Regardless of what led up to your incident, you can count on me for effective counsel in civil domestic violence proceedings throughout Central New York, including Onondaga, Cayuga, Oneonta and Madison counties.
Dedicated Central New York advocate works to protect victims
If you are a victim of domestic violence or fear you are in physical danger from someone you have been in an intimate relationship with, or someone you have lived with as a roommate or housemate, or someone you are related to by blood or marriage, you need to act to protect yourself and your children. In cases where Central New Yorkers are threatened by a spouse, intimate partner or another family member or roomate, my firm applies for orders of protection, also known as restraining orders. Once this type of order is entered, the named individual is subject to arrest for a crime if they violate the order by taking one of the following actions:
- Physically approaching the person protected by the order, or their home, school or workplace
- Communicating with the protected person in any way, including by mail, telephone, email, text message, instant message or social media posts
- Sending messages to the protected person through a third party, or harassing the protected person by approaching an acquaintance of theirs
Consequently, a limited order of protection instructs a respondent to refrain from any criminal offense against the protected person. Should the named individual violate the order while committing a crime such as assault, stalking, harassment or criminal mischief, they are subject to additional penalties on top of their standard criminal sentence.
As a seasoned New York family lawyer, I know how powerful an order of protection can be. You deserve to live free from fear, and a protective order that can be promptly enforced clearly defines what type of behavior is unacceptable.
Seasoned litigator assists individuals accused of abusive conduct
Arguments between current or former relationship partners can easily get out of control. This can lead to situations where one party seeks an injunction or restraining order when proper legal grounds do not exist. If your rights have been infringed upon or threatened because of a misinterpretation of the facts or an effort to get the upper hand during a divorce, you need an experienced, effective lawyer. My firm works diligently to prevent the negative repercussions associated with an unwarranted temporary or permanent injunction. An order of protection against you could threaten your reputation, job, assets and freedom. I will aggressively counter false allegations brought against you and make every legal effort to secure justice.
