Cross-Examination Reveals False Accusations

Domestic violence situations are always emotional, but when false accusations are made, they can wreak havoc on people’s lives. Not long ago, Oakland criminal defense attorney Elliot Silver defended a client whose former partner filed a temporary restraining order following an altercation when they broke up. It was apparent that Silver’s client suffered injuries in the struggle. During the court proceeding, attorney Silver fiercely cross-examined the petitioner. By catching the witness in numerous lies and matching the weapon used against his client, Elliot demonstrated that his client was the true victim. It became crystal clear that the restraining order had no merit, and the petition was denied. Because this man chose Elliot Silver as his champion defender, he was saved from a court order based on a fabrication.

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.
