Protecting Yourself Against Abuse Allegations

In Florida, domestic violence accusations can create major legal problems for you. Not only will law enforcement get involved right away after an accusation is made, an injunction for protection may be filed against you, barring you from contact with your spouse and your children. You then face the challenge of trying to clear your name while aggressive prosecutors try to convince a judge of your guilt.

This is not an easy situation to be up against. I know because I've handled dozens – if not hundreds – of domestic violence cases over the last 28 years. I know the legal hurdles the law tries to put in your path. I also know how to clear these obstacles and find you the best possible outcome I can.

Domestic Violence Has Many Forms And Consequences

Any criminal offense that results in the injury or death of a family or household member at the hand of another family or household member can be considered domestic violence. This includes:

  • Assault and aggravated assault
  • Battery and aggravated battery
  • Sexual assault and its aggravated form
  • Stalking
  • Kidnapping
  • False imprisonment

Depending on the offense a person is charged with and the severity of the charge, penalties can range from a few days in jail to a conviction and the possibility of many years in prison. Even violating an injunction of protection, also referred to as a restraining order, can land a person in jail in Florida.

Prosecutors might not care about that, but I'm a lawyer who does. I will push against any deal I think is not in your best interests.
