How can I get a domestic violence charge dismissed in California before court?

Mark Deniz: 

The key is to be proactive. You do not wanna wait for court to see whether they file charges or not. It is important to let them know a little bit about you, let them know your character, let them know the backstory of the situation and the incident. In most cases, the accused did not get an opportunity to adequately explain their side of the story. So what ends up happening is the prosecution just goes off the police report and a lot of time the officers fill in the blanks in those situations. Well, you don't want that to happen, you wanna give them the whole story, you wanna tell them all about who you are, your character information, your background and the full context and you'll let them know the full scenario of what happens before they file charges, and in many cases, that can result in them not filing charges.
