What Is Domestic Violence?
Traditionally, domestic violence has been defined as the physical abuse
that occurs between two spouses or former spouses. In recent years, the
umbrella of what is considered to be domestic violence has expanded. Domestic
violence can now include children, relatives, unmarried people who are
living together, people who share a child, and even people who are simply dating.
Being charged with a count of domestic violence can lead to serious penalties
such as jail time, fines, probation, and counseling. Additionally, such
a charge can potentially impact your familial and social relationships
in significant, negative ways. When you are charged with domestic violence,
it is essential that you retain an attorney who will work tirelessly to
make sure that your rights, reputation, and future are protected.
At Galluzzo & Arnone LLP, we have
more than four decades of experience representing individuals who have been charged with domestic violence.
Unlike other assault lawyers in New York, each attorney at our firm is
a former prosecutor. This means that we are aware of the tactics that
prosecutors use against our clients and we use this knowledge to come
up with effective strategies and tough defenses.
