Self Defense There's No Alternative

Lawyers for Self-Defense in Orange County

We Can Build an Effective Legal Strategy for You

Domestic violence incidents are far more common than many would like to admit, and it is fairly easy for victims to be charged with committing the offense. There are a number of reasons why this may happen: Some people become entrapped in their loved one’s jealous actions, while others may fall victim to haphazard police work that leads authorities to the wrong conclusions.

Regardless of the reason, if you want to know how you can claim self-defense to help you avoid a wrongful domestic violence conviction, speaking with an attorney can help. Criminal cases involving physical relationship abuse are very complex and will require an experienced self-defense lawyer with in-depth knowledge of your state’s laws to properly mount a claim.

When Self-Defense is Justified

The self-defense domestic violence concept is one that is regularly misunderstood. Although Americans would generally accept that a person should be allowed to protect themselves from harm, there are very specific rules provided by each state.

Although every state allows violent crime defendants to claim self-defense, the rules that determine whether or not a person acted in self-defense vary.

Self-defense claims are fairly common, and the rules about the situations in which a person can defend themselves and the amount of force they are allowed to use can be complicated. Everything can be made much simpler with the advice of a competent local attorney.

Attorney Randy Collins has successfully obtained numerous not guilty verdicts for domestic violence defendants in Orange County that thought their cases were hopeless. Call (844) 807-8180 to take advantage of a free consultation and get the help you need.

Why Courts Reject These Claims

In general, prosecutors will often scoff at self-defense in domestic violence cases during every stage of the proceeding. Why is debatable, but there are a lot of people who try to use this strategy when it does not apply.

This can make it much more difficult for real victims facing charges to prove that they are innocent. Although judges and juries are instructed to concentrate on the facts, these types of cases affect people emotionally. If it appears as though an attacker is pretending to be a victim, the courts are likely to come down very hard on them.

    My son had gotten into some trouble, so thankfully we found Mr. Collins and his paralegal Chris. Every time I called the office, Chris or Mr. Collins guided me through every step and always helped me understand. The legal system is very complicated! But with their assistance and expertise, I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my son's case.

    "Case Dismissed"
    Case dismissed! I got my girlfriend an attorney to help clear up a warrant she had as well as an outstanding case. The warrant was three years old and she skipped out on court. Randy got case dismissed and warrant is now gone. Only took him one week to accomplish this! Thanks for your help Randy Collins!
