Niles Domestic Violence Attorney
Cook County Order of Protection Lawyer
When the economy takes a downturn, it can place additional stress on a marriage that is already stressed. On occasion that stress can erupt into physical or verbal abuse. If that physical abuse turns violent, and the police are called, either the husband or wife (or domestic partner) may get arrested. If that happens, the state will typically obtain an order for protection for the alleged victim.
At the Law Offices of Janice L. Berman, we help either men or women who are either accused of or claiming domestic violence. As a general practice law firm that handles divorce and with an attorney who has focused on family law for more than twenty years, we have seen a wide range of situations in which domestic violence was charged and orders for protection issued.
Representing the Petitioner or the Respondent
Attorney Berman has represented clients in marriages with domestic violence as well as clients in troubled marriages during which false charges of violence were used to gain an advantage in proceedings.
Because we have represented both sides to these proceedings, we tend to take a practical approach to the problem. We will do what is necessary, and advise as necessary, but will also offer other help, such as referrals to social services.
The types of legal services we offer for those involved in domestic violence accusations include:
- Defense of domestic violence charges in civil court
- Obtain orders of protection for either spouse or domestic partner
- Provide referrals for social services as appropriate
- Suspend or terminate orders for protection
- Communicate with clients regularly so they always know the status of their case
