Allegations of domestic violence or abuse can be seen at the forefront of many divorce and custody cases. Domestic violence comes in many forms, not just physical, and while bruises and black eyes permeate our television screens, we know that the emotional and verbal scars have a lasting impact on the recipients of the abuse, and the children who were present to hear the verbal assaults. There are also many people who never report the incidents that occur in their home.

All of the attorneys at Copps DiPaola Silverman, PLLC have been trained to work with clients whose lives have been affected by domestic violence. We have litigated hundreds of cases involving family offense allegations (orders of protection), cruel and inhuman treatment, and intentional torts. Our attorneys have close relationships with the various agencies providing services to survivors and work hard to ensure communication.

The most dangerous time for a victim is when she tries to leave an abusive situation. We see this played out all of the time in the Courtroom. It is critical to have an attorney who understands the dynamics of domestic violence and the various tactics that your spouse/partner will use, including using the court system and your children, to try to make you stay.

We also handle the very complicated cases where someone is wrongly accused of abuse (spouse or child). These tend to be very complex cases that only an experienced litigation team can tackle. Copps DiPaola Silverman, PLLC will conduct a thorough review of your case to determine whether you fall into this category. Please note that we only take on a limited number of these matters at one time due to the complicated nature of the cases.
