There are a number of domestic abuse allegations that can be prosecuted in Los Angeles, California, and our law firm is adept at handling each type with a personal approach to delivering results for our client’s unique needs. It is important to understand that although assault, battery, threats, and intimidation are all illegal, and prosecuted as such, they are taken much more seriously when the alleged victim is a spouse, cohabitant, dating partner, or parent of the offender’s child.

These extenuating circumstances disrupt the lives of everyone involved, and the physical and emotional toll it takes on the lives of our clients must be rectified through the legal process to empower each individual.
