Brooklyn NY Domestic Violence Lawyers
The system is extraordinarily paternalistic and intrusive when it comes to domestic violence allegations. Prosecutors routinely ignore alleged victims’ desires to drop the charges. Judges issue orders of protection that immediately impact families’ lives and livelihoods, often on the flimsiest of allegations. But domestic violence cases are no different than any other cases – there can be no conviction unless the prosecution proves their case beyond a reasonable doubt. Stoll, Glickman and Bellina, LLP holds the prosecution to their burden of proof.
At the law firm of Stoll, Glickman & Bellina, LLP, we have extensive experience helping clients facing domestic violence, spousal abuse and harassment accusations. We fight aggressively to help you avoid a criminal conviction. When an alleged victim wants to drop charges, we know how to use that information to best represent you. We remind the prosecution that nothing about the label “domestic violence” means that our clients’ rights can be suspended.
Fighting for Your Rights
Oftentimes, the prosecution will offer programs as part of a plea bargain. While a plea bargain may be the easiest way to put a domestic violence matter behind you, a plea may still leave you with a conviction on your record. We will advise you on every aspect of an offer: what a program requires, exactly what your exposure is, and exactly what the consequences are. If the case is not likely to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, we will never push you to accept a program.
We have a track record of success in domestic violence cases. We interview your accuser and other witnesses to dismantle the case against you, piece by piece. Then we build the strongest possible defense, using all of the facts and evidence.
