On the outskirts of the San Fernando Valley, the Santa Clarita Courthouse hears a wide variety of domestic violence cases on a regular basis and our firm has defended many, which prompted us to create this post with tips on what to look for when researching/choosing the best criminal defense attorney in Santa Clarita.

First and foremost, domestic violence cases are unique and require not only deep knowledge in the laws surrounding domestic violence but also true experience in defending cases based on a plethora of circumstances. Our firm has handled hundreds of domestic violence cases not only in Santa Clarita, but throughout Southern California (Van Nuys, Los Angeles, Orange County, etc.) and experience is what you should look for first.

Secondly, after having a consultation with a criminal defense firm, how do you feel about them personally? Do you get the feeling they’re good people and knowledgeable enough to present the best defense possible? Those things are very important.

The reality is that domestic violence charges are serious and, sadly enough, many times break up families. The best criminal defense attorney will fight the charges you’re facing but also push towards solutions that are best for the family as a whole.
