Domestic Violence

Both men and women can be accused of domestic violence. Minors can even be charged with domestic violence. It can be referred to as child abuse, spousal abuse or domestic abuse. Partners, ex-partners and ex-spouses can bring criminal charges.

If you have been accused of or charged with domestic violence, the charges are serious and can change your life. Conviction on domestic violence charges can limit your parental rights and access to your children. You can be restricted from entering your own home, and your reputation can be damaged severely.

Comprehensive Defense Representation With A Record Of Success

New York takes allegations of domestic violence seriously. If police are called to the scene of a domestic dispute, it is highly likely that they will make an arrest.

Our Bronx-based domestic violence defense attorneys can represent you in the face of any type of charge or accusation, including:

  • Assault

  • Kidnapping
  • Endangering the welfare of a child
  • Violation of restraining orders

The Consequences Of Conviction

Consequences of conviction for a domestic violence-related charge are severe, far-reaching and, in some respects, permanent. In addition to fines, incarceration, probation and court-ordered treatment for substance abuse or anger management, those convicted of domestic violence suffer other consequences.

With a domestic violence conviction on your record, you will not be treated equally in family court decisions about child custody. You may find it difficult to obtain a job or a place to live. And you will be prohibited from owning or possessing a firearm for the rest of your life.
