If you've been charged with domestic violence, there are two things you need to know. First of all, if it hasn't happened already, there will likely be a protective order taken out on you. It's going to derail your life, possibly for a long time if you don't take action now. Second, prosecutors rarely relent in these cases, even if the victim doesn't want to press charges. You're going to have to fight, and you're going to need help. That's what we're here for.


These are not your typical criminal law cases. For one thing, a domestic violence assault charge comes with different penalties than a simple assault charge. For another, there is the issue of the protective order or restraining order. Beyond that, there is the fact that many of these charges are either offshoots of an ongoing family law matter such as a child custody dispute, or they lead into a divorce. You can benefit from having a lawyer on your side who understands these charges from both a criminal law and family law angle.

At Lloyd & Associates, we have more than a decade of experience in criminal defense and family law. We will fight the criminal charge of domestic violence. We will fight the restraining order. We will work to prevent you from being distanced from your children and your home. We will also handle your divorce or family law case, or we will work with your family law attorney if appropriate. We will get you through this.


Our knowledge of family law also means we understand the types of situations that often lead to accusations of domestic violence. We know that, during a divorce, one spouse may falsely accuse the other in order to gain the upper hand. Did your spouse make a false allegation against you in order to get a better outcome in a child custody dispute? We are a law firm that cherishes honesty. We work to bring the truth to light and fight dishonest allegations that not only jeopardize you and your family, but the entire justice system as well.

about our firm.

Thank you for taking my case at the tail end and repairing the damage the previous lawyer had done. The detailed time you spent in preparation for my trial was impressive and appreciated, I just wish I had found you right from the start!

Your professionalism and advice made a very stressful situation manageable, thank you. And most importantly, thank you for your genuine care in getting me more time with my son.



Thanks, the girls are very happy.

— Pleased client,


Thank you to both of you for helping J. and myself through this trying time in our lives. When J. called to tell me about the court session, I expected the worst even though he wasn’t in jail. But he told me how you had talked to the Judge and worked out a deal. I think this outcome will be better…as it will also give him a chance to continue to learn and grow from this trial in his life. Thank you both for your dedication to helping people.


Thank you so much, I understand by this letter, that their attorneys will file a release of judgement soon. Thank you again for all your hard work!

S. H.

Thank you and your staff for all your hard work! We rocked it!

J. & V. R.

Thank you so much for playing such a large part in [our child’s] adoption. Your kind words brought tears to our eyes and it meant the world to have you there for the big day. Can’t wait to meet your wonderful wife and family.



This is long overdue…. You have spent so much time with me on the phone, emails, explaining things to me. You are so kind and patient. Thank you for everything you have done for me during my time of hardship. You are the best!

Most sincerely,

M. H.

It was a pleasure working with you on the mediation yesterday, and I appreciate you completing the mediation when my client was not prepared to pay any additional mediation fees…I thought you did an excellent job as mediator, and I would not hesitate to utilize your services or recommend you as an attorney in the future.

J. B. R.

Thank you for all you have done for me, my children, and husband. I am grateful for all your efforts and victories on our behalf.

With much love,


I wanted to personally thank you for all of your work on our file, standing beside us at court, and looking after [our new son] when he needed it most. It’s good to have people on your side. You are amazing! You’ll always be a part of our forever family. Thank you.


Thank you for everything. I am very satisfied with the work you’ve done as I compare it to the lack of work that was done with my previous lawyer most recently.

Thank you so much for all of your continued support and for always having our back! We will forever be grateful!

R. B. & T. D.

Thank you for being there for us, as always. Merry Christmas.


I can’t thank you enough for helping with the case. I am ecstatic about what you were able to accomplish, and I hope to continue the partnership going forward.


Thank you again,
