Mr. Partovi's ability to identify flimsy evidence and violations of rights allows him to vigorously challenge domestic violence accusations.

Protecting Your Rights After a False Accusation
Accusations of abuse can elicit strong emotions. If you are arrested on criminal charges of domestic abuse, it is important that you remain calm and say nothing to the police. How you act and what you say during your arrest can be used against you in court.
Remaining silent and deferring all questions to your lawyer can help prevent your accuser's legal team from gaining evidence to use against you. When given the opportunity to contact an attorney, choose Mr. Partovi. Our domestic violence lawyer will begin collecting vital information for your defense, gleaning key information from the police, and helping you avoid incriminating statements.
Our Lawyer Can Defend You Against Criminal Accusations
If you were in a heated argument and your partner became physically aggressive with you, you may have had to resort to self-defense. If this was the case, our lawyer can try to prove that both sides were mutually violent.
Claiming Insufficient Evidence
Our attorney can look for holes in the prosecutor's evidence against you. If our attorney is able to find any discrepancies in the evidence, he will be sure to highlight the mistakes or inconsistencies.
Discussing Your Intent
To secure a conviction, the prosecutor has to prove that your abuse was willful and not an accident. For example, if you slammed a door after an argument but didn't know your partner was following you through that door, our attorney can help prove that the incident was a mistake and cannot be considered domestic abuse.
How Else Can Mr. Partovi Help?
If you find yourself in a dangerous situation, Mr. Partovi can help you file for a restraining order, a domestic violence protection order, or a no-contact order to keep your abuser away from you and your children.
If you've been wrongfully accused, Mr. Partovi can help you fight these orders so you can maintain access to your family.
Washington is a no-fault divorce state, meaning people can separate due to irreconcilable differences. The party seeking a divorce cannot bring fault-based claims to the case. Because of this, a judge will not consider domestic violence when making a divorce ruling.
Mr. Partovi can help guide you through the divorce process from his Spokane office.
Domestic violence is one of the many factors considered by the court when awarding custody. Those with a history of domestic violence against their child or partner may face limitations when it comes to child custody, such as supervised visitation or termination of parental rights.
If you have been wrongfully accused, Mr. Partovi can protect your access to your children by exposing the flaws in custody agreements and proving that access is in your child's best interest.
Maintenance and Assets
While domestic violence may not be a direct factor in divorce, it can affect matters related to divorce. If domestic abuse has caused the victim PTSD, caused them to lose their job, or cut them off from their support networks, maintenance awards may be affected.
The way a judge handles the allocation of marital assets can change if they are being used to ameliorate the effects of domestic violence, such as through counseling and medical bills.
