Domestic violence: explosive, yes, and often complex, too

When police in Pleasanton or anywhere else in Alameda County and across the Bay Area are called to a home, apartment building or other dwelling in response to a domestic violence call, they know one thing for sure at the outset.

And that is to reserve judgment until they obtain a full and accurate picture of what they reasonably think they are seeing and being asked to intervene in.

Here's why, in a nutshell: Domestic violence can be a very complex matter, involving as it does heightened human emotions and, often, conflicting versions of what just happened and is currently going on.

We fully note that complexity at The Law Office of John W. Noonan in Pleasanton, with Mr. Noonan having represented clients in sensitive and sometimes complicated domestic abuse matters for many years.

Many things can be -- and are -- said about domestic violence, with this being one of them: things sometimes aren't what they might initially seem to be. Indeed, an alleged abuser might be engaged in violence in precisely the manner that a person who has called police states is the case. Alternatively, though, and has been seen many times in family abuse matters, an alleged claim of violence is driven by family law reasons focused upon child custody and related matters.

Whatever the case, a person who is accused of domestic violence or who has been issued a restraining order unquestionably needs timely and knowledge legal help aimed at minimizing adverse consequences.

That is what we do at our law firm, namely, advocate diligently on behalf of all our clients needing help during a real time of need.

Accusations of domestic violence are very serious matters. A proven criminal defense attorney can help educate a client and provide legal representation that unwaveringly seeks to promote his or her best interests.
