Domestic Violence Reduced to Misdemeanor
Domestic violence cases are typically pursued aggressively by Oakland prosecutors. This makes it essential to protect your record and secure a result that does not unfairly punish you. For example, attorney Elliot Silver represented a man who was accused of holding his wife over a 15th story balcony. This was a serious and potentially devastating situation, but attorney Silver saw the situation for what it was and expedited the case to a manageable conclusion. By negotiating with the prosecution, his client agreed to participate in 52 weeks of domestic violence classes, time served, and plead to a misdemeanor.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
