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!

How Domestic Violence Can Factor Into Your Divorce

If you are currently involved in an abusive relationship, it is important that you speak to an experienced divorce lawyer as soon as possible. Your personal safety could be at risk, as well as the safety of your children. When you come to Lois M. Brenner, Esq. for help, we will bring this to the attention of the divorce court so they can take these facts into consideration when making decisions regarding child custody and visitation in your divorce.

If, on the other hand, you have been wrongfully accused of domestic violence, you should also seek the help of a New York divorce attorney. Allegations of domestic abuse are serious, and they will be handled as such by the court. These allegations could result in an unfavorable custody decision, or a limited visitation schedule. For this reason, timely action will be crucial. Call us at Lois M. Brenner, Esq. today for more information.

    “Wonderful Divorce Lawyer”
    My divorce was very stressful time. Since we were able to agree with my ex-husband on many important issues I originally thought that I will be able to fill in all the necessary documents by myself. It turned out that it is nearly impossible task. The amount of paperwork was overwhelming! I was not happy with some lawyers I've approached - too expensive, too impersonal, too aggressive. When I met Lois everything changed. For very reasonable price she was able to help us - talked to both of us, gave us great suggestions. Everything went extremely well. It was quick and painless. We could not thank her enough!
    “Best Mediator Ever :)”
    We were looking for a mediator to help us with visitation issues we were having due to the pandemic. With all the problems we were having getting the kids back and forth, and arguing about taking trains and buses during visitations, we called Lois Brenner to help us make some decisions. She really set us straight. She spent a lot of time with us so we could get a parenting agreement together to set some rules we could both agree to. I feel a lot better now. Thank you Ms. Brenner.

    “I'm grateful you did not give up on us.”
    I just wanted to take a moment to personally thank you for the wonderful job you did mediating our separation agreement and putting this document together. You not only saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars but helped avoid what would have been a disastrous future in court. I'm grateful you did not give up on us. If I ever am involved in another situation like this, and I hope I never am, I would certainly recommend your services.

    “"High Net Worth Professionals"”
    I am a highly successful money manager and before meeting Lois Brenner, hiring a divorce attorney was a disaster. Two previous divorce attorneys really wasted my funds, and had no savvy when it came to asset and property distribution. Lois Brenner finally fixed the mess I was in. She and her team of financial experts, including attorney Matthew Ehrlich were able to prepare an asset and property distribution that was realistic, keeping in mind tax ramifications, and important distributions and allocations. They negotiated a thorough and financially sound divorce settlement. If you have a lot of assets, just any divorce attorney won’t do. You really need someone with a lot of knowledge. Lois Brenner and Matthew Ehrlich were really impressive. Thanks!!

    “I'm Happily Married. Thanks Lois!”
    Thanks to Lois Brenner our wedding went well because we had our prenuptial agreement in place. We literally had her draft our prenuptial agreement 2 weeks before our wedding. She was thorough, made suggestions to include things we hadn’t even thought of, and got it done really quickly. Thanks Lois :)
