Domestic Violence
Mike Dowd and Clergy Abuse

Domestic Violence not only scars the body, it scars the soul. In the past thirty years I have defended more than twenty women who fought back against their abusers and have consulted on hundreds of others around the country. I have represented more battered women in homicide cases than any other lawyer in the United States.

In 1991, I was appointed by Governor Mario Cuomo as the Director of Special Projects for the New York State Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence. In that role I founded the Pace University Battered Woman’s Center at Pace University School of Law.

In addition to the articles I have published, I have developed training programs for lawyers teaching them how to represent the victims of domestic violence.

The objective in domestic violence is always to prevent a trial but at the same time having the capacity to go to trial. As a highly skilled litigator in this area, I am able to successfully combine effective trial technique while maintaining sensitivity to battered women and the injuries done to them.
