What to do After A Domestic Violence Arrest

We offer a free case evaluation to discuss your domestic violence charges with you and to address your concerns.

Our defense attorney represents clients in domestic violence cases throughout Solano County and Napa County from our law offices in Fairfield, California.

What to do if you have been arrested for domestic violence?

  • Stay calm and cooperate with law enforcement. Do not try to run or fight, as this will only adversely affect your case.
  • Be polite and respectful.
  • Do not speak to law enforcement without your attorney present. You can provide your contact information and personal information, but do not discuss the incident or your charges with law enforcement, even if they say they just want to ask you some questions. After you are arrested, everything that you say or do may be used against you in court. It is important to remember this and to act accordingly.
  • Contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. You have the right to request a lawyer at any time and to refuse to answer questions until your lawyer is present. Early intervention by a skilled defense lawyer will make all the difference in the specific charges you end up facing as well as the outcome of your criminal case. In some cases, a lawyer may even be able to negotiate with the prosecuting attorney in order to help avoid having formal charges filed at all.
