Northern California Domestic Violence Lawyer
Anyone involved in domestic violence should understand the legal issues involved. Domestic violence cases usually involve restraining orders or orders of protection. First, however, police often issue a temporary Emergency Protective Order (EPO).
When the case goes to court, they may issue a more formal protective order. Depending on the skill and experience of your attorney, you could end up either with or without a restraining order, under Section 136.2, P.C. that prevents one person from coming within a specified distance of the other person.
Leon J. Mezzetti, Jr. can take either side of domestic violence claims. As part of our criminal defense practice, we defend victims of domestic violence as well as those who are fighting domestic violence accusations.
