While my primary practice area is Family Law, there is some spillover into other areas. Through the years, I have learned there are just some things you do not say to law enforcement.

5.  I did it!

4.  I only had a couple.

3.  Trying to meet your quota?

2.  Oink, oink.

1.  I called you because he stole my marijuana pipe.

How to Leave a Bad Situation.

It’s all to common that I encounter someone in an abusive relationship.  The getting out is the hard part.

It’s usually best to prepare to leave. If possible;

  • Make sure the Children are safe.
  • See a Lawyer.
  • Have some cash.
  • Get valuables, papers and irreplaceables.
  • Get out.

Sometimes it’s not possible to prepare.

  • Get Children
  • Get Out
  • Call the Police
  • IN this Order.

Domestic Violence is real, knows no class boundaries and happens.

Don’t accept it.
