Domestic violence


Prosecutors who handle domestic violence cases vigorously pursue harsh penalties due to the high profile nature of domestic violence and the potentially dangerous outcome a lax verdict could have on the accuser’s health and safety. Some of the most common forms of domestic violence in New Jersey include:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Kidnapping
  • Criminal sexual contact
  • Harassment
  • Stalking
  • Restraining order violations

If found guilty of domestic violence, offenders face not only serious social stigma but also excessive fines, jail time and other negative repercussions. Mr. Abate defends individuals who have been accused of committing acts of domestic violence against a spouse, a former spouse, a present or former household member, the other parent of the person’s child, or a current or former boyfriend or girlfriend.
