Domestic Violence & Abuse

Protecting You & Your Family Against Domestic Violence

Domestic violence can be an underreported crime or a weapon du jour in the struggle for dominance that punctuates divorce litigation. This includes verbal, emotional, and physical abuse of any kind. No spouse or child should have to endure abuse – whether it is flagrant or subtle in nature. You need an attorney with the experience to protect you and your family when the stakes are high.

Domestic violence can result in criminal charges, orders of protection, and arrest. If one spouse is excluded from the residence, the children’s relationship with that parent might be affected. The financial pressures on the excluded parent can also be enormous. At the end of the day, no system is perfect. The court’s concern is that no spouse or child is subjected to abuse.

Over the last 35+ years, Lois M. Brenner, Esq. and our team have represented numerous clients involved in abusive situations. We know how to handle these cases. Call us today for the help you need!
