Leon County Domestic Assault Defense Lawyers Working for You

Every domestic violence charge is fact specific. Your ex may have falsely accused you of child abuse to gain an upper hand in child custody arrangements. Or, you may be surprised to learn you are facing domestic violence charges after simply having a verbal argument with your spouse.

Our law firm's criminal defense attorneys include former prosecutors and a former police officer. We understand firsthand the steps law enforcement is likely taking in developing a case against you. We will take every measure possible to protect your constitutional rights.

If law enforcement threw you in jail before even conducting an investigation, we will pursue a dismissal based on a violation of your constitutional rights. We will also conduct our own investigation into the circumstances against you.

If any neighbors or adult children witnessed the altercation, we will interview them to try and uncover any holes or contradictory information in the alleged victim's story. We are also prepared to review any medical records to understand if any of the wounds were self-inflicted. Our defense attorneys will fight for a restraining order to be lifted and the charges dropped based on a lack of evidence.
