Domestic Violence in the Bronx

Representation for Your Family Law Case

Each year, thousands of individuals become victims of domestic violence or are directly affected by the repercussions of abuse. Often, victims do not approach law enforcement to report the abuse. Victims are sometimes afraid of their abusers or they are unaware that they have rights. Domestic violence is a serious crime, and victims have a right to take a legal stand against their batterers. If you or someone you love is being victimized, you need to work with The Law Office of Ava G. Gutfriend right away. At my firm, I stand ready to aggressively defend the rights of individuals and I will work to protect you and your family. A family law attorney such as myself can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.

Domestic violence is not isolated to one neighborhood, one gender, one income level, or any particular type of person. Abuse and violence unfortunately run rampant throughout the Bronx, New York and the entire United States. One of the best things that victims can do is seek help, and there are many options available to them. Law enforcement does not take allegations of abuse lightly, and the state has established safe houses to help protect victims and their families. Of course, legal action can always be pursued, and my firm can help. Inhumane treatment is a ground for divorce in the state of New York, and you may be able to gain custody of your children if you work with an attorney. I can also assist you with obtaining a favorable visitation schedule with the other parent or, in some cases, limiting their visitation because of a history of violence.

If you are a victim, or if you know someone who has been a victim of domestic violence, do not hesitate to work with The Law Office of Ava G. Gutfriend. You can entrust your future, your well-being and your protection into my firm. The sooner you work with an experienced lawyer, the sooner you can begin to heal and rest assured that justice is being served.

  • Sexual abuse
