We provide a tenacious, aggressive defense at every step of the way. We will never counsel you to accept a plea agreement unless we think it is the best possible result to your case.

At trial, we will force the prosecution to prove every element of their case, and will do everything we can to obtain a dismissal or acquittal.

Building a Strong and Effective Defense
Our firm will closely examine the evidence and the events leading to your arrest. When necessary, we can work with a private investigator who can interview witnesses and develop other evidence. We will look into the possibility of self-defense, justification or any other mitigating circumstances. Depending on the facts of the case, we will move to suppress any illegally-obtained evidence whenever possible. Bentoff & Duber will work to build a strong defense that is designed to protect your rights and preserve your freedom.
Defense of Domestic Violence Charges
Many domestic violence charges come about during the course of a divorce or child custody fight, when one party seeks to obtain an advantage by making false or exaggerated claims. Do not allow these allegations to go unchallenged. If convicted, you will have a criminal record. You can lose your child custody and visitation rights. And most importantly, you may go to jail.
Bentoff & Duber will aggressively defend you at all stages of the legal process. We will seek to present evidence in your favor and challenge the allegations against you. If possible, we will try to enlist the complainant in our defense effort, letting them know the potential charges for filing a false claim against you.
We represent people in civil protection order hearings as well as those accused of criminal domestic violence charges.
