Representing You in Family and Criminal Court

Domestic violence or domestic assault charges typically involve hearings held in two separate courts, family court and criminal court. The family court will usually issue an order of protection, barring you from contact with your family. You do not have to be present at the hearing to have a protection order issued against you. That is why it is essential to have a Brooklyn criminal law attorney at your side during every step of this complicated process.

A criminal hearing may take place after the family court hearing. Criminal courts will often defer to the judgment of the family court. Having The Law Office of Samuel Karliner at the beginning of the entire court process can help increase your chances of getting the family court order and/or the criminal court order modified.
