Connecticut Domestic Violence Attorneys

Meet with Clients in a Safe and Comfortable Environment

If you are the victim of domestic violence or have been accused, either rightly or wrongly, we invite you to meet with us to openly discuss the domestic violence situation. Everything you say to us will remain confidential.

We have been married for 46 years and understand how difficult marriages can be at times - we will not judge you, so you can feel comfortable sharing your issues.

Legal Team Evaluates Long-Term Situation

With the legal support of Swerdloff & Swerdloff, you gain the benefit of three perspectives. We each analyze the evidence individually and then analyze it as a team to effectively evaluate the situation.

For example, frequently in a domestic violence situation, a stay-away order is issued by a trial court prohibiting an individual from contacting a spouse for six months and requiring that the prohibited party stay away from the family residence. As a husband-and-wife legal team, we analyze whether or not this stay-away order will help the family over the long-term. If the order is an obstruction to the family, preventing them from working through the situation, we work to have the order vacated.

When representing individuals charged with domestic violence, we analyze whether or not anger management classes would be valuable. We examine the situation holistically, working for an overall solution, not a "quick fix solution" that may quickly fail.

As an experienced criminal defense attorney, Mark Swerdloff has represented clients in almost every court in Connecticut. He has tried both court and jury cases throughout the state. He knows which courts are receptive to alternative dispute resolutions, such as anger management classes.
