Irvine Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

Orange County Criminal Attorney Committed to Your Defense

The courts in Irvine as well as in the rest of southern California take domestic violence cases very seriously. Their job is to ensure the protection of household members, including children, which is why those convicted of domestic violence crimes are punished severely. If you've been charged with any type of domestic violence offense in Irvine, you may be facing an array of penalties that could heavily impact your life. Getting skilled legal help is a must in this situation as you will often be facing an uphill battle in the courts due to the bias against anyone accused of this crime.

The Law Office of Frances Prizzia provides competent legal representation that is based on the premise that everyone deserves the best possible defense. You are innocent until proven guilty; our firm will thoroughly investigate the facts and circumstances of your case to identify any flaws, mistakes, and inconsistencies that can be used on your behalf. Domestic violence cases are often based on exaggerated or false allegations that may be part of a domestic breakup, divorce, or child custody dispute. You can rest assured that Attorney Prizzia will explore every legal avenue and pursue all measures to build an effective defense in your case.

Domestic Violence Cases in Irvine

Domestic violence occurs between household members, such as spouses, ex-spouses, couples living together, unmarried parents who share a child, and those involved in intimate relationships. Domestic offenses can take many forms, from physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and abuse of elders and children.

Crimes associated with domestic violence include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Stalking
  • Harassment

You can be charged with domestic assault even when no injuries have occurred or are visible. Even in cases where the alleged victim does not wish to press charges, the prosecutor on the case can move forward against you. That is why you need a strong legal advocate on your side as soon as possible after an arrest.

If you are convicted of a domestic violence offense, the penalties imposed include jail time, heavy fines, community service, a 52-week counseling program, and you will likely be subject to a restraining order prohibiting you from contacting the victim.
