Legal Help For Domestic Violence Victims

The Law Offices of Nancy M. Martinez is dedicated to helping victims of domestic violence, regardless of whether the abuse inflicted was verbal, financial, sexual or physical, or a combination of these.

We understand that your decision to finally get out of an abusive relationship is complicated by many factors, such as financial necessity, religious/cultural tenets and your desire to keep the family together for your children. Domestic violence victims who stand up against abuse and their abusers have our respect and full support. Our goal is to support you, educate you and strengthen your innate knowledge and resolve that you and your children deserve better and no longer have to live in fear.

When you and your children have been abused or are in danger — and you are at risk of losing your hard-earned assets — you need a lawyer who stands ready to fight for you and your rights.

Fighting For And Protecting Victims Of Sexual Abuse

At The Law Offices of Nancy M. Martinez, we have experience dealing with issues of sexual abuse of adults and children. When you need a restraining order, we help you obtain or renew the order that requires your abuser to physically stay away from you for a certain amount of time, usually one to five years or longer. In order to protect your children from further abuse, we vigorously pursue sole physical custody for you.

Working closely with police, prosecutors and child protective services, we help ensure that all crimes are investigated and appropriate legal actions pursued. In order to help you and your family heal and rebuild your lives without violence, we guide you to various public and private resources that offer real assistance.
