Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence Lawyer Pensacola

Domestic violence crimes are treated much more harshly than similar offenses in Pensacola and the rest of Florida. Under Florida’s law, domestic violence refers to any type of assault, battery, sexual assault, stalking, kidnapping, emotional abuse, false imprisonment, sexual battery, or a different kind of criminal offense involving aggressive behavior toward another member of the same household, a member formerly of the same household, or someone with whom the defendant has a child in common.  

If you have been charged with a domestic violence crime, you should seek the immediate help of a domestic violence attorney. When you retain the services of the Pensacola domestic violence lawyers at Florida Criminal Defense Legal Group, PLLC, you can rest assured that we will explore all options and recommend a solid defense strategy.

Domestic Violence

The Most Common Types of Pensacola, FL Domestic Violence

If you have been arrested for domestic violence, your livelihood, freedom, and reputation are at stake. While you may enjoy the presumption of innocence that the United States Constitution guarantees, both the police and prosecutors will work hard to win a conviction. 

At this stage, contacting one of our experienced Pensacola domestic violence attorneys is vital, or you may risk jail, fines, and a criminal history. Seek help from the Florida Criminal Defense Legal Group, PLLC today to build a solid domestic violence defense and to fight for your rights! 

Domestic violence can be physical, emotional, or psychological (mental abuse). The most common types of domestic violence in Pensacola include:

  • Assault (verbal threats)
  • Battery (physical violence)
  • Sexual violence 
  • Stalking
  • Property Destruction (criminal mischief)

Domestic violence can also involve more serious crimes such as murder, rape, child abuse, child neglect, strangulation, or sexual crimes against children. In Florida, you can still be charged with domestic assault even if you haven’t struck the victim. In addition, if you have acted in a manner that puts the victim in fear of violence, you may be arrested or charged with a crime. If that happens, you can still fight for your rights and freedom, but you must speak with a criminal defense lawyer from Florida Criminal Defense Legal Group, PLLC, immediately.

What You Need to Know About Domestic Violence Charges?

If you or someone you know is facing criminal charges in Pensacola, the state of Florida needs to prove that you have committed the alleged crime to obtain a criminal conviction. While you may think the state must have evidence (photos, medical records) to support the supposed victim’s testimony, it is not mandatory. Most domestic violence cases depend entirely on the supposed victim’s testimony. This may seem unfair, but it’s the reality when it comes to these types of crimes. That’s why seeking help from an experienced lawyer is in your best interest. 

Domestic Violence Injunction

Domestic violence injunctions are codified in Florida Statutes §741.30 as court orders against other persons who have been physically violent and/or have placed the victims in fear of physical violence. A domestic violence injunction requires an abusive spouse or another individual to stay away from the victim’s house, places of employment, or other places the court may deem necessary. When facing domestic violence proceedings, it is vital to retain a domestic violence lawyer who will help you understand your rights and fight for you in criminal court. 

At Florida Criminal Defense Legal Group, PLLC, our attorneys will fight aggressively to help you maintain your innocence while addressing all issues related to your domestic violence charges. Call us today for a free consultation.

Why Should You Hire a Domestic Violence Lawyer in Pensacola?

Suppose you get arrested. The police may take two to four weeks to collect and prepare evidence to send to the state of Florida. This information pertains to Florida’s state cases only, not federal investigations or arrests. Once the state attorneys receive the evidence, they can either retain the criminal charges, drop, or raise them. 

Working with Florida Criminal Defense Legal Group, PLLC, will significantly improve your chances of a favorable outcome. Our team of experienced domestic violence attorneys will immediately start working on your behalf by analyzing your case, deposing witnesses, interviewing the alleged victim, as well as gathering as much evidence as possible.

But suppose your domestic violence case can not avoid going to trial. In that case, our attorneys will prepare a solid defense and address various complex issues, such as the ‘No Contact‘ condition that prevents you from accessing your home or children.
