“At a time of year when families come together and spend a lot of time in each others’ company, this is a timely reminder that anyone can be affected by domestic violence: young or old, rich or poor,” comments family lawyer and mediator Rebekah Gershuny at Collins Solicitors.

“Fortunately most people don’t have to think about what to do in the event of such abuse, but it takes considerable courage both to admit what is happening and to start to get help. Protective Court Orders are available and Collins Solicitors is able to offer advice through Legal Aid for those in abusive relationships who need help.”
