In our effort to be the best DUI and domestic violence attorneys in the Coachella Valley, we keep our eyes on the arrest trends of local law enforcement to be able to best determine how we can serve you. Because we monitor the daily arrest records of local law enforcement, we have seen a steady rise in the number of DUI and domestic violence arrests in our area since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Even though bars are closed, restaurants and liquor stores are still serving and selling as much alcohol as ever. And, since the pandemic hit us, more people have stayed home with their spouse, partner or kids. This has meant an increase in arrests when one party accuses another of violence because they are getting on each other’s nerves at home.
