Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) December 28, 2013
MacGregor & Collins, LLP, a domestic violence defense law firm in Newport Beach, California, has recently released a new website (http://www.domestic-violence-law.com) to assist those facing domestic violence charges in California. Unlike other domestic violence websites, this site is designed to help the abuser get help, a controversial project that may receive backlash from victims.
The site itself is written entirely by Attorney Randy Collins (MacGregor & Collins, LLP firm partner), who provides legal commentary about recent domestic violence offenses and gathers statistics to help give abusers and victims a better idea of whether or not domestic violence abusers can be rehabilitated. It also examines controversial issues regarding false domestic violence allegations and court-ordered anger management.
Over the last few years, organizations designed to help protect victims of domestic violence have gained a lot of traction as well as overwhelming public support. Despite MacGregor & Collins, LLP’s mission to help decrease instances of domestic abuse, some readers have reached out to the firm to express their discontent.
Attorney Collins feels that the benefits offered by the new website outweigh the risks and that any negative feedback that they receive is to be expected. “There are countless resources available for those who suffer injuries as a result of domestic violence, but there are very few resources for those who find themselves committing acts of domestic violence to get the help that they need. We are fully aware that this is not going to be a popular site amongst domestic violence victims, but we feel that we have an obligation to assist abusers in one way or another to help them rehabilitate.
“It is no secret that the penalties currently being imposed upon domestic violence abusers are not working. Instances in which abusers rehabilitate and become nonviolent are few and far between. Having represented these types of individuals on many occasions, I can say with confidence that there are a number of abusers who do not want to victimize their loved ones, but simply have not learned how to properly manage their anger and emotions. Of course, this is no excuse for a beating, but we feel that those who truly want to rehabilitate and treat their loves ones the right way should be given every opportunity to do so without putting others at risk.
“Our new domestic violence website is designed to do just that, while helping to inform abusers about their legal rights along the way. If we can help one man, woman, or child avoid a beating as a result of our new site, we will feel more than satisfied with the effort that we have put forth to make this resource available to the public,” said Attorney Collins.
