Domestic Violence Claims in Oakland

An Experienced Divorce Attorney Handling Domestic Violence Claims in Oakland

Domestic violence is an ugly aspect of any divorce where a spouse uses power and control over their partner. Addressing those complex and emotional issues requires an attorney possessing a full and in-depth understanding of the full cycle of domestic violence. Frustration over the end of a marriage can lead to emotional abuse that manifests into physical violence and often leads to a make-up period. Many lawyers and members of the judiciary do not comprehend the entire cycle.

At the Law Offices of Hannah E. Sims, LL.M., our founder understands that domestic violence is beyond a physical altercation that occurs after a marriage gone bad. She focuses on getting to the facts and protecting your rights if you are a victim or the accused.

For immediate protection following an instance or accusation of domestic violence, contact the Law Offices of Hannah E. Sims, LL.M. at 510-250-7834 or toll free at 888-702-5859.
