Domestic Violence

Susan Forgie specialises in domestic violence matters, offering expert legal advice in all areas of domestic violence and harassment

Domestic violence and harassment can be difficult to identify and understand.  It does not have to be physical abuse.  Sometimes the harassment can be in the form of veiled threats (for instance, about money), or constantly belittling someone so they lose their self respect, and even blame themselves for the abuse.

At Ferguson and Logue  we understand how difficult it can be seeking legal advice when things go wrong in a relationship.  If you are feeling threatened or abused in any way and need help you can call Susan Forgie on 028 276 63033 who will try to see you as soon as possible, often on the same day.  An initial consultation is free.  Domestic violence cases can often receive Legal Aid.  We understand that it can be very difficult to talk about, and will advise on the options.

If you decide you want to take action, we can help including making an urgent application for an injunction.  There can be situations where a person has been wrongly accused of domestic violence, and we can advise on that as well.  It may be very difficult to know what to do for the best.  We are here to help.
