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.

    “"Like at First Sight!"”
    "Like at First Sight!" We consulted Lois on the best, most cost-effective way to get divorced. First, she extended a free in-office consultation to us. It was supposed to be one hour; it was an hour and a half. She was gracious, didn’t rush us, explained thoroughly all the ins and outs of going to court, and answered thoroughly lots of our questions. She also shared lots of great information on divorce mediation, which we really knew nothing about, and now we have decided mediation will be the best route for us. We knew in the first 10 minutes that we really liked and trusted her. We are starting our mediation process with her next week. We are really looking forward to working with her. We feel strongly she is the best person for us.

    “"Finally a parenting agreement we can live with" :)”
    Thank you Ms. Brenner! It was a rough summer trying to get our parenting agreement together.but you really helped. My ex-husband and I fought all summer about what the children's schedule would be once school started. Your endless guidance and productive sessions with us made all the difference. You straightened us out with your sound, caring advice. We both feel better now. Our kids feel better too. Thank you, thank you. We hope you had a great summer. We will recommend you highly to anyone needing a family law attorney.

    “Remarkable lawyer and lady!”
    Lois Brenner is a remarkable attorney and compassionate advocate for dads. She guided me when I was confused and didn't know what to do to get shared custody of my daughter. She encouraged me to stay strong and to fight, and she negotiated a much better custody arrangement than my previous lawyer. What great attorney. Thank you Ms. Brenner

    “"Amazing, Skilled Mediator"”
    Amazing, Skillful Mediator!!!! We went to see Lois Brenner for a mediation consultation. We had pretty much decided our marriage was over. We just wanted to end things fair and amicably. Lois Brenner spent so much time with us, and gave us great insight as to how the process would help us, we hired her on the spot. Our sessions thereafter were stealth. She organized us, helped us identify and address all the issues. She showed us how to communicate effectively throughout the process. We were able to address all our issues, especially property and finances, arrive at a comfortable settlement agreement, and now we are waiting for the judge to sign our divorce. What an extraordinary process. I highly recommend Lois Brenner and mediation. She’s super, and mediation really works.

    “"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!!
