Los Angeles has been the site of some pretty high level celebrity legal news lately, most of it involving domestic abuse and domestic assault. In three very different case, three different celebrities have had to face law enforcement for their alleged actions involving their spouses or significant others. Each of these individuals has required the skill and knowledge of a highly qualified Los Angeles Domestic Violence Defense Attorney.
The first case of Domestic Violence involves Michael Lohan, father of recently jailed Lindsay Lohan. Michael Lohan had to appear in a New York court recently for allegedly attacking his fiancee Kate Major who claimed that Lohan kicked her in the face and threatened to kill her. A judge recently issued a Temporary Order of Protection against Lohan in connection with the claims. Michael Lohan claims that his fiancee was drunk at the time and he never struck her. When a Los Angeles Domestic Violence Defense Attorney represents someone in such a situation, he may instruct the defendant to make as few comments as possible to the press because of potential legal issues.
In a more publicized case, Mel Gibson is utilizing the skill of a Los Angeles Domestic Violence Defense Attorney in his efforts to stay out of jail. His former significant other Oksana Grigorieva is claiming he hit her and made threats against her. Tapes of Gibson threatening the woman are on the Internet, and she is alleging he punched her in the face. X-rays, dental visits and doctor's records are all being taken into consideration in this case.
In the most recent domestic violence case, former Color Me Badd singer Bryan Adams was arrested after a fight with his wife occurred in Honolulu. He allegedly threw the woman across the room and was arrested on suspicion of harassment and later released. Adams has had previous run-ins with the law, having been arrested in 2008 on domestic abuse charges after allegedly threatening to kills his then girlfriend.
As you can see, the details in each of these cases often involve "he said, she said" issues where each spouse is claiming different versions of the events in question. When a Los Angeles Domestic Violence Defense Attorney sits down with his client, he has to weight how damaging the testimony of the other side will be toward his client. In some cases it might be best to settle or make a plea agreement, in other cases it might be right to fight the charges hard.
