Redding Domestic Violence Lawyer

Shasta County Domestic Abuse Defense Attorney

If you are accused of domestic violence, you could be kicked out of your home and you could lose your child custody or visitation rights. If you are convicted, it will be entered into your record and you could go to jail.

Making your situation even worse, when it comes to domestic violence many in our community are predisposed to believe the allegations of an accuser. Without strong and effective legal representation, you could lose your rights and your freedom.

Experienced Redding Domestic Violence Attorney

I am Joe Gazzigli, an experienced criminal defense attorney. I have represented people in cases involving domestic violence, violations of restraining orders, assault and other alleged crimes for more than 35 years. In my criminal defense work, I have learned that there is more than one side to every story. In fact, many domestic violence accusations arise when one spouse or partner tries to gain an advantage in a divorce or custody dispute.

When you hire me to represent you, I will work tenaciously to defend your rights and freedom. To tell your story, I will learn about what happened in the period leading up to your arrest. I will review the motives of the accuser. I will take time to understand the context of the event and what led to your arrest. Joe Gazzigli, Attorney at Law will fight for you at all stages of the legal process.

Mitigation Strategies

In some domestic violence cases, there may be some substance to the allegations, especially if alcohol or drug abuse played a role in the alleged altercation. Participation in an alcohol treatment program or anger management class can go a long way toward mitigating any adverse consequences. If you need and want this kind of help, my firm can assist you in finding appropriate treatment resources.

It may be possible to get a domestic violence charge reduced to a misdemeanor and eventually expunged. Whatever your situation, I will work to minimize any penalties you may incur, seeking the best possible outcome for you.

Stalking and Cyberstalking

A domestic violence or assault charge does not have to involve actual physical contact. Stalking, cyberstalking and behavior the complainant sees as threatening can result in a criminal charge. I have experience in these types of cases, and my firm will defend your rights and freedom.
