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.

He has a true insider's perspective on how domestic violence cases are handled, which enables him to build the strongest defenses possible for his clients.
