Standing Up For Victims

If you or your children are suffering from abuse at the hands of a spouse or partner, there are immediate steps we can take to keep you safe, including getting a protective order. We can file for the protective order on your behalf, and then begin the process of filing for divorce if that is your wish.

If you are a victim of domestic violence, we are prepared to put our comprehensive knowledge to work for you. A protective order could help keep you safe and prevent an abusive spouse from being around your children.

Protecting You Against False Allegations

A charge of domestic violence can land you in jail, take away your parenting rights, your ability to re-enter your house and an ability to own a firearm. To make matters even more serious, in the vast majority of times that police are called on a domestic disturbance, they make an arrest, even if it is not the victim’s wish.

While we fully understand the abuse that victims are put through, we also know that all too often people will try to use domestic violence accusations to get an upper hand in a divorce proceeding. Even in cases when an accuser drops a charge, authorities may not cease proceedings. Through our rigorous approach to gathering facts in these circumstances, we are able to put forward the strongest case in your favor and help get you and your loved ones to a place of greater stability and health.
