Suffolk County Domestic Violence Attorney

Domestic Violence Attorney in Bohemia, NY

New York State is proactive and aggressive towards the subject of domestic violence. Over the years, almost every state has revisited domestic violence laws to protect the rights of the victim and help them get the help they need. New York is no exception. With the employment of The Family Protection and Domestic Violence Intervention Act of 1994, New York revolutionized the way the state handles the issue by providing more aggressive law enforcement and criminal justice intervention, protecting more victims and giving them the ability to take control of their lives. Now, victims of domestic abuse can immediately protect themselves and take legal action to hold perpetrators responsible. On the other side of the coin, because New York is so proactive in its protection, there are many people out there who exploit these aggressive laws, accusing innocent people of terrible acts to impact court decisions, like child custody. If you are the victim of domestic violence, our firm is here to help you. If you have been accused of domestic violence, call our firm to fight for your rights and future.

Domestic Violence

What is domestic violence?

Unfortunately, domestic violence is still a major problem in the United States. Though there are laws in place to protect victims, the issue still stands. Domestic violence is not limited to any ethnicity, age, sex, religion, or socioeconomic status. It does not discriminate; anyone can be a victim or an abuser. Domestic violence is not just physical abuse and does not always have physical signs. Domestic violence can be demeaning, controlling actions through coercion. It can include sexual, economic, and emotional abuse. Isolation, emotional persecution, terrorization, sexual exploitation, and other situations can be considered domestic violence. Though it can be more readily identified through physical signs, domestic violence goes far beyond physical abuse and can be equally harmful.


One can protect themselves immediately through an Order of Protection. If you need to protect yourself after an act of domestic violence, you can request an Order of Protection with the local family or criminal court or as an addition to a divorce case. The purpose of an Order of Protection is to keep the abuser at bay, ban said person from the home, force the party to adhere to the child custody and support arrangement, and/or force them to surrender firearms. If you need help, call the authorities immediately. Contact our firm soon after.

Wrongly accused?

New York is aptly aggressive towards domestic violence. One of the downsides is how easy a person can exploit these laws for one’s own gain. Anyone can request administrative intervention.

What Our Clients Are Saying

I hired Susan to represent me in a divorce matter where I was fighting for custody and to limit my wife's equitable share of our assets. I won custody of our son, kept the marital residence, kept my professional practice, kept my building and paid less than half to my wife. This was after a long-term marriage. She could persuade the court that equitable is not equal and sometimes the man does deserve to win!

‐ Dave

I first must say that I had been represented by two prior attorneys both of whom had simply taken my money and left me nothing to show for it in my custody case. They kept telling me what they were doing for me but I found out they were lying. Susan on the other hand had gotten me temporary custody and support for my children and myself within two months of hiring her. I cannot say enough about her.

‐ Craig

After talking to a few other attorneys, I hired Susan to represent me in my divorce and custody dispute. I was reluctant to go with her because she was the cheapest out of all the other attorneys I met with, but I'm so glad I did. I am 100% positive no one else would have done such a great job with my case as Susan and her staff. Her work is quality, her staff is reliable and her character is honorable. There...

‐ Linda

I had a very difficult case where I had already burned through two attorneys who were unable to get me custody of my children and complete my divorce. Susan was able to rapidly work out an agreement and not let it just malinger on like my previous experiences. She was also considerate of my financial situation unlike all of the other lawyers I had spoken to. I highly recommend her if you want complete and caring service with an in-depth knowledge of...
