Family Law & Domestic Violence
Let Our Domestic Violence Attorney Help You Escape the Cycle of Violence
It’s completely normal to feel uncomfortable discussing domestic violence or spousal abuse. However, it’s also important to protect yourself and know your rights. You have the right to live out your life without fear of assault or injury. Domestic violence is a serious violation of someone’s civil liberties, and in recent years, the U.S. Department of Justice has amended the exact definition of domestic violence to greater defend victims of abuse and bring the perpetrators to justice.
If you are a victim of domestic violence, immediately call 911.
Domestic violence is often the result of abuse from one party to another, including:
- Significant other
- Someone living in the same household
