- Sexual assault
- Destruction of property
- Stalking and harassment
- Threats made in person or through electronic devices
- Violating protection orders
- False imprisonment or kidnapping

How Partovi Law Protects Your Rights
For Abuse Victims
Mr. Partovi copiously documents all physical, emotional, and property damage you have suffered as a result of your abuser. He presents this information, along with any threatening messages, in a compelling manner to properly convince the courts that you are a victim of abuse.
For your protection, our lawyer can develop and secure a robust restraining order against the accused. He understands the complexities of domestic violence laws and can apply this knowledge to help you protect your rights against your abuser in family law cases, including child support, child custody, and divorce.
For the Falsely Accused
False accusations resulting in criminal charges can be levied as a means of revenge, to gain an edge in family law cases, or even due to tragic misinterpretations. If you are accused of domestic violence, Mr. Partovi will review all the evidence against you.
Mr. Partovi's ability to identify flimsy evidence and violations of rights allows him to vigorously challenge domestic violence accusations. Your actions throughout your case will be under a microscope, even if you did nothing wrong. Mr. Partovi can give you proper behavioral advice and stand up to unjust court orders when necessary.

Are You a Victim of Domestic Violence?
If you are suffering from domestic violence, it is important that you, your children, and any other loved ones are removed from the abusive situation. Law enforcement, the judicial system, and our domestic violence lawyer are here to help protect abuse victims. If you have a potential domestic violence case, contact the police and our attorney so you can receive the help you need.
If the police arrest your abuser, try to give them as much information as possible so officers can make a detailed report. Mr. Partovi's team in Spokane, WA, can file a restraining order, gather evidence, and start other legal actions to prevent further harm to you and your loved ones.
Domestic violence is never the victim's fault — it occurs when one person feels entitled to control over their partner and chooses abuse to exert that control. Even if you fight back or resort to violence to defend yourself in an abusive situation, there is only one person who is the primary abuser in the relationship.
How You Can Keep Yourself Safe
Leave Your Abuser
Our Spokane lawyer understands that it can be difficult and dangerous to leave an abuser, but doing so can save your life. Create a safety plan for yourself and any children, tell trusted friends and family members of your plan to leave, and gather the essentials (cash, credit cards, passports, medication, social security cards, custody papers, etc.) before safely removing yourself from the abusive situation.
Relocate or Change Your Living Situation
Washington's housing laws protect victims of domestic violence. If you follow the required steps, you have the right to terminate a lease early without penalty. If your order of protection gives you possession of the house, you have the right to ask your landlord to change the locks.
Take Advantage of Domestic Violence Leave
People who are in abusive situations have the right to take time off of work for court proceedings, medical and psychological help, safety planning, relocation, and more. You can use paid time off, sick leave, or leave without pay and your job is protected by law when using this leave.
Don't Let Your Situation Escalate

According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, about 20 people per minute are abused by an intimate partner in the U.S. That equates to more than 10 million men and women each year.
When victims of domestic violence delay getting out of the situation and contacting an attorney, they run the risk of serious injury, homelessness, and, in extreme cases, death. Reach out to our Spokane attorney to review your legal options today.

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.
"I'd hire him in a second."
I'm the opposing party and giving them 5 stars should say something. Dave Partovi is one of the very few lawyers I've known to be honest, genuinely caring and respectful to all parties involved. He's earns his wins with integrity and hard work not with lies and dirty tricks. If he wasn't my ex's lawyer already, I'd hire him in a second. Thanks to Dave, my distaste for lawyers is a little less each day.View on Google
