Domestic Violence

Domestic violence and domestic abuse cases can take you to either criminal courts, or family courts - or sometimes both. A domestic violence charge can also give rise to a civil suit. You should retain the services of an attorney who is equally comfortable in all these situations, and has experience handling criminal matters as well as domestic violence cases in both venues. Our office has extensive experience in litigating domestic violence matters.

Domestic violence can also affect child custody and visitation rights. A limitation of custody and visitation, or a requirement for supervised parenting time may be a result from a domestic violence suit.

Experienced Family Law and Divorce Lawyer

We have extensive experience handling all aspects of domestic violence and abuse, in civil and criminal courts, including:

  • Seeking a temporary restraining order (TRO) on behalf of abused or battered party
  • Representing either party in hearings to make the restraining order final or permanent (FRO)
  • Representing individuals accused of violating a TRO or FRO for domestic violence or abuse

Domestic violence needs to be addressed immediately if it is occurring. Spousal abuse and child abuse should not be tolerated. If you or your children are being abused, we can and will help you seek a restraining order. On the other hand, if you are being falsely accused of domestic violence as a tool for leverage in a child custody dispute, or because your spouse is seeking revenge, you should retain competent counsel with the experience to assist you with addressing the domestic violence charges in family court, civil court or criminal court.
