If you are a victim of domestic violence or domestic abuse, know that you are not alone. According to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 4.7 million women are victims of physical violence each year[1] and 1 in every 7 men experience physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetimes[2].

Domestic abuse is not just limited to physical violence. It can include stalking, harassment, verbal abuse, threats, and emotional and financial abuse as well. Abuse can occur in person, on the phone, and online.

You deserve to live your life without fear from harassment, threats, or other oppressive behavior. Located in San Rafael, Christina Sherman serves clients throughout Marin County and Sonoma County.

In her experience, Christina has also seen individuals inappropriately lodge false allegations against a spouse or partner to gain advantage in a marital case. Often, a finding of domestic violence has severe negative consequences in the areas of child custody, spousal support, and even division of marital property. Walking into court unprepared can have disastrous effects in a divorce and custody case, immediately and for years down the road.
