A Lawyer’s Opinion on Abuse


I am a husband and a father to 3 beautiful children. I am also a lawyer. I am a family and divorce lawyer and I deal with cases ranging from divorce to domestic abuse. Personally and professionally, there’s not much protection for women and children from domestic abuse and sexual abuse. You hear and read about it on the news every day and it seems like the government has no control over this. They can establish protocols to deal with the aftermath of the abuse but not so much as doing something to prevent it from happening in the first place.

I think that what the country needs is more awareness about abuse in all forms. As a lawyer, I find myself dealing with answers of clients who say that “they’re just dealing with it so they can keep their families together”. It’s a terrible answer and I think that they should be presented with options. Options like a community centre for reporting abuse or a support system for both women and children. Quite frankly, I would do something if it were up to me, but there’s only so much that I can do.

On my end, I tell my clients to seek professional help at the first instance of abuse.
