New Jersey Domestic Violence Attorney

Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer in Haddonfield, NJ Provides Defense of Domestic Violence Cases in Camden County, Burlington County, Gloucester County, and Throughout South Jersey

Domestic violence cases can involve criminal charges, and many involve restraining orders. At The Law Office of Jill R. Cohen, I represent defendants accused of domestic violence in municipal court and criminal or superior court. I am experienced New Jersey domestic violence attorney Jill R. Cohen, and I understand the impact that domestic violence accusations can have on your life. You may be unable to go home, see your children, or maintain employment. I work to see that my clients are protected in every aspect of their case, while I pursue a resolution to the situation that allows them to move forward with their lives whenever possible.

Although the charges are serious, knowing how to defend against charges associated with domestic violence cases such as aggravated assault and simple assault helps my clients navigate the system and often results in complete dismissals. I have even been successful in defending clients against false claims of rape and other types of sexual assault allegations.

My relationship with the county prosecutors, as well as my extensive experience as a New Jersey criminal defense attorney, allows me to get the best results possible for my clients in domestic violence cases. For example, I once represented someone who, in a drunken state, bit off a piece of his wife’s ear. With the help of very experienced private investigators, I was able to get the charges dismissed and help the client avoid jail and a permanent criminal record.

New Jersey Bail Reform Laws

Under the new bail reform statutes in New Jersey, the initial charge sometimes results in incarceration. That is why it is so important to obtain a New Jersey domestic violence attorney who has experience with the new bail reform procedures in NJ. I can save you long periods of incarceration in jail while you wait for the resolution of your case. Recently, I was able to negotiate with the prosecutor to have my client, who was charged with several first-degree crimes, released from jail after just one night.

If someone you know has been charged with a crime – even if it will eventually be heard in Municipal Court – it is important to arrange a telephone conversation with me right away. I can make a visit to the jail and immediately start negotiating with the prosecutor. A recent case of mine involved a client facing allegations of aggravated sexual assault. I was able to get those very serious charges dismissed. Many times, the goal is to get felony-level charges reduced to a disorderly persons offense so that they can be taken out of the criminal system and heard in local Municipal Courts. Once the case is in municipal court, because of my familiarity with the Municipal Prosecutors and the system, I am often successful in getting these matters dismissed entirely.

Restraining Orders in New Jersey

A big part of my practice is defending individuals who are served with a temporary restraining order (TRO) to be heard by a judge in the family division of the Superior Courts. It is essential to have a strong defense against these temporary restraining orders. If a final restraining order (FRO) is entered because you didn’t seek counsel, you could be affected for the rest of your life.

A restraining order may prevent you from obtaining many different kinds of jobs. Moreover, permanent restraining orders can stay on your record forever. Knowing how to beat a final restraining order can change the rest of your life. Because I have tried numerous jury and non-jury trials in New Jersey, I know how to defend against the entry of a final restraining order. I am not afraid to tackle any case or to vigorously cross-examine the plaintiffs who frequently bring baseless claims in domestic violence cases.

In our legal system in New Jersey, law enforcement often files charges based on no evidence at all. They bring very serious charges without a shred of evidence. However, even a baseless charge can result in incarceration for long periods of time. These charges have to be defended vigorously. The sooner I get involved, the better the outcome will be for you. My goal is to keep my clients out of jail, even if they face serious charges.

Attorney Jill is an exceptional lawyer, very knowledgeable and with a good heart. She saved my brother from two serious cases filed by his ex. Attorney Cohen was able to downgrade the two very serious charges to less serious charges, into cases being dismissed! We highly, highly recommend her. In addition, her fees are reasonable.

We used Jill Cohen for the first time this October. Great attorney, she helped my boyfriend immensely with his case. We will be calling her again without hesitation for anything we may need in the future. Very affordable as well.
