Accused of Domestic Violence?

January 6th, 2010

Domestic Violence arrests are on the increase.  As any experienced police officer knows, the holidays bring a rise in family violence calls.  And, California law encourages an arrest of all suspected Domestic Violence offenders, and requires an arrest if probable cause exists to support an arrest.

Domestic Violence has the highest repeat rate of any crime.  Many victims, although willing to make a report of Domestic Violence, legitimately or otherwise, in a rage of anger, refuse to give evidence against a partner in a criminal prosecution.

Conviction for a Domestic Violence or a Domestic Violence related offense can have very serious consequences for even the first time offender including jail time, long term formal probation, long term anger management counseling, a presumption against custody in Family Court child custody proceedings, a criminal record, and other consequences. In order to minimize the consequences of a Domestic Violence arrest contact Bernard P. Bray (408) 292-9700.

Once filed, Domestic Violence cases are aggressively prosecuted in California and you should only be represented by an experienced attorney prepared to fight your case.  I have 26 years of experience handling Domestic Violence cases.  They are difficult cases oftentimes presenting many complex issues.  However, there is a lot that an attorney can do for a client and their family brought into court facing a Domestic Violence case.

Domestic Violence and Domestic Violence related charges can result from even the simple use of any type of force on the person of a spouse, significant other, child, or one with whom an accused has been involved in a dating relationship.  If you or a loved one have been arrested for Domestic Violence, protect yourself to the fullest extent possible, contact San Jose Criminal Defense Attorney Bernard P. Bray and learn your options before you go to court.  It can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
