The fact is that innocent people are wrongfully accused of domestic violence all the time. Many accusers make false allegations to get revenge on a spouse after a fight or out of jealousy. Also, during a divorce, many people make untruthful claims hoping to get the upper hand when it comes to spousal support or child custody.

As an experienced Santa Rosa criminal defense attorney, I understand your plight and can effectively argue on your behalf. If I get involved in your case early on, I may be able to present your defense to the prosecutors before your case is filed or convince them to dismiss the case before it goes to trial. However, if your case does go to trial, you can rest assured knowing that I am fully prepared to defend your rights.

Give my firm a call today if you are in need of proven legal defense.

Criminal Defense FAQ
  • I am innocent—do I still need a criminal defense attorney?
    Yes! If you have been arrested there is a chance you may be convicted, even if you truly did nothing wrong. Having a Santa Rosa criminal defense attorney from The Law Office of Joe Bisbiglia on your side can aggressively fight to protect you from false charges. An experienced attorney can make all the difference when standing up for you so your choice of representation is a very important one.
  • What is the difference between probation and parole?
    Parole takes place after a person has spent time in prison, whereas probation may be used as an actual alternative criminal sentence. Parole is usually used to monitor a person who has been released from jail. Probation is a criminal sentence for those convicted of lesser offenses.
  • How does the prosecution determine the charges I will face?
    The prosecution will look to convict you on charges they feel have sufficient evidence for a conviction. A case will typically be dropped if the prosecution feels that there is not enough evidence to reach a conviction. What constitutes enough evidence to the prosecutor is up to their discretion.
  • What is a grand jury?
    Grand juries are made up of individuals used to determine if enough evidence exists in order to take a case to trial. A grand jury will use witness testimony, documentation, and other evidence in reaching its determination. The grand jury will decide whether the case will go to trial in the end.
  • Will I be arrested for refusing to give police a statement?
    Exercising you right to silence cannot be used against you. You are protected from testifying against yourself by the Fifth Amendment. If a police officer is trying to intimidate you into giving a statement, get in touch with a criminal defense attorney immediately.
