Have you or your child been abused and you want help seeking a DVTRO (domestic violence temporary restraining order)? Or have you been the one accused of the abuse? Either way, you will want to talk to an experienced and knowledgeable family law attorney who can help you with your situation. Aggressive, swift, and correct action is exactly what’s necessary when it comes to getting or defending against a DVTRO.
If you or your child is the victim
The most important thing to do is to call 911 as soon as possible if domestic violence has occurred. You can request an emergency restraining order against the attacker from the police right at the scene. Emergency restraining orders are usually good for several days. You should talk to a domestic violence attorney as soon as possible about your options at this point. Sooner is ALWAYS better than later. Lilian is familiar with the process of obtaining restraining orders. She can go to court on your behalf (sometimes without any notice to the attacker) and help you get a temporary or permanent restraining order against the person that has hurt you or your child. For longer term restraining orders, you must present evidence of your abuse, show you fear continued abuse, and possible be subject to questioning in court. If your child is being abused by the other parent, visitation, child custody, and child support can all be affected in
order to protect the child.
As a victim, you not only need legal help and advice, you need encouragement and support. Lilian is experienced and skilled in helping victims of domestic violence and can be a powerful and agresssive advocate on their behalf.

If you are accused of domestic violence
As an accused, you have rights! Unfortunately, bitter separations and custody disputes often result in false and unsubstantiated accusations just to gain an advantage. If you are innocent, it’s important you take the opportunity to defend yourself — if you do nothing, you will likely face a negative result. If you are currently in a custody/visitation dispute with your children, it is especially important you seek the assistance of an experienced lawyer knowledgeable in the area of domestic violence defense, as any failure to defend yourself properly could result in huge consequences in your ability to see your kids in the future. Lilian can vigorously defend you and fight for your rights. Contact her today at (310) 920-5810 or to schedule a free, no-obligation, and confidential consultation.
