San Diego Domestic Violence Lawyers


San Diego County Spousal Abuse Attorneys


Prosecutors in San Diego County and throughout Southern California take domestic violence very seriously. Once the police arrive at the scene of a domestic argument and make an arrest, the prosecutor has no choice but to charge the person with a domestic violence offense. In cases involving battery or physical abuse, the perpetrator is often charged with felony assault.
