Domestic Violence & Spousal Abuse

Norwalk Spousal Abuse Attorney

When incidents of domestic violence occur, I can help you use the court system for immediate protection. I help domestic violence victims throughout Connecticut receive protection through both the criminal courts, if an arrest has been made, and the family courts, whether or not an arrest has been made. As your Stamford domestic violence attorney, I will be attentive and keep in regular contact with you through every step of the process. Courts are very sensitive to allegations of domestic violence and strive to be certain that all people are safe from abuse. If there is no actual physical violence but you feel threatened, you still have options for protection.

As your lawyer, I can help you provide the court with proof of both abuse and threats of abuse. With more than 40 years of experience in family and criminal law in Stamford and all of Fairfield County, I have the broad knowledge necessary to obtain court-ordered protection from domestic violence for you and your children. Connecticut courts have a provision for emergency restraining orders available on a same-day basis without the delay that exists in the normal process. I have been serving the legal needs of Stamford and Fairfield County clients my entire career, and my familiarity with judges and others in the judicial system can provide you with a valuable asset.

False Claims Of Domestic Violence

Courts are acutely aware of the fact that false allegations of violence are sometimes made in order to gain a perceived advantage. Judges look on false claims of domestic abuse and violence as attempts to manipulate the system. Accordingly, it is important that false claims not be made. I expect my clients to be honest with me from the moment we first meet. If they are not, my ability to help them is limited.

Few things can be as devastating as having a false claim of spousal abuse or child abuse made against you, and these charges must be defended vigorously. Such claims can have immediate impact on where you can reside and whether or not you can see your children. Unless properly handled, they can impact your ability to hold certain types of jobs. I have vast experience defending against false claims of spousal abuse and child abuse in both the family courts and the criminal courts. I will provide you with proactive representation by an attorney who is recognized as both a seasoned divorce lawyer and a veteran criminal defense lawyer.
