Defense of Domestic Violence Cases
Generally speaking, California has a “no-drop” policy regarding domestic violence cases. This means that the state is unwilling to drop the charges, even when the alleged victim attempts to retract the complaint that led to the arrest. This policy makes defense of domestic violence charges even more difficult.
The Law Offices of Jonathan Franklin is an experienced criminal defense law firm. We use the law and our abilities to achieve results in domestic violence and other criminal cases. We represent clients accused of domestic violence and abuse both before and after a restraining order is issued.
Our experience shows that in domestic violence and assault cases, the facts can often be at variance with the substance of the complaint. We begin each case with a thorough investigation of the facts. When possible, we interview witnesses and family members to gain additional insights into the events leading up to the arrest.
Our goal is to present a strong and vigorous defense of your rights in order to obtain the best outcome possible, through a dismissal of charges, victory at trial, reduced charges, or a plea bargain with mitigated penalties.
