Allegations of child abuse or spousal abuse can create civil and criminal consequences that are hard to undo. Domestic violence and alleged domestic violence are taken seriously by Illinois courts, and they can affect everything from child custody to security clearance at your job to your ability to own a firearm.
If you have been abused, threatened, harassed, stalked or otherwise mistreated by your spouse or partner, it is important for you to be safe. An experienced attorney can give you practical advice and help you take the necessary steps to keep an unsafe person away from you and your children. Our firm is highly experienced in advocating for victims of domestic violence.
If you have been accused of behavior that can be categorized as domestic violence, it is important for you to know and protect your legal rights.

Our firm can provide it, right now.
Recognizing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship are often the first steps toward a victim’s freedom. The next step is getting help. Nobody should have to live in fear of the person they share their life with.
