Nearly 30 Years' of Trial-Tested Experience

Passaic County Domestic Violence Attorney

Available 24/7 for Your Free Consultation - (973) 828-0711

Law enforcement authorities and prosecutors take domestic violence cases seriously. One of the difficulties that defendants have is the inherent bias that law enforcement officials have against the alleged abuser. This can make it frustrating for defendants, especially if only one side has been presented to law enforcement officers.

Whether you are being falsely accused, or you feel that your situation was a misunderstanding, at David L. Pine, LLC, our Passaic County domestic violence lawyer can help. Don't try to explain your side to authorities - contact us first. We can get to the bottom of the claims against you, including interviewing witnesses, scrutinizing the basis of the arrest, and more.

A police officer can only take into custody a domestic violence suspect if:

  • The victim shows any signs of injury caused by an act of domestic violence
  • The officer finds probable cause that a no-contact court order has been violated
  • The officer finds probable cause that a weapon was involved in the claimed act of domestic violence
  • The accused person has a warrant in effect

We're ready to talk about your case during a free evaluation. Give us a call today at (973) 828-0711 and check out what our clients have said.

Consequences of a Domestic Violence Conviction

Domestic violence can be charged against a spouse or ex-spouse, roommate or ex-roommate, girlfriend or boyfriend, people who share a child together, etc. The mere accusation of domestic violence can damage relationships and reputations for years, even if the accusation turns out to be false.

Criminal penalties for domestic violence include jail time, fines, a permanent criminal record, and possible mandatory counseling or anger management, impediment to possessing firearms ID cards or adoption of children. To avoid the maximum penalties allowed by the law, don't hesitate to contact our firm today to meet with an attorney for a free case consultation.
