When Domestic Violence Rears Its Ugly Head

Hidden and Insidious.


Domestic Violence comes in many forms and guises. It is insidious, cyclical, and pervasive. It is not limited to the stereotype of a drunk man beating his wife. Although male on female abuse is statistically more prevalent, women sometimes abuse their partners or children just as men do. Domestic abuse is sometimes committed against the elderly, and also occurs in gay relationships. If you've been threatened, beaten, or have been the subject of another's unfair control, call us today. We can help you with the legal aspects of domestic abuse and violence and can refer you to other resources who can help you find the safety and counseling you may need. Keep in mind, the police seem to decide to arrest whoever doesn't have a mark. That doesn't mean the one with the mark didn't start it. But now what? You're out on bail and facing jail time. Whether it's your fault of not, call us as soon as possible. The sooner we start, the better your chances.
