The state of New York takes domestic abuse cases seriously. If police are called to your home and find evidence of abuse, somebody is going to jail that night, usually the man. Drawing upon the strategic legal knowledge and trial skills gained as a prosecutor in Brooklyn's Felony Domestic Violence Court, Attorney Wilson LaFaurie has successfully represented numerous clients charged with a variety of crimes.
- Aggravated harassment
- Assault and attempted assault
- Violation of orders of protection
Protecting Your Rights & Your Future
One of the first courts established to deal with family violence was the Felony Domestic Violence Court in Brooklyn in 1996. Attorney Wilson LaFaurie was the prosecutor in that domestic violence court. Since that time, he has successfully defended more than 1,200 individuals charged with offenses such as aggravated harassment, menacing, assault, violations of restraining orders, and attempted assaults.
A domestic abuse conviction will result in a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life. That is why getting experienced representation from a criminal defense attorney who knows how to protect your rights and your future is essential.
If you are convicted of domestic violence, you could face:
- Up to a year in jail
- A fine of up to $1,000
- Increased punishments if other crimes were committed at the time of your arrest
The good news is that there are defenses against the allegations. You are not a criminal just because someone else says you are. In the meantime, do not make any statements to police without a lawyer present. While you may feel like clarifying your position to police, their job is to obtain evidence that will convict you.
