When you are accused of a crime involving violence or threats in Ventura County, including allegations of domestic violence, you face harsh penalties including jail time, probation, required classes and other limitations on your freedom.

On Your Side: Bringing Our Experience and Dedication to Your Defense When You Are Charged with Domestic Violence in Ventura County
As a former Deputy Public Defender in Mendocino County, I have extensive experience aggressively representing hundreds of clients charged with crimes of violence, including crimes of domestic violence.
I successfully obtained either dismissals or not guilty verdicts for clients by highlighting the many areas of weakness in such cases, exposing the ulterior motives or lack of credibility of my clients’ accusers, and using expert testimony to support our defense. My domestic violence trial highlights include a not guilty verdict for a client charged with domestic violence in a case involving prior alleged conduct and expert psychiatric testimony. Recently, in private practice in Ventura County, I was able to get the charges against my client dismissed in a criminal threats case. I will do what it takes to get you the results you need and to prevent a charge involving violence, threats or domestic violence from holding you back in your future life.
