Representing the Falsely Accused
In many tough family matters – like a contentious divorce or a heated custody battle – one spouse feels the need to sabotage the other. If things get out of hand, one spouse can find themselves falsely accused of domestic violence.
If someone has accused you of abuse that you did not commit, our family lawyer can step in and fight to protect your rights. If someone has filed an unnecessary restraining order against you, we can fight for you in court to have it overturned. We fight for the wrongly accused so they do not pay the price for someone’s false allegations.
