Domestic Violence Charges in Orange County

If the police show up at your door after getting a complaint of domestic violence, someone is going to be arrested. If you are placed in custody over a criminal domestic violence charge, California law states that you cannot be released on your own recognizance. Bail has to be posted and we will work to get the bail reduced to a reasonable amount in securing your freedom.

Once bail is set and paid, law enforcement will try to secure a protective order from a judge. Attorney David E. Swanson will work hard to prevent the order from being issued or have it modified so you can return home and not be forced to live in a motel or stay at a friend’s house.

As a Certified Specialist in Criminal Law by The State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization, Mr. Swanson has an extensive amount of experience in trying domestic violence cases. Not only will he work with the individual charged, he will also communicate with the victim to either get the charges dropped or find some form of resolution. Many times, a domestic violence charge comes from two people in a committed relationship who just let an argument get out of hand. While it is rare for the prosecutor to allow the victim to decide whether the case goes forward, it does happen. You need experience on your side.
