At Garner Law Firm, LLC, the victims of domestic violence as well as those wrongfully accused of committing acts of domestic abuse can secure the legal advice, representation and support necessary to navigate the legal process. With a personal and dedicated approach, attorney Curtis Garner provides the information clients need to feel empowered and take necessary steps to protect themselves.

Overlapping Cases Require A Lawyer Who Understands Both Sides

Oftentimes, a domestic violence case overlaps with a family law dispute. Couples may be separating because of threatening or violent behavior in the home, or in other cases, one party may use claims of domestic abuse as leverage to achieve a more favorable outcome when seeking child custody or marital assets.

Domestic violence is also not exclusive to married couples or families. If a live-in boyfriend, girlfriend, or simply a friend residing in the home intimidates or otherwise compromises the safety of others in the home, it's important to take legal action.

More than just physical violence, domestic abuse can also include:

  • Making threats over the phone, in person, via email or other media
  • Stalking
  • Harassment
  • Intimidation
  • Sexual abuse
  • Mental as well as physical abuse

Whether helping to secure an order for protection or defending your rights against a restraining order, Mr. Garner will clearly explain what you are up against, the potential effects of pursuing a protective order and outline a strategy for helping you move forward.
