Assault And Domestic Violence Defense

In New Jersey, a domestic violence restraining order can have serious implications for your life. In addition to preventing you from seeing your loved ones, a restraining order can affect your employment, right to gun ownership and many other aspects of your day-to-day activities. These orders are permanent in New Jersey and stay in place until they are vacated in court (which is rare) so it is extremely important to seek representation from an attorney with experience in family and criminal courts.

With an office that is conveniently located across from the courthouse in Mount Holly, our knowledgeable legal professionals defend clients in Burlington County and all surrounding portions of New Jersey. Our long history of working in the area makes us well-equipped to understand how the laws apply to your particular case so we can help you seek the best possible outcome.

What You Need To Know About Domestic Violence Charges

Charges of domestic violence are defensible, as many times they are filed to gain an advantage in underlying divorce or custody matters. At The Law Firm of Michael S. Rothmel, LLC, we vigorously pursue your defenses to make sure you are not the victim of a temporary restraining order filed under false pretenses. We ensure that you understand all relevant information that is vital to keeping domestic violence allegations from ruining your future, including:

  • Your defenses to allegations of domestic violence
  • What you must do to remain in compliance
  • How you can avoid additional charges that stem from violating the order
  • What charges and orders mean for your family life, employment and other situations
  • How a domestic violence order affects your life in the short and long term

If you find yourself subject to a domestic violence restraining order, do not contact the alleged victim in any way. Even if you know that the allegations are false, violating the restraining order can lead to criminal charges and other severe consequences.
