Our NJ Criminal Defense Attorneys Can Help
Domestic violence matters have serious consequences to the personal and professional lives of those who are found guilty of "a serious crime against society." These consequences including the following:
- Restraining orders;
- Getting kicked out of your home;
- Job loss;
- Not being able to see your children; and
- Jail or prison time.
If you are charged with child abuse or domestic violence, you may lose the ability, before your trial, to go home or to see your children. Therefore, it is very important to have an attorney protect your rights.
Our NJ criminal defense lawyers are committed to distinguishing trivial matters, which the domestic violence laws are not designed to address, from serious abusive behavior. Sometimes, false accusations are made.
Domestic cases often work their way through the family court in a matter of days. Given the serious consequences, they require lawyers with the experience and skill to present the important aspects of a domestic violence situation to a court in a limited time frame. We have lawyers available on an emergency basis to effectively handle such matters. Our team has over 120 years of experience, and we will fight to reunite you with your family.
The law defines child abuse as—
- Any type of neglect of a child;
- Too severe a punishment; or
- Failure to properly supervise.
Abuse can be the neglect of an elderly or disabled person. Even a small lapse in judgment can result in an abuse, neglect, or endangerment charge.
The law defines domestic violence as any crime committed against a family member or a person someone regularly dates or has a significant relationship with. Sometimes, false charges are filed because someone wants you out of the house or wants an advantage in a divorce case.
