Domestic Violence Charges

Long Island Domestic Violence Lawyer

Accusations of domestic violence are serious criminal matters that can lead to heavy penalties as well as destroying your personal and business reputation. This criminal charge can be related to several types of abuse, including any physical, emotional, verbal or psychological abuse between spouses, family members, co-inhabitants and even neighbors. All of the following can be classified as domestic violence:

  • Sexual abuse
  • Child abuse
  • Assault and battery
  • Physical or sexual contact that is against the will of the other person
  • Threats
  • Stalking
  • Harassment
  • Emotional abuse (yelling, name calling, isolation, intimidation)

If you have been charged with domestic violence it is extremely important to get legal representation from our firm immediately. A Long Island criminal defense lawyer can help you through this difficult time. Many accusations of domestic violence are later found to be false; this can occur in cases of a bitter divorce battle when one party is trying to gain an advantage in a custody case or other relationship problem that escalates out of control. Ensuring that you are being protected by an attorney with extensive experience in court is extremely important with regard to the final outcome of your case.
