Suffolk County order of protection violations and domestic violence
Domestic violence charges encompass a broad range of actions, from harassment to physical abuse. While domestic violence generally occurs between spouses of family members, harassing or stalking a stranger can also lead to similar charges and protective orders.
In domestic violence cases, an accuser can ask the court for an order of protection, also known as a restraining order. Our attorneys will defend you if you have been named in an order of protection or have been charged with another type of domestic violence or a related crime, including:
- Harassment and aggravated harassment
- Stalking or menacing
- Orders of protection
- Violation of personal protection
- Endangering the welfare of a child
Penalties for domestic violence charges
Conviction for any type of domestic violence charges can land you in jail and give you a criminal record. Additionally, an order of protection can keep you from going home, spending time with your family, and can have an impact on child custody.
Attorney Brian Bass is a former prosecutor. He knows how the prosecution handles these types of cases and he will work to protect your rights and your reputation. Whether you are facing assault or harassment charges, we will work to minimize the penalties and impact of the order of protection as well as keep you out of jail.
