The law recognizes domestic violence as taking on different forms including but not limited to bodily harm and injury, sexual assault and emotional abuse through stalking and threats.

Representation for Falsely Accused Persons
Since opening the doors of our practice, we have also encountered clients who have been falsely accused of domestic violence as a ploy to sway the outcome of divorce and custody proceedings. At the Law Offices of J. Scott Bennett, we are diligent and zealous advocates of truth and justice and will commit every available resource to help you in fighting off these false allegations.
If you feel threatened and at risk of domestic violence or are a survivor of the same, our team will help you obtain a domestic violence restraining order. When local law enforcers are called to your premises following a domestic disturbance, emergency protective orders or a temporary restraining order.
Our lawyers will help you file and argue out your case before a judge to obtain a domestic violence restraining order which offers long-lasting protection. Our lawyers will help prove your eligibility for a restraining order by establishing before the courts the nature of your relationship with the accused as well as tabling evidence of domestic violence meted against you and/ or threats to do so.
According to California law, violation of domestic restraining orders can be treated as a misdemeanor, a contempt of court or a felony. Mr. Bennett will assist and guide you with understanding the fine details of the restraining order filed against you. Again, because it is not uncommon to have restraining orders sought under false pretense, we also assist our clients in preparing a proper defense against these improper orders.
