        Mr. Ranzenhofer and his attorneys were great! My case was handled quickly and I got a great result – $300,000. I fell at my doctor’s office, so I knew it was a hard case. Mr. Ranzenhofer developed a strategy that got me a great result. I highly recommend Mr. Ranzenhofer and his team of attorneys.

        We were treated in a respectful, professional and helpful manner while preparing our wills, healthcare proxies and power of attorney. Mr. Friedman took as much time as we needed to answer all of our questions and concerns. His staff was friendly and efficient. We highly recommend him.

        I consulted with Justin Friedman in an effort to obtain reimbursement following damage to my personal property. Justin was diligent, tenacious, professional, and clearly dedicated to assisting me, all of which led to a very positive outcome. I was very impressed with his work and I highly recommend his office.

        Rochester Domestic Violence LawyersFor a long time, our domestic violence laws required that the victim proactively file charges against the family’s breadwinner. This put battered, financially dependent family members in an unreasonably difficult situation and left many family members unprotected.

        Clearly this was not in the best interest of many Rochester families. However the new approach, adopted by the state, often leaves those unfairly charged with domestic violence in an unreasonable situation. As experienced Rochester domestic violence lawyers, it is our belief, the pendulum has swung a bit too far in the direction of “family protection”.

        For instance, when someone is charged with domestic violence, the accused is typically removed from his or her family residence with an order of protection. The family may be forced to maintain two residences for several months until the order of protection is removed, even if the initial conflict was created by a non–violent situation. Often, the person accused with domestic violence is not allowed to have access to his or her children for parenting time. This can cause considerable emotional and financial problems for family members.

        The Rochester domestic violence lawyers at Friedman & Ranzenhofer, know that allegations of domestic violence are often used as leverage in divorces, custody battles, or maybe just for effect in an argument. Quite often, the person making the allegation has no idea what the legal effects are, or that it would create such a stressful situation for the entire family and the family’s finances.

        We deal with domestic violence cases all the time. Typically, the initial goal of a client, charged with domestic violence, involves getting the order of protection removed. This is often the goal of of the spouse who initially made the complaint, as well. The trouble is the court’s goal of family protection. In Rochester, it can be difficult to convince the local courts and prosecutors to let go of a domestic violence case. Our attorneys work with our clients to determine first what the family’s immediate needs are. Then we put a plan together to best handle the situation.
