One of the most abused (no pun intended) charges is PC647. Often my clients were involved in a controlled argument, or an escalated domestic event, the police arrive and then the tragedy begins. When officers are called to respond to alleged domestic violence it is very unlikely that no one will be arrested. The officers are worried about liability and accountability if they take no action. As a result of this, I have represented dozens and dozens of people arrested for felony domestic violence (Bail of $50,000) for virtually no, or actually no, physical contact of any kind. People’s whole lives become uprooted while temporary protective orders are issued by the courts, and couples are split up by no-contact mandates. These cases are very sensitive and require total understanding of the system and agencies involved. Dignity Law Group has successfully handled these types of cases throughout Los Angeles County.
