A domestic violence case also has several collateral effects. A domestic violence charge, (i.e. Penal Code 273.5, commonly known as spousal battery), will trigger the Department of Child and Family Services to commence an investigation while there is an active criminal case if there are any minor children. If the parties are getting a divorce, the domestic violence arrest will also affect the child custody and child and spousal support orders. Mr. Khachatourians has successfully prevented domestic violence charges from getting filed against his clients and has been able to handle the collateral effects as to obtain a positive outcome for his clients in the family law, restraining order, and immigration matters as well.
A nursing home recently receiving a “G” level deficiency or a citation, may trigger a cross-reporting investigation with the Department of Justice, Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse. Such an investigation may subject the facility, the administrator, Director of Nurses, charge nurses, and/or the CNAs to criminal prosecution. The case may also affect the arrestee’s professional license; a disciplinary action may be commenced against the professional license with the various licensing boards in California, including but not limited to, the medical board, RN board, LVN board. A criminal conviction may also trigger a civil lawsuit against the provider. If the medical professional is not a US citizen, there may also be immigration consequences that subject the arrestee to removal or deportation proceedings.
A workplace investigation regarding sexual harassment, may trigger a civil lawsuit, possible media coverage, and possible criminal prosecution. There may be a simultaneous unemployment hearing or a workplace violence restraining order hearing that subjects the parties to alternative judicial proceedings and multiple or inconsistent statements. Mr. Khachatourians has the experience in navigating through the various judicial proceedings as to vindicate the best possible resolution for his clients.
