We calculate the critical exponents for Lorentz-violating O(N) λϕ^4 scalar field theories by using two independent methods. In the first situation we renormalize a massless theory by utilizing normalization conditions. An identical task is fulfilled in the second case in a massive version of the same theory, previously renormalized in the BPHZ method in four dimensions. We show that although the renormalization constants, the β and anomalous dimensions acquire Lorentz-violating quantum
