Has a household member accused you of domestic violence? Did your stepchild lie and tell a teacher that you hit him or her after a disagreement? Is an ex-spouse saying you abuse your child in an attempt to get sole custody?

Domestic violence cases in New York are not like other criminal law cases. Although charges may be based on a lie — or you and your spouse or partner patched things up shortly after a false accusation — the final outcome may be not at all what you expect.

If the police ask you to come by the station so you can “tell your side of the story” or if you believe that the matter will be cleared up once you get before a judge, contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer first.
