Domestic Violence Defense Attorneys In Albany

We Defend Your Rights – And Protect Your Reputation

When crimes are alleged to have taken place in the home, it can be devastating to everyone involved. Charges of domestic violence are especially damaging to a person’s reputation, and even without a conviction, may strain relationships outside of your family, causing problems in your career and with friends and other family members. If you’ve been charged with Domestic Violence in Albany, you may already have an order of protection (Restraining Order) against you, or otherwise be facing immediate legal sanction. It’s important that you take your own rights seriously and act to defend them immediately.

Domestic Violence is frequently claimed during divorce proceedings, and may limit your access to your children or force you out of your home. These are extremely serious charges that involve strong emotions from all parties – even including your children. Your best bet is to work with attorneys who bring a calm, reasoned approach to family issues, and can interview or negotiate with witnesses and relatives without inflaming tensions within your home.

And because of the complexities of Domestic Violence law, it’s not uncommon for Albany prosecutors to ignore a spouse’s desire to drop the charges in a case and try to strong arm the accused into accepting plea bargains and counseling programs that leave your record tarnished for years to come. Our attorneys work with domestic violence cases every day, and we do everything in our power to ensure that the prosecution treats you fairly and respects your family’s wishes.
