Domestic Violence Allegations And Restraining Orders
Charges of domestic violence often stem from hotly contested divorce proceedings. Mr. Schwartz is both a criminal defense and family law attorney. We understand the emotional roller coaster of family disagreements. Our top priority is to protect your safety.
We will act quickly to help you obtain an order of protection if you or your children are victims of verbal or physical abuse. The order of protection will be put into effect immediately to remove your partner or spouse from your home. Your alleged abuser will lose his or her right to carry a weapon.
Even if you are not in a relationship with your abuser, we can seek protection orders against stalkers. We will aggressively pursue jail time for 10 days if the opposing party violated the protection order’s terms.
Defending Against False Domestic Abuse Allegations

When appropriate, our firm will interview family friends, relatives or neighbors to uncover any inconsistencies or false statements in the police reports. We will advocate for the restraining order to be lifted based on your innocence.
