The laws regarding domestic violence can be overwhelming. You will need a law firm with extensive experience to help you when you are facing charges. Regardless of whether misdemeanor or felony charges are filed, any domestic violence charge can be devastating to you and your family.
You will be facing a range of potential consequences, including jail time, a restraining order, and on-going counseling based upon the severity of the charges facing you. In addition, a domestic violence conviction carries serious immigration consequences and impacts your right to own a firearm. Andrian & Gallenson’s job is to avoid all of these by providing you with over 76 years of experience from the best criminal defense team in Sonoma County.
If you have been arrested or served with a restraining order, our team will carefully advise you on the best course of action to take and the pitfalls to avoid. Contact us immediately upon receiving the order so that we can make sure that all steps are taken to protect your rights. In any case, you should never contact the protected person named in a restraining order, even if they initiate the contact.
Many District Attorneys’ offices are aggressively prosecuting domestic violence cases and some of them have domestic violence units set up to specifically handle them. This is one more reason to choose a criminal defense attorney with extensive experience with these types of cases.
