Clearing Your Name of Domestic Abuse Charges

An argument that gets out of hand, a slap to the face, spanking a child — the definition of domestic violence is very broad. It is easier than ever to be charged with domestic abuse or assault, and hard to get your name cleared in court.

If you’ve been charged with domestic violence, act quickly to protect your freedom, your rights and your reputation. Contact the Los Angeles Law Office of Marc A. Legget. I have more than 23 years of criminal defense experience in cases involving charges of spousal abuse, elder abuse or child abuse in Los Angeles criminal courts. I understand what judges and juries are looking for and what it takes to win.

Don’t let a domestic violence conviction ruin your good name. Call 310-553-2900 or toll free 866-274-0755 for a free initial consultation.

The Unexpected Consequences of a Domestic Violence Conviction

Having a domestic assault or domestic violence conviction on your record has consequences you may never have expected. For example:

  • It can interfere with your professional licensure and with obtaining security clearance if you need it for your job.
  • You may find it more difficult to get a job with a domestic assault conviction on your criminal record.
  • A domestic assault conviction means you cannot get approval to own or carry a firearm.

You can count on me to fight aggressively to keep your record clean and/or get you the best possible outcome. With thorough investigation and depending upon the unique facts of your case, I am often able to get these cases dismissed.

Defense Against Protective Orders and Violations

Every domestic violence case involves the issuance of a protective order. I will defend you in the criminal assault case as well as the hearing before a permanent protective order is issued. If the order is going to be issued, I can often improve your situation by negotiating limitations to the order so you can go about your daily life and see your children.

If you currently have a protective order against you and are now being charged with violating that protective order, you face jail time in Los Angeles County. I defend people on charges of violation of protective orders.
