If you have been charged with domestic violence or child abuse in the San Diego area, you need to obtain competent legal counsel to defend you. Your chances of a favorable outcome in your case depend on it.

Domestic violence is a crime of abuse directed at a spouse, ex-spouse, date or family. It can be physical, emotional or sexual. It can be either a misdemeanor or felony carrying fines and jail sentences depending on the seriousness of the violence.

You should know not to speak with police about the matter. They may take what you say and use it against you in court to obtain your conviction. It is best to let your attorney do the talking. You are urged to contact an experienced San Diego criminal lawyer at The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC who can provide the aggressive defense you need.

Defending Domestic Violence Charges

A domestic violence defense attorney reviews the evidence against his client. He is alert for holes in the prosecution case which may provide grounds for dismissal. If there has been a confession, he examines it to see if the client's constitutional rights were violated and if so the confession is inadmissible in court. When it is to the client's advantage, the attorney looks for ways to reduce the charges and penalties.

In court, the attorney objects to improper and prejudicial evidence offered by the government and closely questions government witnesses. He then presents his client's case persuasively to the court and jury to win acquittal.
