Police and civil authorities in New York City and surrounding counties take reports of domestic violence very seriously, and so does The Mandel Law Firm. Unfortunately, the system is not perfect. Without legal representation, victims of domestic assault may find it difficult to take advantage of the legal protections available. Conversely, those accused of an act of domestic violence or spousal abuse may face serious immediate consequences — prior to any determination of guilt or innocence.
At The Mandel Law Firm, we represent clients in Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island and in Nassau and Westchester counties who are facing issues of domestic violence in their household. Whether legitimate or fabricated, an allegation of child or spousal assault must be dealt with effectively and immediately.

Advocates for Victims of Domestic Violence
If you have suffered abuse at the hands of a family member, spouse or domestic partner — including stalking, harassment and the making of serious threats against you, your children or your other loved ones — it is vitally important to obtain an order of protection immediately. An order of protection can provide you with a measure of security while you — and your attorney — work to put a more permanent solution in place.
Standing Up for Those Who Have Been Falsely Accused
A false or vindictive allegation of domestic violence is an abuse of the system. It is also an abuse of the person who now has to face the potentially serious civil and criminal consequences. In order to fight a false allegation, it will almost certainly be necessary to enlist the services of a lawyer with substantial experience in these cases. Attorney Steven J. Mandel has practiced law in New York City for more than 35 years and has successfully handled a substantial number of these cases.
The domestic violence protections were created as a "shield" to protect victims. Unfortunately, they are sometimes used as a "sword" to gain an advantage in a divorce or custody proceeding. We know what to do to protect you against this abuse of the legal system.
