Passaic County NJ Domestic Violence Lawyer
Restraining Order Attorney with Offices in Paterson, New Jersey
The New Jersey State Legislature passed the Prevention of Domestic Violence Act of 1991 to help police and prosecutors convict those who are guilty of domestic abuse. While the intent behind the law is well-meaning, problems arise when the laws designed to protect victims of domestic violence are interpreted too broadly.
Alissa D. Hascup is a criminal defense lawyer who understands the nuances that differentiate a true act of domestic violence from a heated argument between domestic partners that may have gotten out of hand. She knows how to bring these facts to life in your defense so that false accusations do not result in a trip to jail and a criminal conviction that has a lifetime worth of consequences.
