David Pisarra January 3, 2012 Domestic Violence Defense For someone who is being accused of Domestic Violence, the defenses are difficult to come by, because Domestic Violence is defined so broadly these days. The best defense is to prevent the allegation in the first place, unfortunately that often puts a man in a difficult and uncomfortable position of having to either charge his partner with domestic abuse first, or leave the home. Leaving the home means that he is giving up his children though, and that is not easy for most men. If you’ve been charged with Domestic Violence or Spousal Abuse in Los Angeles County, you have some defenses such as Self Defense, Primary Aggressor and Toxic Environment, but they are hard to prove and you should not attempt to do so without a Domestic Violence Defense Attorney. We handle cases in Los Angeles County, Ventura County, and Orange County.
