Domestic Violence There's No Alternative

Huntington Beach Domestic Violence Attorney

Huntington Beach Domestic Violence occurs when someone is abused through the use of force, violence or threat. Domestic Laws are somewhat technical and are narrowed down by specific offenses which are described in detail below.

The main theme connecting these cases however, is that the abuse must occur between members who are related, who are in a relationship, or are living together for the case to be regarded as a domestic case.

As an example, current spouses, former spouses, ex partners, parents of children, a live in partner, or an elder living in the home, are just some of the victims or defendants covered in these cases. Child abuse is also covered in cases of domestic abuse.

Penalties for Huntington Beach Domestic Abuse

This varies based on the specific crime committed. Most abusers will however need to enroll in a batterer’s class that is regulated by the state of California. Other factors that affect sentencing include defendant’s prior run-ins with the law, aggravating circumstances of injury, the age of the victim, and also when a weapon was used.

Types of Huntington Beach Domestic Abuse

California Penal Code 273.5 is also known as corporal injury and it happens when there’s gross violence or injury used.

California Penal Code 243 e1 is battery that happens on a domestic partner. The injuries could be as minor as a bruise or be more serious. The prosecution will look at police reports, pictures, and testimonies from eyewitnesses to help prosecute the case.

California Penal Code 273D or Child Abuse happens when a minor becomes victim to physical abuse.

The following could be considered an example of domestic violence:

Brady has been living with his girlfriend, Tina, in Huntington Beach for 4 years. They share bank accounts, an apartment, as well as a car. One day, Brady and Tina get into a very loud argument outside their apartment. Brady turns to leave when Tina grabs a small flower pot and throws it at Brady, narrowly missing his head. Brady picks up the flower pot and throws it back at Tina, but it hits her in the face. The neighbors call the Huntington Beach police and both Brady and Tina are arrested for domestic violence. Brady is charged with violating PC 273.5 and Tina is charged with violating PC 243(e)(1).

    "Randy is the obvious choice!"
    Randy worked tirelessly for over two years to have my case dismissed and I can’t thank him enough for everything that he did for me.
    Best Criminal Defense Attorney"
    I could not be more grateful or complimentary of how Randy handled my case, as well as the easy communication and genuine care for my well-being. I could not recommend Randy more.
    "An Attorney I Could Trust"
    I called to inquire about a case I was facing, this was one of the many attorneys I was speaking with during a free consult about my next steps. The future was looking more and more alarming as the implications of what I was facing were becoming clear. Halfway through explaining my situation, he interrupted me and asked some basic information, put me on hold for one second and came back telling me he had called around and found out that my case was not proceeding. Four other attorneys I had spoken to did not do this, and in fact had used scare tactics and worst case scenarios to try and hard sell me into signing a retainer. (unfortunately, the evening before I HAD with another attorney signed a retainer but thats for another review) Although I did not need to retain the services of this office, I believe that single action speaks worlds about the integrity, helpfulness, intelligence and capabilities of this office. In a world that is so difficult for the uninitiated, such as the legal system, it seems people are taking advantage of you at every turn. It was a welcome and uplifting experience to see the opposite of that with this law office and I am so grateful I was able to find them and know I could call them if anything were to ever happen to me later in life and know I could trust this team.
    "Caring and Genuine Attorney"
    I called the office and right off the bat, I was super impressed at how much help I was receiving without even meeting in person. Chris (the guy who answered my call) is extremely nice and he explains everything so well. He told me how he used to work at the courts for many years (that gave me relief that he knew what he was talking about). Randy (the attorney) is delightful as well and put my worries to rest with his expertise and knowledge. You can tell by his demeanor and how passionate he speaks, that he is genuine and he cares about his clients. This office handles everything from DUI cases to just about anything criminal related.
    Former Client
    "Glad I had Randy to guide me through it."
    I had the unfortunate experience of being too drunk one night in DTF which led to a Drunk in Public charge. I was able to hire Randy after looking online for a good lawyer. I ended up paying about $3,500 for his services and he got the case dismissed. It was an easy process. It was my first time getting in trouble with the law, and I am glad I had Randy and Chris there to guide me through.
    "Trustworthy, honest, hard working and caring attorney."
    If anyone needs a trustworthy, honest, hard working and caring attorney, it’s without any doubt, Mr. Randy Collins. I have had many contacts throughout my lifetime, and I have never ran into such a professional in the law field. He’s also a very caring individual that listens to the client and shows great respect.
    "Giving Randy a shot was the best choice."
    Oh man, I thank my lucky stars for attorney Randy and his team. I was able to get a great deal and the best advice!
    "Handled my case in record time with the best possible outcome."
    Randy is awesome! I called so many attorneys and in all honesty he is such an incredible person. All of his office staff is friendly, professional and knowledgeable. He really cares about the welfare of his clients and takes time to discuss your needs in person. I highly recommend him. He handled my case in record time with the best possible outcome.
