Domestic Violence Defense Attorney


Unfortunately, domestic violence accusations are often used to gain a stronger position in a custody battle over children. If you believe such charges are being wrongfully pursued, contact our attorneys immediately. We will take the necessary steps in attempting to expose these motives of the alleged victim which can prevent the filing of the charges altogether.


When victims report domestic violence, law enforcement will usually question the parties involved and any witnesses. Although domestic battery or assault are misdemeanor offenses, those charges can be enhanced if there are aggravating circumstances present such as prior domestic violence convictions or if a minor was the victim.

In Florida, people who are convicted of domestic violence face numerous criminal penalties such as:

  • Imprisonment
  • Monetary Fines
  • Probation
  • Court-Ordered Counseling
  • Community Service

Additionally, convicted offenders may be subject to conditions that will prohibit them from entering their homes or making contact with victims. Additionally, domestic crimes may result in the defendant not being permitted to purchase or own a firearm.  A domestic violence plea could also prevent an individual from obtaining a concealed weapon permit or cause the revocation of the permit.


The best thing a person can do after being charged with domestic violence is to hire a knowledgeable attorney. An attorney can question evidence presented against the accused offender, interview involved parties, fight to secure the person’s release on a reasonable bond, negotiate criminal charges, and protect the person’s constitutional rights.
