The Harsh Reality of Domestic Violence Charges in NY

Domestic violence is defined very broadly under New York law. It encompasses not just physical violence, but harassment, stalking, threats, and other abusive behavior within certain domestic relationships.And the penalties? They’re no joke. Even a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction can lead to:

  • Up to 1 year in jail
  • Hefty fines and court fees
  • A permanent criminal record
  • A restraining order
  • Mandatory counseling programs
  • Loss of child custody/visitation rights
  • Difficulty finding employment or housing

If you’re facing felony charges, the stakes are even higher. You could be looking at years behind bars and a lifetime of stigma and lost opportunities.The bottom line? Don’t gamble with your future by trying to navigate this legal minefield alone. With so much at stake, you need a powerhouse Bronx domestic violence attorney who will stop at nothing to clear your name.

Our Battle-Tested Domestic Violence Defense Strategies

At Spodek Law Group, we leave no stone unturned in building an aggressive defense for our clients. Every case is unique, but some of the proven strategies we may employ include:

Challenging the Evidence

Domestic violence cases often boil down to a cruel game of “he said, she said.” We’ll meticulously analyze every shred of evidence, looking for holes or inconsistencies that create reasonable doubt. Falsified or exaggerated allegations? We’ll expose them. Lack of physical evidence? We’ll emphasize it.

Asserting Self-Defense

If you acted in legitimate self-defense against an abusive partner, we’ll make sure your voice is heard. New York permits reasonable force to protect yourself or others from violence – as long as we can prove you faced a real, imminent threat.

Questioning Police Procedures

Law enforcement frequently mishandles domestic violence cases by jumping to conclusions or violating protocol. If your rights were violated through unlawful searches, coerced statements, or other police misconduct, we may be able to get key evidence suppressed.

Just had my Divorce case settled 2 months ago after having a horrible experience with another firm. I couldn’t be happier with Claire Banks and Elizabeth Garvey with their outstanding professionalism in doing so with Spodek Law Group. Any time I needed questions answered they were always prompt in doing so with all my uncertainties after 30 yrs of marriage.I feel from the bottom of my heart you will NOT be disappointed with either one. Thanks a million.

Alex Zhik contacted me almost immediately when I reached out to Spodek for a consultation and was able to effectively communicate the path forward/consequences of my legal issue. I immediately agreed to hire Alex for his services and did not regret my choice. He was able to cover my case in court (with 1 day notice) and not only was he able to push my case down, he carefully negotiated a dismissal of the charge altogether. I highly recommend Spodek, and more specifically, Alex Zhik for all of your legal issues. Thanks guys!

I don’t know where to start, I can write a novel about this firm, but one thing I will say is that having my best interest was their main priority since the beginning of my case which was back in Winter 2019. Miss Claire Banks, one of the best Attorneys in the firm represented me very well and was very professional, respectful, and truthful. Not once did she leave me in the dark, in fact she presented all options and routes that could possibly be considered for my case and she reinsured me that no matter what I decided to do, her and the team will have my back and that’s exactly what happened. Not only will I be liberated from this case, also, I will enjoy my freedom and continue to be a mother to my first born son and will have no restrictions with accomplishing my goals in life. Now that’s what I call victory!! I thank the Lord, My mother, Claire, and the Spodek team for standing by me and fighting with me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am to have the opportunity to work with this team. I’m very satisfied, very pleased with their performance, their hard work, and their diligence. Thank you team!

I can't recommend Alex Zhik and Spodek Law Firm highly enough for their exceptional legal representation and personal mentorship. From the moment I engaged their services in October 2022, Alex took the time to understand my case thoroughly and provided guidance every step of the way. Alex's dedication to my case went above and beyond my expectations. His expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to achieving the best possible outcome were evident throughout the entire process. He took the time to mentor me, ensuring I understood the legal complexities involved to make informed decisions. Alex is the kind of guy you would want to have a beer with and has made a meaningful impact on me. I also want to acknowledge Todd Spodek, the leader of the firm, who played a crucial role in my case. His leadership and support bolstered the efforts of Alex, and his involvement highlighted the firm's commitment to excellence. Thanks to Alex Zhik and Todd Spodek, I achieved the outcome I desired, and I am incredibly grateful for their professionalism, expertise, and genuine care. If you're in need of legal representation, look no further than this outstanding team.

What Constitutes Domestic Violence in New York?

Domestic violence charges can stem from a wide range of alleged conduct under New York law. The key factor is that the abusive acts must occur between individuals in certain domestic relationships, such as:

  • Spouses or former spouses
  • People related by blood
  • People who have a child together
  • People who were intimate partners

Some of the most common types of domestic violence charges we see include:

Physical Violence and Assault

This covers any intentional physical contact that causes injury or places the victim in fear of being hurt. From slapping and shoving to punching and choking, these cases often result in serious assault charges.

Harassment and Stalking

Engaging in a pattern of behavior that alarms, annoys, or threatens a domestic partner can lead to harassment or stalking charges. This may include excessive calls/texts, unwanted visits, or other intimidating conduct.

Criminal Mischief and Property Damage

Intentionally damaging a domestic partner’s property, such as breaking household items or keying their car, can constitute criminal mischief.


Strangulation or obstruction of breathing/blood circulation is considered a violent felony offense in New York with severe penalties.

Violating an Order of Protection

If a restraining order or order of protection is in place, any violation – even minor ones – can result in criminal charges.No matter what specific charges you’re facing, our Bronx domestic violence lawyers have the skills and experience to develop a robust defense strategy tailored to your unique situation.
