Los Angeles Domestic Violence Information Center
One in four women and one in seven men will experience physical violence by their intimate partner at some point during their lifetimes.
But domestic violence is not limited to physical abuse. Domestic violence can include emotional abuse, financial abuse, coercive control, and more.
If you're experiencing abuse, it's important to seek immediate assistance from a lawyer, or law enforcement if necessary.
California's Domestic Violence Prevention Act provides domestic violence victims with immediate legal protection in the form of restraining orders and other injunctions against abusers.
Domestic violence can also have wide ranging legal effects on divorce, child custody, and spousal support.
Domestic Violence Solutions That Respond To Your Individual Needs With Legal & Emotional Intelligence
Escaping from domestic abuse is one of the most traumatic things a person can endure. The right support team is critical.
With both fierce advocacy and a calming spirit, we guide clients through some of the most difficult and sensitive times in their lives. We do this with first-class litigation and negotiation skills along with emotional intelligence that many other attorneys lack.
When we go to court to request a domestic violence restraining order, we know what's at stake. We unleash a proactive strategy and prepare to win.
Our goal is to protect you, your family, and your personal finances with sensitivity and compassion.
During our initial consultation, we'll ask a series of questions and listen to your unique story to evaluate your case and begin creating a custom strategy to suit your individual needs.
