Mr. Helfend has more than 30 years of experience in criminal defense and takes domestic violence cases in Los Angeles County and in jurisdictions throughout Southern California.
Mr. Helfend can assemble a team of credible domestic abuse professionals who can help the courts realistically interpret the circumstances that led a prosecutor to bring domestic violence charges against you.

Mr. Helfend will work with you to get domestic violence charges against you reduced or dropped. He can also defend you against charges that you’ve violated a restraining order or personal protection order associated with a domestic dispute.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, it’s common to find spouses who wish to recant statements made to police and prosecutors at the time of the incident. Sometimes your spouse doesn’t want to charge you at all, but may be pressured by police or prosecutors to participate in the court process, even though that’s not their genuine desire. California law has a very specific process that your spouse must follow to withdraw support from the prosecutor’s case. If your spouse does not wish to prosecute you, Mr. Helfend can work with your spouse to retract the complaint lawfully.
If you’re facing a spousal abuse complaint, don’t wait and don’t try to defend yourself in court. Contact Robert Helfend or call toll-free at (800) 834-6434, (310) 456-3317, (818) 591-2809 or (805) 273-5611 for an immediate consultation on your Los Angeles County domestic violence case.
