Unfortunately, domestic violence is a pervasive problem in our society. Victims are known to be at higher risk when their partners are faced with their leaving and/or divorcing them. I have been involved with domestic violence issues throughout my 35-year career, including as a criminal defense attorney representing abused women who have killed their assailants in self-defense. If you have domestic violence issues, it is important that your attorney understand and be sensitive to the dynamics of same and the ways in which the law can help protect you.
DETROIT AND ROYAL OAK-AREA RESTRAINING ORDER ATTORNEY
I bring more than 35 years of experience to my practice in Michigan and focus my efforts on resolving issues as amicably and efficiently as possible. However, when a trial is necessary to protect my clients’ interests, I am fully prepared to aggressively litigate on their behalf, drawing on my experience as a trial lawyer in family law, criminal law and personal injury cases.
PERSONAL PROTECTION ORDERS
These orders are issued and overseen by the same judge who is handling the divorce. I work with clients who have been domestic violence victims to make sure that they understand their rights and assist them in obtaining the Personal Protection Order, and to take practical additional steps to protect themselves.
I also represent individuals who have been accused of abuse, informing them of their options and working to make sure the allegations do not harm their ongoing divorce or other family law case. False accusations are often an issue during a contentious divorce; you can rely on me to make sure you receive a fair hearing and to press for restoration of your right to enter your home and spend time with your children.
