Domestic Violence

Featured Practice Area Image

Domestic violence is an issue that affects the entire family without regard to age or gender. Whether you need an attorney to represent you to get protection or you need help because you have been accused of domestic violence, Robinson & Geraldo can help you.

If you are in a situation where your safety, or that of your children or an elderly parent is threatened, call the police first, and then call us. Let us know you have an emergency court appearance only after you ensure your own safety and that of your family

Families who suffer from domestic violence need an attorney who can give them extra help and Robinson & Geraldo has years of experience in providing it. Our attorneys have represented scores of victims of both genders as well as children whose parents have been violent. We have represented both women and men who were genuinely victimized but were too embarrassed or ashamed to ask the courts for help. Husbands and fathers can fall into this category more frequently than you might think. We are committed to a gender-neutral approach to representing domestic violence victims. Victims may be the abused or those who are falsely accused of abuse to the accuser can get an upper hand.

Unfortunately, Maryland’s and D.C.’s domestic violence laws can be used as a quick and easy way for one spouse to get rid of the other without the expense and time involved in a divorce or custody action. If this is happening to you, you can be sure that we have successfully handled many of these cases, defending those who are falsely accused.
