Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges

Kelton & Teichner is a criminal defense and family law firm, which means our lawyers are well-positioned to handle domestic violence cases. These charges are unique because of the way they often spill over to family law. They correspond with orders of protection. They may be tied to a divorce or lead to a divorce. With more than 30 years of experience handling all of these issues, we are prepared to help you through this, no matter how complex it seems.

We handle cases involving husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, siblings and others involved in domestic relationships accused of this crime in Queens County or Nassau County.

Assault and Domestic Violence

Criminal domestic violence cases typically involve an assault and harassment charges of some kind. Being charged with assault does not necessarily require physical contact. Even the threat of physical contact can lead to this charge. Regardless of the specifics of the accusations, a conviction can have a serious impact on your life. Fines and incarceration aside, you will have a mark on your criminal record that is likely to deter employers from hiring you, among other things. Our attorneys' goal is to keep your record clean.

Defense Against Orders of Protection

If you have been accused of domestic abuse, it is likely that the alleged victim will seek an order of protection against you, if he or she has not already. This can lead to you being kicked out of the house and cut off from your children. It is entirely separate from the criminal charge of domestic violence. We handle this aspect of your case.
