At Bours & Lucero, LLC, we apply our decades of experience to assist clients facing complex family law, criminal or bankruptcy cases.
Crafting A Legal Strategy To Protect Your Rights And Interests
Our attorneys recognize the challenges you face. We actively involve you in your case by providing clear explanations of the law and how it applies to your situation. By doing this, we strive to help you understand the status of your case and make informed decisions.
In many cases, a settlement may provide the best option for a quick and effective resolution. However, when this is not an option or does not suit your interests, we are not afraid to fight for your rights in the courtroom.
Covid-19 And Domestic Violence Arrests
Since the Covid-19 Pandemic has forced spouses, domestic partners, boyfriends and girlfriends into close quarters or in quarantine, arrests for domestic violence have escalated. Police are generally required to arrest someone if they investigate an assault and there is evidence of an actual injury as minor as a red mark, a bruise or a cut. Even if there is no arrest, the “victim” is typically advised he or she may apply for a protective order by filing a sworn application support a claim.
Anyone arrested is entitled to be represented by an attorney during a “bail review” hearing conducted before a District Court Commissioner. These hearings are conducted 24 hours per day, so you may need an attorney familiar with the proceeding and reachable at odd hours.
Anyone who is served with a protective order is typically required to have no contact from the “victim” and other family members, and may be required to vacate the home where the incident is alleged to have happened. Early advice from an experienced domestic violence attorney is essential.
The attorneys of Bours & Lucero, LLC, have substantial domestic violence experience on both sides, whether you are a victim or a person charged with a crime.
