Types of Cases We Can Help With

We work on a wide variety of cases, including those involving

  • self-defense/defense of others;

  • coercion and duress;

  • crimes of omission (such as allegedly failing to protect one's children from a batterer's violence);

  • charges of parental kidnapping or custodial interference when an abused parent fled with her child(ren) to protect herself and/or her children;

  • situations where the history and impact of abuse help to explain a defendant's behavior and/or rebut the mens rea element of the crime;

  • other charges directly related to experiences of being battering.
