Domestic Violence

Minneapolis Domestic Violence Lawyer

Helping to Avoid Heated High-Conflict Divorces and Separations

Studies indicate that at least one in four women experience domestic abuse. Men can also be victims of domestic violence. Leading up to a divorce, emotions can get out of hand, sometimes resulting in physical violence.

Domestic abuse victims should seek an attorney’s help immediately for an order for protection or other safety measures. Spousal abuse will have a major effect on the outcome of a family law case. At Burns Law Office, we are known for our experienced, effective and compassionate domestic violence representation.

The attorneys at our law firm help ensure that domestic violence victims are protected through relocation, protection orders and restraining orders. We secure access to needed social services. We do this with compassion, care and capability — and without judgment.
