Domestic Violence

Marin County Domestic Violence Lawyer for Aggressive Defense

Let an Experienced Greenbrae CA Criminal Defense Attorney Help

If you have been arrested for Domestic Violence, you probably have many questions about what will happen next and the possible consequences if you are convicted. It is also likely you have been ordered to stay away from your own home and loved ones. In some cases, however, domestic violence charges stem from a misunderstanding or because a third party thought they saw or heard something that wasn’t actually happening.  As your attorney I will address your charges quickly and effectively, and when appropriate I will work to reunite you with your family to help the process of repairing your relationship begin.

I, Ryan Albaugh, spent three years prosecuting domestic violence cases while assigned to the Marin County District Attorney’s Office Domestic Violence Unit.  Since then I have defended countless people accused of domestic violence in Greenbrae, San Rafael, Sausalito and across California. My experience on both sides gives me a unique perspective on domestic violence cases and the knowledge necessary to defend and guide you through this stressful time.

Penalties for Domestic Violence Convictions can be Severe

The penalties for a conviction can vary substantially depending on if you have prior convictions and whether or not there are any aggravating factors such as injury to the other person.  The most common penalties are probation, fines, Batterer’s classes, suspension or loss of professional licenses and jail or prison.  Obviously, incarceration and the suspension or loss of your professional license can have a severe impact on your life. Don’t face the justice system alone.  Put my experience to work for you.

Contact a Knowledgeable Marin County Domestic Violence Lawyer Immediately.

If you have been charged with domestic violence, do not give any further statements to the police. Additionally, contact me immediately after your arrest so I can begin my investigation while all important evidence is still available and the memories of favorable witnesses are still fresh. By obtaining copies of the documentary evidence, (such as the 911 Call, Photographs, Charging Affidavit, Evidence/Property Receipt, and Witness Affidavit(s), to name a few) I can review the conduct of law enforcement officers and discuss with you those facts that may be missing, inaccurate or falsely recorded in the reports. As your criminal defense attorney, I am committed to quickly and aggressively investigating our case in order to maximize our chances of obtaining the best result possible.
