At Greenberg & Nguyen we represent victims of domestic violence as well as those accused of committing domestic violence.

Are You the Victim of Domestic Violence?

Please contact us immediately if a member of your household or someone you have a dating relationship with has physically harmed you or is threatened to cause you physical harm. We can immediately petition the court for a restraining order that will remove that person from the home and prevent him or her from coming near you, calling you, contacting you, or coming anywhere near you wherever you might be.

Have You Been Accused of Domestic Violence?

Sadly, false accusations of domestic violence or spousal abuse are common techniques for gaining advantage in divorce and other family law disputes.

If you have been arrested for domestic violence, we can represent you at the restraining order hearing in family court. It is imperative to be represented by an attorney at this hearing to protect your constitutional rights. Without legal representation, anything you say can be used against you in your criminal case. Standing alone, without counsel is a recipe for disaster as, of course, you will want to tell your side of the story. Unfortunately, telling your side of the story will often give the police, the District Attorney and the prosecuting team lots of ammunition that can be used against you. Moreover, without counsel, it is likely that you will have a restraining order issued against you. Domestic Violence is not only a crime, it is a politically sensitive issue where the system almost always comes down HARD on those arrested for Domestic Violence.
