Bakersfield Domestic Violence Lawyer

Domestic violence is any act of violence—or threat of violence—committed by one member of a household against another. Domestic violence can occur between married spouses, domestic partners, boyfriends and girlfriends, or parents and children. It can be a constant cycle of abuse or a single violent event. If you are facing domestic violence charges in Bakersfield, contact a Bakersfield criminal attorney immediately.

Domestic violence cases are different from many other criminal cases. Once a person makes allegations of domestic violence against another, that person cannot change his or her mind and drop charges later on. Because many real domestic violence victims later recant out of fear, district prosecutors have the right to proceed with trial no matter what.

Unfortunately, people are falsely accused of domestic violence every day. Family lawyers see this happen all the time, when a vindictive spouse makes accusations in an attempt to gain an advantage in a custody battle. If you are convicted of domestic violence, you could lose all custodial rights to your children forever. In this situation, you need a Bakersfield criminal attorney who is not afraid to aggressively defend your freedom.
