At San Diego Domestic Violence Lawyers we strive to provide the best representation at an affordable price. There are a lot of attorneys out there that just call themselves criminal defense attorneys. They may also practice other areas of law as well. There is no way that they can even consider calling themselves an expert in the area of domestic violence. Just because someone has handled one case before or knows someone that has handled a case does not make them a domestic violence attorney. We on the other hand, try to strive to know all the new developments in the law and are handling these cases on a weekly basis.
We have handled cases in courthouses all around San Diego including Chula Vista, El Cajon, Vista and downtown
We often get the call of people asking what the difference is between a public defender and a private attorney. I think it is important to explain this concept further so that the general public can understand. For a domestic violence case a lot of work is done right after the arrest. There is talking to the defendant about what happened, asking about the 911 call, talking to any witnesses and talking to the victim if they want to discuss the case. There is also work done with the prosecutor in the case as well before the case is filed. If there is exculpatory information (information that proves innocence) the prosecutor sometimes wants to hear that information and encourages defense attorneys to send that information over. This could be the difference in a decision of whether or not a case is filed.
However, the public defender does not do any of this work. Instead, they are only assigned to the case AFTER it is filed. Therefore if you do not have a private attorney, there will be no work done on your case at all before the first court date.
