Even well to do Irvine residents get involved in domestic violence incidents. This can be especially serious if the person charged needs to be licensed to do their job, like a Doctor, Lawyer, Real Estate Agent or Securities broker. They may lose their license and therefore their ability to work.

Domestic Violence may be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor under penal code section 273.5 or penal code section 243(e)(1). These offenses carry up to one year in jail if filed as a misdemeanor and up to three years in prison if filed as a felony.

Irvine Domestic Violence Attorney Will Bruzzo has managed to stop many domestic violence cases from being filed by speaking to the District Attorney prior to them filing the case. This may involve getting the victim to sign a declaration indicating that any physical contact was incidental and/or the victim does not want the case pursued for any reason.

If the case does end up in court Irvine Domestic Violence Attorney Will Bruzzo can persuade the District Attorney to dismiss the case using the same declaration from the victim or attack the credibility of the victim.

Irvine Domestic Violence Attorney Will Bruzzo has been able to get cases dismissed by demonstrating that the domestic violence incident actually occurred because both parties were hitting each other. This is called mutual combat and can result in the case getting dismissed on the grounds that both parties are at fault. Contact the Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo for any domestic violence case at (714) 547-4636.
