New Jersey Domestic Violence Defense Attorney
Essex County Spousal Assault and Battery Lawyer
If the police get called to an individual’s home for domestic violence, the chances are high that someone may be arrested. Police officers are required to arrest the alleged abuser if the accuser shows signs of injury, and can bring people to jail even if there is no sign of harm based solely on the allegation of the alleged victim. After the arrest, a restraining order is usually issued, preventing contact with the alleged victim and often resulting in displacement from your home and apartment and financial distress.
At the Law Office of John Tierney, LLC, we have an extensive understanding of the domestic violence laws in New Jersey and New York. Attorney John Tierney is a former New York prosecutor, giving him a unique knowledge of the strategies the other side will attempt to bring against you.
Aggressive and Experienced Domestic Violence Defense
Our criminal defense lawyers know what it takes to fiercely pursue successful results for your domestic violence case. Usually, there are two courts involved with domestic violence issues in New Jersey: The Family Court is involved for the restraining order and the Municipal Court or Superior Court is involved for the criminal charge. We know how to effectively represent you for all situations that may arise in your domestic violence case and will take the time to explain every option you have.
Domestic violence charges can result from, or arise in connection with many crimes, including:
- Terroristic threats
- Alleged non-consensual touching
- Spousal abuse
- Juvenile offenses
We will dig through the evidence surrounding your charges and find all the facts in order to obtain the best result possible for you.
Fighting Restraining Orders in New Jersey
Restraining orders are dangerous court orders that need to be taken seriously. Having a restraining order filed against you can result in children being taken away, loss of liberties, and losing the right to firearms and other weapons. You can also still be required to make support and mortgage payments for the house you are barred from.
Our criminal defense lawyers will perform a full investigation of your case and are committed to aggressively representing your position in Court. We will strive to meet your expectations and guide you to a successful result.
