Domestic violence is one of the most sensitive legal issues under family law. Studies show that the majority of domestic abuse cases go unreported for reasons such as fear of retaliation, or apprehension about what people might think. At the Law Offices of Donald P. Schweitzer, we are advocates for the prevention of domestic abuse and have helped countless victims obtain protection under the law. We also realize that many accusations of domestic violence and abuse are made out of spite. Therefore, our skilled legal team is also prepared to provide defense against any wrongful allegations.
