Domestic Violence

Domestic Violence (DV) includes:

  • Battery or aggravated battery;
  • Assault or aggravated assault;
  • False imprisonment or kidnapping;
  • and Stalking or aggravated stalking.

Being accused of domestic violence in Florida is an extremely serious matter. You need the high quality, innovative representation HAWM LAW provides. The most common situations involve a spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend. When law enforcement is called to intervene, often someone will be arrested, even if the victim doesn’t want that person arrested. You may be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. The offense can become more severe if there are aggravating circumstances such as strangulation causing great bodily harm, stalking in violation of an injunction, or if the alleged victim is pregnant.

At HAWM LAW, we understand the complexities of the judicial system. If the alleged victim does not want you prosecuted, HAWM LAW can file the appropriate paperwork and communicate with the assigned Assistant State Attorney. Sometimes, early contact with the State Attorney’s Office can lead to your domestic violence charge being dropped, even before criminal charges are filed. Our experience attorneys can attend your “first appearance” or “advisory hearing” to help you obtain a reasonable bond. We can also request you get a “no contact” order removed, thereby allowing you to return to your home. We are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of domestic violence law, and have gained the respect and cooperation of all levels of the Florida legal system.
