Helping You Resolve Domestic Violence Charges

Few criminal defense problems are as complex or emotionally charged as domestic violence charges. At the Law Office of Thomas F. McKenna, in Walnut Creek, California, I can help you resolve domestic violence or battery charges on favorable terms.

I represent people of all ages, including both adults and juveniles, facing criminal charges for domestic violence in such situations as the following:

  • Arrests at home for domestic assault involving any visible sign of injury
  • Violation of a domestic violence restraining order through contact with the person protected, including phone calls, emails, or harassing or stalking behavior
  • Failure to comply with the child support or maintenance obligations set forth in a domestic violence restraining order

What You Stand To Lose With A Conviction

A charge of domestic assault, whether originated by an arresting officer or by a partner or family member, can lead to a wide range of problems outside the risk of a misdemeanor or felony conviction. You can lose your right to own or possess a firearm while the restraining order is in effect. You will be severely disadvantaged in any present or future family court child custody or visitation disputes. Depending on your occupation, you may encounter trouble with state licensing authorities.

My experience with domestic violence issues enables me to address the full range of personal, professional and legal consequences that you might face if arrested for assault or violation of a restraining order.
