New Jersey Criminal & Domestic Violence Defense Lawyers

Experienced Newark Defense Attorneys Who Will Protect Your Rights

While all crimes are taken seriously in the State of New Jersey, there are exceptionally severe penalties in place for crimes involving domestic violence. Being charged with a criminal offense as a result of a domestic violence or other related incident means that you may face permanent removal from your home, jail time, hefty fines and financial obligations, and exposure to a number of other collateral consequences.

If you have pending criminal charges as a result of your involvement in a domestic violence or other related incident, it is imperative that you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer who will protect your rights and put you in a position to achieve the best possible outcome. The criminal defense team at The Tormey Law Firm, LLC aggressively defends clients throughout New Jersey who face serious criminal charges, including domestic violence charges.

We are ready to fight for you. Contact our firm now and let us stand up for your rights against the criminal charges you are facing.

Our criminal defense attorneys have successfully handled thousands of cases in New Jersey in Superior Court (indictable/felony level offenses), as well as Municipal Court (disorderly persons/misdemeanor level offenses). While we can often use our negotiation skills to bring many of our cases to an efficient and successful resolution before trial, we are battle-tested lawyers who have the experience and knowledge to take any case to trial if necessary.

Hackensack Domestic Assault Attorneys

If you or a loved one has been charged with a domestic violence offense in New Jersey, you may face proceedings in two separate courts. A person who makes allegations of domestic violence can seek a temporary restraining order (TRO) in Family Court. If the State decides to file criminal charges, you will be prosecuted in the Criminal Court.

These are two separate and distinct proceedings. It is possible to have the criminal charge dismissed but a final restraining order (FRO) issued and vice versa. Also, a violation of a TRO or FRO can result in an additional criminal charge for Contempt of Court.

We understand the nuances that differentiate a true act of domestic violence from a heated argument between domestic partners that may have gotten out of hand. We know how to bring these facts to life in your defense.
