We Provide Help For Domestic Violence Victims
Domestic violence can take many forms, including physical violence, stalking, harassment and threats. If you or your children are being abused, or you are in fear for your safety, contact our firm immediately.
Our lawyers will act fast, taking steps to keep you safe now. We can also help you get permanent protection through a final restraining order.
Many people seek emergency or temporary restraining orders (TROs) without a lawyer. The processes involved when seeking a permanent order are different. Before a judge will issue a final order, there will be a hearing where you will face your abuser. Evidence will be admitted, and witnesses and both parties will be given the opportunity to testify.
You only have one chance to make this order permanent. If you make a mistake, or fail to offer compelling evidence and arguments, your request will be denied. Working with an experienced attorney gives you the best chance at getting permanent protection.
At Weinberg & Cooper, LLC, nothing is more important to us than your safety. We will help you get the legal protection you need.
Were You Accused Of Domestic Violence? You Need Legal Help Now.
A domestic violence charge stays on your record forever. In addition to criminal consequences, the civil consequences of a domestic abuse charge can disrupt your life. You could be forced to move out of your home. Charges can interfere with your custody and parenting time/visitation. You may not be able to leave the country. It could even interfere with your ability to find employment.
Domestic violence allegations are often used as a sword instead of a shield. Many allegations are made in the heat of the moment, as a way to get a leg up during divorce or custody proceedings.
We do everything in our power to overcome domestic violence allegations and prevent the issuing of final restraining orders. We will also work with your criminal defense lawyer to help defeat any associated criminal charges. Protecting your rights and your interests is the most important thing to us.
