Because your rights matter. And so does experienced counsel.
Domestic violence crimes – those involving acts or abuses that typically occur in the home and involve individuals in a close relationship – carry stiff penalties in California. These types of allegations are often mishandled or insufficiently defended because attorneys do not know or understand the options available and due to the intense social stigma facing defendants.
Attorney Nancy Kardon has spent the better part of her extensive legal career successfully defending clients against allegations of domestic violence across a broad spectrum of matters, including:
- Domestic Assault & Battery
- Domestic Sexual Abuse
- Elder Abuse
- Child Abuse
- Criminal Harassment
With an extensive knowledge base and specific legal skills culled from years working in the trenches of these types of cases, Nancy brings successful defense strategies and an unwavering commitment to the rights of her clients to every case she takes on. She understands that whenever family and children are involved in a case, the stakes are higher and the potential penalties – particularly in California – are exponentially harsher than when these crimes are alleged in almost any other context. As such, she approaches each case with respect, discretion and an open mind – knowing there are always two sides to these stories and both need to be heard.
In this sensitive area of law, there are avenues available to defendants that involve rehabilitation and counseling, often in lieu of extended prison sentences. Only a knowledgeable lawyer can fight for that. Allegations can be fabricated and – particularly when other family matters, like divorce, are in play – circumstances aren’t always what they seem. Nancy approaches each case with a fresh eye and a seasoned intellect. When the outcome of a case hinges on something this personal, you can’t afford to overlook the power of experience. Let Nancy and her team fight for you.
