It can happen so fast. Words escalate into a loud fight. A little push. A big shove. Suddenly, the police are at your door and you are being charged with domestic violence or child abuse. What started out as a family argument ended up as a legal situation that threatens to ruin your life. You know that domestic abuse is a serious issue and you never expected to find yourself in the middle of it. Now that you are, though, you need experienced legal help to protect your rights.

I am criminal defense attorney John Garey. For more than 20 years, I have been on both sides of the spousal abuse issue. For the first 15 years of my law career, I served as a prosecutor in Kent and Sussex counties. While prosecuting hundreds of domestic abuse cases, I often realized that too many good people get themselves into a mess that they would do anything to get out of, if they could. Now, as a criminal defense attorney, I will use my skills and years of experience to help straighten things out and prevent the harsh punishments that can come with a conviction.
Domestic violence is a serious problem in this country, with millions of injuries and deaths to innocent victims every year. But you are entitled to vigorous, effective legal help right now, and I won’t judge you.
I understand how serious domestic violence is. I don’t believe that sending you to jail is the solution to the problem. I have earned respect among judges and associate district attorneys for my willingness to work closely with prosecutors to find the right solution, including authorized education programs that will set aside your conviction upon completion.
