Lissa spent a year as a prosecutor on the domestic violence team at the Lane County District Attorney’s Office. There, she prosecuted cases alongside some of the same prosecutors that she litigates against today. Domestic violence cases are simply prosecuted differently. Alleged victims in these cases are treated differently by prosecutors, and reasoning behind plea negotiations is different than how other cases are negotiated. If you are charged with a crime alleged to be domestic violence, you need an attorney who is experienced in handling these particular cases. Otherwise, the strategies the prosecutors are using on your case may not be properly evaluated by your legal team.
Being charged with a domestic violence case can also come with other legal issues, such as restraining orders, divorces, or custody cases. Lissa has family law experience, including trial experience in divorce, custody, restraining orders, and stalking orders. She can potentially handle the other cases that may come alongside your domestic violence case. Having one attorney handle all of these matters can allow you to deploy one comprehensive legal strategy for multiple cases that involve the same issues and witnesses.
Unfortunately, false accusations can arise in this area of law. Lissa has both dealt with false accusations as a prosecutor (and decided not to file charges), and as a defense attorney when clients are going through family law matters. She has also dealt with cases where some charges have merit, and others are exaggerated due to motives that arise in domestic violence and family law cases, but not necessarily in other areas of the law. Her reputation with prosecutors in these cases mean that she can go to them and they trust her to understand the details of your case and help you secure a favorable plea deal, or fight for you at trial.
