Often in domestic violence cases, a judge may grant a temporary restraining order first, with a scheduled final restraining order hearing set within 10 days. The accused person will likely be removed from the home and also may be unable to see his or her children. At the hearing, evidence and testimony is reviewed by a judge to determine whether or not to grant a final restraining order. Depending on the case, and the mindset of the alleged victim, criminal charges might also be filed.

I am a La Mesa domestic violence attorney who can handle all aspects of these types of cases. I view case strategy as more of an art than a science, so I will tailor your defense to fit your situation. I am a skilled negotiator who also can advocate for you in the courtroom.
