At J. Torrez Law P.C., our attorney has experience both inside and outside of the courtroom.

These unique skills allow our team to support you with several matters including criminal defense.

Defending You Against Accusations

Our criminal defense practice specifically focuses on family-related matters. Our skills allow us to assist individuals and families dealing with:

  • Assault charges
  • Domestic violence
  • Protective orders

When a family is going through a point of transition, such as a divorce, accusations are often made in the heat of the moment. We will help defend against false accusations and work to minimize the impact these charges have on your future.

Understanding Protective Orders

Protective orders are meant to keep abusers away from the people they have hurt and are specifically designed to end family violence. Our firm can help victims file for a protective order, and also defend individuals who have protective orders against them.

If you have a protective order against you, you should abide by the stipulations outlined in the order — even if you believe it has been made based on a false accusation. Our criminal defense lawyer will work with you to gather evidence in support of your claim and fight against the order. If you violate the protective order, you will be sent to jail regardless if you believe the order is unfair. Our criminal defense attorney will advocate for you in the event that you violate an order, but you are encouraged to secure legal counsel at the time the order is issued.

Aggressive In Defense Of Your Future

When it comes to your family and criminal matters, your future is at stake. The impact of these accusations and charges can have long-lasting repercussions. We will investigate your situation, advise you of your rights and create a strategic defense tailored to your scenario. If you are in need of an advocate, contact us today.
