Wisconsin Domestic Abuse Lawyers

We will represent either side in domestic violence proceedings, including hearings to obtain a restraining or protective order. When you hire us to protect your interests in a domestic abuse matter, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your case. If you have been the victim of abuse, we will move quickly to put measures in place to maximize your safety. We are well versed in the requirements of the statute and know how to draft documents and make arguments that show you have meet the conditions set forth in the laws.

We know from experience that allegations of domestic violence can mask a hidden agenda: efforts to gain advantage in a divorce or family law proceeding or a means to punish an ex-spouse or lover. The findings in a domestic abuse case can have a significant bearing on how custody, placement, visitation and other arrangements are set up.

If you want to prevent a restraining order from being placed on you, we will carefully review the evidence to determine whether there are ulterior motives and the extent to which they can be proven to a court. We will question all witnesses and look for any evidence that may be used to bring the credibility of the allegations into question.
