For more than 35 years, California Criminal Defense Attorney Kenneth L. Schreiber has been rigorously defending clients accused of a wide-variety of crimes.

Over the years defending clients against domestic violence charges in Southern California, Mr. Schreiber has seen many changes in the law. Some of these changes have been beneficial but many of the changes have created more trouble and have, often, contributed to a couple or family’s misfortune. Mr. Schreiber knows that many people who are accused of domestic violence are often uncertain of the exact charges they face or the penalties that await them.

“Domestic violence” is not a specific crime. Instead, it is added to assault, battery or other offense. Attaching “domestic violence” to a charge indicates that the accused will be facing a very particular set of obstacles.

Domestic violence arrests in Orange County require a skilled defense attorney

Domestic violence in California—and especially in Orange County—creates significant challenges for the accused:

  • Bail is often very high even though the charge is most often a misdemeanor: $25,000. This means, very likely, if you are arrested, you will spend time in jail.
  • Even if the accuser drops charges, police and prosecutors are required to pursue the case.
  • A protection order may be issued. These can prevent you from visiting your home, your children, and will impose other severe limitations on your liberty. Violating the order has brutal consequences.
  • You may be required to attend anger management classes and pay massive fines. You may not be able to see your spouse or partner until the classes are completed.
  • If you are involved in a divorce, accusations of domestic violence can significantly influence custody and support issues. In some cases, false accusations are strategically made to influence divorce proceedings.

Your case is unique and you deserve legal counsel that is specifically tailored for your circumstances. When you contact Domestic Violence Attorney Kenneth L. Schreiber, you will get answers to all of your questions and the legal guidance you need. Call 949-852-0411 as soon as possible.
