Orange County Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer

What Is Domestic Violence?

While physical violence, threats of physical violence, emotional, verbal, or sexual abuse against anyone can be considered a crime under a California law, the state considers these actions taken against a fiancé, spouse, partner, or parent of your child even more serious.

If you have been charged with a crime of domestic violence in Orange County, you could be looking at the potential for very serious penalties, including jail or prison time, fines, and significant damage to both your personal and professional life. For example, you could face restraining orders and even the loss of your parental rights.

Let Me Protect Your Rights & Work Towards a Positive Outcome!

In addition to the above consequences, one of the issues that few individuals consider right away is the impact that a criminal record will have on your future. For professionals working in law enforcement, healthcare, and other areas, a domestic violence conviction could very well be considered a "career killer."

With this in mind, it is absolutely necessary to have an Orange County attorney defending your case. At the Alan Castillo – Attorney at Law, I have the needed in-depth experience and knowledge of the laws and legal system to effectively protect your rights and work towards a positive outcome in your case.

  • Dating partner
  • Individual with whom you have a child

Extensively Exploring All of Your Legal Options & Defense Strategies

It is an unfortunate fact that innocent people get accused of and charged with domestic violence. False allegations can be made by the accuser out of spite, or in order to get an upper hand in divorce or child custody proceedings. In addition to this, the accused may have simply been acting out of self-defense, and may not have been the primary aggressor.
