Domestic Violence cases have been on the rise since the 1980’s. Whether between husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend, siblings or other domestic partners nearly all police departments have acted quickly to stop assaultive behavior and to charge crimes in such cases. Sometimes the police err on the side of caution to stop perceived violence, even if no such violence has occurred.

I, Sam Konikow, have been defending these cases since 1978…..! I will defend and deliver a successful result to each and every Domestic Violence defendant !
