If you have been charged with making criminal threats, which can arise from a domestic dispute with a spouse or significant other, you are facing a greater level of prosecutorial zeal. Domestic violence and related offenses have been singled out by district attorneys throughout California for special prosecution. Many cases of domestic violence and threatening conduct are prosecuted as felonies and the matters are rarely dismissed — even when the alleged victim wishes to drop charges. When police are called to the scene of a domestic disturbance in Orange County and other Southern California communities, an arrest is often automatic.
“I am proud to remain personally accessible to my clients throughout the case. I return phone calls and e-mails promptly, including evenings and weekends. I promise to represent you with skill, empathy and candor, and I have a record of success to back up that promise.” Ron Cordova
In Orange County, even non-felony domestic violence charges are handled in special proceedings, which often require the defendant to appear personally in court.
Criminal defense lawyer Ron Cordova has more than four decades of criminal law experience representing clients charged with misdemeanors and felonies related to domestic violence. With four years of experience as a deputy district attorney followed by more than 40 years of criminal defense practice, Ron has handled hundreds of domestic violence cases.
The Strongest Domestic Abuse Defense If The Evidence Is Against You
Never assume that you will be found guilty of a crime, no matter how strongly the evidence against you appears to be stacked. There is a difference between being charged with an offense and being guilty of a crime.
It is not always in the prosecutor’s interest to send criminal defendants to jail. Options that do not include jail time are available. While a jail sentence is a possibility, it is often not the necessary consequence. Ron Cordova will explain the misdemeanor and felony process during your initial free consultation. The maximum sentence looks bad on paper, but it doesn’t have to be the likely outcome when you are represented by an experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney. Most prosecutors will listen to offers of probation, anger management courses and domestic violence education programs, with a conviction set aside upon successful completion.
