Vigorous Defense Against Allegations Of Abuse And Assault
No one disputes that domestic violence is a serious issue. Victims deserve protection, and those who commit acts of violence, harassment or intimidation against those with whom they have or had a close relationship should be held accountable. Too often, however, innocent people face false or exaggerated claims of domestic violence. When that happens, those accused of such acts can see their lives upended immediately, with the loss of their families, reputations, careers and freedom all a very real possibility. If you have been charged with domestic violence, you need an experienced attorney on your side immediately.

Assertive, Experienced Protection From Severe Consequences
When the police in New York are called to deal with a domestic disturbance, they almost always arrest one of the people involved. Although this may be the only dependable way to separate the parties and prevent escalation, another common result is an unjustified criminal charge or an order of protection that will have serious consequences in your life.
At The Law Office of James E. Tyner, I take a balanced, assertive approach to defending you against a charge or conviction that can expose you to:
- A jail sentence and/or lengthy probation term
- An order of protection (restraining order) that can disrupt your family relationships
- Serious restrictions on basic rights, such as your right to possess a firearm
- Loss of your job in law enforcement, security or other fields, and a criminal record that severely limits your future prospects for employment
False Domestic Violence Allegations Are Common
There are many motivations for leveling such devastating but untruthful domestic violence charges, whether out of spite, for revenge or as a tool to gain an advantage in divorce, custody or other family law proceedings. That latter reason alone results in the unnecessary and unjust disruptions of tens of thousands of lives every year.
