Qualified Help for Domestic Violence Victims

With decades of experience focused solely on family law, our legal team is experienced in handling matters related to domestic violence cases. If you have been seriously threatened or injured by a significant other, someone with whom you share a child, or a blood relative, we are here to help you seek the protection you need.

The ways in which our attorneys can help domestic violence victims include:

  • Taking the necessary steps to protect your children
  • Applying for a court order to protect you from abuse, harassment, and threats of violence
  • Applying for a court order to prevent a person from coming near or entering your home

Where Do I Get a Restraining Order in Murrieta?

If you are a victim of domestic abuse, you have options. Call 9-1-1 if you are in immediate danger of domestic violence and an officer can help you get an emergency protective order. If you are looking to prevent future violence from a member of your household, then you can file for a restraining order.

Once you get a restraining order, your abuser will be ordered to:

  • Move out of your home (if they currently live with you)
  • Stay away from you and your children
  • Stay away from your home and place of work, as well as your kids' schools
  • No longer contact you in any way

Our Murrieta domestic violence attorneys can help you file for a restraining order in Riverside County.

Fighting for Those Falsely Accused

Quite often, individuals are falsely accused of domestic violence. We have seen this occur in situations where one party is trying to manipulate the outcome of certain events, such as divorce proceedings or child custody disputes. If you have been wrongly accused of domestic violence, our legal team can help you defend your rights and reputation.

Our lawyers can help defend you in several ways, which may include:

  • Establishing that you did not commit the act
  • Discovering inconsistencies in the alleged victim’s story
  • Demonstrating that you were not the initial aggressor, but acted in self-defense
  • Establishing the alleged victim has manipulated the court system
