth of every case be presented to the court. Emotional testimonies can obscure important details, and we work to make sure our clients have the opportunity to fully represent their side of the story.

There’s no time to waste after a domestic violence charge. Call (619) 332-1703 to schedule a free consultation at Rodriguez Law Firm.

Understanding Domestic Violence Law

Some people dismiss charges of domestic violence because they are confident they have done nothing wrong. It is important to secure legal representation even in these cases. Domestic violence is not as cut-and-dry a charge as it may seem. You can be charged with this offense even if you unintentionally caused someone harm. In California, abuse is defined as “intentionally or recklessly causing or attempting to cause bodily injury, or placing another person in reasonable apprehension of imminent serious bodily injury to him or herself, or another.” This means you can be charged for acting in a threatening manner or causing harm through reckless behavior, such as excessive drinking.

Domestic violence charges can be brought forward by anyone who shares residence with you, including:

  • Spouses
  • Fiancés
  • Live-in partners
  • Roommates
  • Siblings
  • Extended relatives
