Domestic Violence

Experienced New York City Lawyers Defend Domestic Violence Charges

Assisting clients with domestic violence cases

If you have been charged with domestic violence in or around the New York City area, it is important that you contact a domestic violence defense attorney as soon as possible. At Raiser and Kenniff, PC, we are experienced criminal defense attorneys who have effectively defended countless individuals facing criminal charges. As former prosecutors, we know the “other side” of the law and thoroughly understand the criminal justice system, giving us a distinct advantage in upholding your rights in court. We can put our extensive knowledge and experience to work for you and are committed to providing you with the highest level of legal service available.

A charge of domestic abuse can destroy your life. If you are involved in a contentious divorce, child custody dispute or simply the breakup of a relationship where your partner feels jealousy, hostility or the need for revenge, they may file domestic abuse charges against you. Simply being accused of domestic violence can stigmatize you because police, friends and family can think you are guilty based on your arrest regardless of the facts.

The actions that can constitute domestic violence can differ from state to state depending on local laws. They can include charges like domestic assault, stalking, menacing, abuse, harassment or reckless endangerment.

If you are accused of domestic violence, there is too much at risk for you to try to fight the accusations by yourself. Your life, your employment and your personal relationships are all at stake. You could be forced out of your home and barred from contact with your children. Even worse, if you are convicted of domestic violence you could be sentenced to jail time, ordered to pay fines and attend counseling or anger management classes and be placed on probation.

If you find yourself in a domestic violence situation, don’t take any chances. Get the professional assistance of one of our domestic violence attorneys at our NYC firm to provide you with experienced legal representation and advice.
