Domestic Violence Attorneys In Albany, NY
Just as the phrase implies, Domestic Violence occurs in the home. Some arrests are due to fraudulent accusations because the spouse wants the other out of the home, while others are genuine. In either case, we can provide compassionate support, immediate legal assistance, and help when it comes to your specific situation.
Domestic Violence throughout New York State has rises in the last few years at alarming rates. The best advice we can give you at this moment is; if your being abused by your spouse or partner, leave as soon as possible and contact the authorities. The term “Domestic Violence” could imply physical as well as emotional abuse that occurs at home. Much of which leads to separations or is a result of a partner attempting to separate. At RCM Law offices, our experienced lawyers are incredibly resourceful and fast acting when it comes to obtaining something known as an Order of Protection.
An Order of Protection or “Restraining Order” is designed to prevent the person accused of abusing you from committing certain acts. In most cases, it’s staying away from the person that filed for the order. Unfortunately, we live in an unjust world and have been on both sides of the defense. The same person that comes in at the beginning of the week to file for an Order of Protection, has already changed his or her mind two days later. Whatever the case may be, we may not always agree with our clients, but we do the work necessary to protect them.
In the event that someone is actively trying to leave a physically abusive partner, we will work quickly, diligently and in a quiet manner to help you escape the nightmare you’ve been living in. Just like New York State’s court system, human life and activity are complex. There may be minors living at home witnessing violence or are victims in addition to you. We know it’s incredibly difficult and the odds of leaving may seem insurmountable, but all that we ask is that you take a look at your children. They are suffering alongside you. Your partner may promise or swear to never hit you or abuse you again, but this is incredibly far from the truth. The cycle will continue until something awful and permanent occurs.
Our attorneys that handle Domestic Violence cases at RCM Law offices are incredibly passionate about the clients we take on. With every client, we’d like to think that we inherit your problems too. We can help you escape the cycle of abuse, you just need to make a simple phone call and we’ll be more than happy to give you a completely free consultation without any sort of pressure tactics.

Handling Cases from the Other Side
As seasoned lawyers who’s main specialty consists of divorce as well as criminal law, we see many cases where a spouse is falsely accused of abuse. This is done for many reasons and being in a high pressure situation between two spouses, it’s tough to judge why the accusations was made. Sometimes people that have no history of violence or aggression suddenly find themselves in the heat of the moment and arguing begins. This could or could not escalate into something entirely different, the police are called and a spouse is accused of abuse. If you feel that you’ve been falsely accused, we are also here to defend your rights and civil liberties. We don’t want to see anyone hurt from either side. Unfortunately as a fact, we’ve seen and heard all too often the rescinding of charges from a spouse days later. We are here to provide the proper criminal defense as well as provide any advice we can regarding divorce should this be the end result. RCM Law Offices are on your side.
