Domestic violence is not physical violence alone. Domestic Violence is any behavior used to gain power and control over a spouse, partner, or intimate family member. There are many types of abuse such as physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, isolation, verbal abuse, and economic abuse. We understand it is hard to come forward but reporting is better than the situation escalating.
PLS serves San Diego Counties’ indigent and most vulnerable populations. The majority of PLS efforts are focused on advocating for the steadily increasing number of Covid-era domestic violence victims. In other words, the tireless amount of the free services PLS provides are applied directly to the San Diego community– such as helping domestic violence victims further closing the “justice gap.”
One of the focal points of PLS is helping the community which is why we’re partnering with specific organizations that aid domestic violence victims. If you or anyone you know need help reach out to us or any of the organizations listed.
Family Justice Center: The San Diego Family Justice Center, part of the Office of the City Attorney, is dedicated to transitioning victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and sex trafficking into survivors.

"My attorney Anthony M. Medina was a great help. His consultation was friendly, professional and informing. He met and exceeded any expectations I had. I was pleased with the results of my case and would work with him again in the future."
"Anthony Medina helped me through my divorce. He explained the whole process and was always easy to reach when I had any questions. He made something difficult a lot easier on me and my daughter and was able to settle my divorce quickly and fairly."
"What I appreciated most about working with Anthony was that he would always listen to me. I had worked with other attorneys in the past, and it seemed as all they wanted to do was tell me what needed to occur. Anthony was able to give me guidance while also respecting my opinion and thoughts on the case."
"When I realized I needed to go through a Divorce with child custody issues, I was scared. I was so lucky to find and decide to use Anthony’s services. He was interested, prepared and always came through for me in a difficult time."
