Una multa por infracción en movimiento puede parecer relativamente insignificante, pero es importante revisar su caso para asegurarse de que su situación se maneje de la mejor manera.

Las multas que involucran exceso de velocidad, DUI, conducir en estado de ebriedad, conducir con una licencia suspendida, conducir sin seguro, no comparecer, violaciones de delitos menores, multas de luz roja, golpear y huir, conducir imprudentemente y otras violaciones de tránsito, requieren acciones específicas para cada cargo.

A veces, una multa puede ser desestimada, mientras que otras veces, se necesita el conocimiento, la experiencia y la habilidad de un abogado para reducir los cargos.

Domestic violence is a serious issue affecting men, women and children throughout the Central Coast that can cause emotional /physical abuse and anguish, and have far-reaching affects.

A surprise to many people is that domestic violence does not just happen to women. Domestic violence can be an argument between many combinations of  relationships in which the people involved have or had a relationship with each other and regularly reside or formerly resided in the same household. 

 

Some of these relationship combinations include:

  • A current or former husband/wife

  • Someone who has a child with you

  • Your own child or stepchild

  • Grandparent/in-Law

  • Aunt/Uncle/Cousin/Niece/Nephew

  • Someone you are currently dating or previously dated;

  • Someone who currently lives with you or previously lived with you

  • Someone related to you by blood or marriage

What is Domestic Violence?

Unfortunately, there are many possibilities for what Domestic Violence look like. Domestic violence can be spoken, written, or physical.  Some examples include:
