How We Can Help You

At Kaplan Marino, we take all steps necessary to investigate allegations of domestic violence. In appropriate cases, we contact local law enforcement or prosecutors to ensure our clients’ rights are being protected and that the facts surrounding the incidents are clear. In many cases, we get our clients office hearings in lieu of formal charges.

If domestic violence charges are filed, we use cutting-edge strategies to aggressively obtain results that reach our clients’ objectives. While we always thoroughly prepare for a jury trial, we also explore lesser charges or alternative sentences that prevent many of the collateral consequences that go along with these convictions, along with keeping legal fees at a minimum.
