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!
