Albany Criminal Defense Attorney
Vigorous Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges
Legitimate occurrences of domestic violence can be tragic, and the potential consequences should never be minimized. However, false and exaggerated domestic violence charges are also common because of the emotional nature of close relationships and the way our laws are enforced.
If you need an experienced, aggressive lawyer to protect your rights, family and future, contact a New York domestic violence lawyer today regarding charges such as the following:
- Aggravated Harassment
- Endangering the Welfare of a Child
- Child Abuse Allegations
- Orders of Protection
Assertive, Experienced Protection From Harsh Consequences
When police in New York are called to deal with a domestic disturbance, they almost always arrest one of the people involved. Although this may be the only dependable way to separate the parties and prevent escalation, another common result is an unjustified criminal charge or an order of protection that will have serious consequences in your life.
- A jail sentence and/or lengthy probation term
- An order of protection (restraining order) that can disrupt your family relationships
- Serious restrictions on basic rights such as your right to possess a firearm
- Loss of your job in law enforcement, security or other fields, and a criminal record that severely limits your future prospects for employment
