If you have been charged with domestic violence in Los Angeles or anywhere in California under Penal Code section 273.5 or 343(e), you need a top aggressive criminal attorney to represent you. In California, domestic violence or abuse is a serious crime, it could be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor, and can occur between spouses, partners, children, girlfriends and boyfriends, individuals involved in a dating relationship, or by elder abuse. The adverse consequences and complications related to domestic violence are numerous. The help of the best Criminal Attorney specialized in domestic violence is recommended.

Domestic violence or abuse can take place within or outside the home or workplace. The "violence" does not have to result in physical injury. If it does and cuts or major injuries result, a felony charge may be brought against the violator. In California, law enforcement agencies must bring charges against a person allegedly committing an act of domestic violence against another person. The decision to press charges is not the victim's.

Various factors are lookded at to determine the possiblity of a domestic violence situation. These may include verbal abuse, domination or control, and frequent threats, or previous incidents or a pettern of violence.


Domestic violence usually involves the crime of assault. Since this crime usually occurs between family members, factors such as the willingness of the victim to proceed with prosecution, and whether the victim still lives with the defendant, play an important role in how the prosecutor views the case. Although such facts normally do not result in dropping the charges, an experienced attoney may be able to use these factors to your advantage.

What you should know is that the police will typically make an arrest in every domestic violence incident if there is an allegation of any type of battery or assault specially if there is evidence of some visible injury, although very minor. In some instances, the police will make an arrest merely because the victim claims she was pushed or touched against her will.

At our Los Angeles law firm, we carefully evaluate your domestic violence and assault case, looking at all possible defenses:

  1. Does the alleged victim still wish to have the case prosecuted?
  2. Does the victim describe the facts different from what the the police officers have in their report?
  3. Are the injuries so negligible that the crime should be reduced to a lesser charge?
  4. Can the case be dismissed in exchange for your agreement to participate and complete a program?
  5. Should your attorney plead not guilty and take the case to jury trial, so that you may present your side of the story and win the case altogether?

These are only some of the defenses you may have in a domestic violence situation. At the Law Offices of Tony M. Seyfi in Los Angeles, we are committed to winning the case for our clients and we will use state of the art technological research, knowledgeable staff, and experienced investigators to achieve that goal.

Even if charged with an aggrevated domestic violence case, an experienced and caring criminal defense attorney may be able to help you avoid jail time. There are numerous alternative sentenses that can be fashioned to meet your needs. However, if not properly defended, if convicted of a felony in a domestic abuse case, one may be sent to prison for a substantial number of years.

Immigration Consequences of Domestic Violence Conviction

A domestic violence conviction has severe immigration consequences for those who are not U.S. citizens. Even if you are a permanent resident, or if you are in the United States legally on a visa or a work permit, you may be subject to deportation if convicted of a domestic violence charge.

Immigration considers domestic violence an aggravated felony and a crime of moral turpitude and may seek your deportation if it becomes known that you have such conviction. In our Los Angeles Law Offices, a criminal defense lawyer will assist you in dropping a domestic violence charge so that it may not affect your immigration status. Before you plead guilty or no contest to a domestic violence charge, be certain you have done your research on the consequences of your conviction and what you may encounter once you face an immigration agent.
