Redlands Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

When a couple is having marital problems, the tension can erupt into shouting matches. At those times, people can say or do things they don’t mean. Occasionally, one party will make accusations that are simply not true – including the claim that the other party was violent or threatened violence. When that happens, a domestic violence charge can be filed by either the person who claims to be the victim, or by the police department.

At Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP we know that domestic violence can be a difficult charge to either prove or disprove. Often, the only two people who know exactly what happened are the two people involved in the dispute. In those instances, an experienced Redlands domestic violence defense attorney may be the only person who can defend against those false charges. Whether your goal is to save your relationship, or stay out of jail, Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP can provide you with advice you need and experience you can rely on. Our law firm can make a stand with you and protect your best interests.

Why Experience Matters when Facing Domestic Violence Charges

When someone is charged with domestic violence, there are a number of issues that hang in the balance and several rights which could be in jeopardy. Some of the disputes are related to family law and some are criminal defense issues. At Milligan, Beswick, Levine & Knox LLP, our Redlands domestic violence defense lawyers consider all of the possible consequences and work diligently to avoid negative outcomes for you and your family.

Our law firm has significant experience with the following types of issues:

  • Child custody and visitation: When a domestic violence charge is made, it can impact a parent’s access to their children and the ability to raise their children. We will work diligently to protect your rights as a parent, grandparent or stepparent.

  • Personal freedom: A restraining order can impact your ability to own firearms or to hold a job that requires a security clearance. We are fully committed to fighting for your rights and personal freedom.

  • Reconciliation: Not all domestic violence charges end up in divorce or a parting of ways. When there are misunderstandings and a couple desires reconciliation, our law firm can provide the legal guidance and advice that is needed.

  • Restraining orders or orders for protection: There are two sides to every story. At our law firm we can fight against unreasonable restraining orders that could prevent the restrained person from having child custody and visitation rights.
