Maryland Family Law Firm Recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month

ROCKVILLE, Maryland—This October, Fait & DiLima, LLP recognizes Domestic Violence Awareness Month and the importance of raising awareness about this devastating, pervasive issue. Domestic violence affects families throughout the United States, including Maryland. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, 34.4 percent of Maryland women and 28.8 percent of Maryland men experience intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner rape, and/or intimate partner stalking.

With more than 100 years of collective experience in family law cases, the domestic violence attorneys at Fait & DiLima, LLP provide their clients with compassionate support, counseling, and knowledgeable legal representation. Their website lists domestic violence resources to help victims understand their rights and options.

“Although October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we urge everyone to remain vigilant and aware of signs of abuse you may see in family, friends, and acquaintances,” says Managing Partner Marjorie G. DiLima. “The Maryland statistics demonstrate that domestic violence affects men and women far too often. If you’re dealing with an abusive partner, current or former spouse, a person connected to you through blood, marriage, or adoption, or someone with whom you share a child, please seek help and legal support. We have helped many clients break free from abusive situations and restart their lives.”

“We are committed to helping families affected by domestic violence,” Partner Dorothy R. Fait adds. “We understand the unique challenges that victims of domestic violence face and help domestic violence victims find the resources they need to protect themselves and their families. During Domestic Violence Awareness Month, we encourage  everyone to take a stand and support victims in their community.”
