DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Domestic Violence Felony Assault: A man retained me after other lawyers asked him if his wife would say she "ran into a door. " He didn't want his wife to lie. He treasured his marriage and family. He was frightened by the injury he caused. He wanted to control his anger. He hoped to save his marriage and himself. We got him into domestic violence treatment and negotiated a favorable resolution.

Domestic Violence: A prosecutor proceeded to trial without a complaining witness to testify against my client.  The court sustained many of our objections to the evidence.  The court dismissed the charge when the prosecution finished presenting its evidence.

Domestic Violence Felony Assault: The client retained me after he was convicted. His trial lawyer had misplaced his file before trial and lost crucial evidence he wanted to present at trial. We located the investigator, obtained the evidence again, and persuaded the court to vacate the jury's verdict and grant a new trial based on ineffective assistance of counsel.

Domestic Violence/Review and Reduction of Sentences: The Legislature passed a bill permitting lower sentences for victims of abuse who assault or kill their abusers. It passed a special section permitting the parole board to review the sentences of those already in prison for such offenses. I represented several men who had killed their abusive fathers, helping them obtain an earlier parole and release.
