San Diego, California, Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer
At the Law Office of Elliott Kanter, we fully understand how serious domestic abuse is. Millions of innocent people are injured or lose their lives every year in the United States because of assault by a person in their family or with whom they have a relationship. A criminal charge of domestic violence such as spousal abuse heightens tensions and emotions for all parties and often has a severe impact on everyone involved. But not all charges are unwarranted, and when that happens, a future can be wrongly destroyed far too easily.
