West Palm Beach Domestic Violence Attorneys

Domestic Violence Attorneys in West Palm Beach

Domestic battery or domestic violence charges occur when a defendant is accused of using violence against a household member.

While defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty, in the eyes of law enforcement and society those accused of violence against household members are too often presumed guilty until they can prove innocence. These charges carry significant criminal penalties as well as social consequences that can include job loss and the inability to return home or visit children. Convictions can also significantly impact divorce proceedings and/or child custody rights and protection orders can even prevent you from moving back home.

Early consultation with an experienced West Palm Beach criminal defense lawyer is the best thing you can do to protect your freedom and your rights. Resist the urge to attempt to explain yourself to law enforcement; in most cases a male suspect will be arrested and charged at the scene. What matters is whether you are convicted, and how quickly you seek legal help to fight protection orders and other associated consequences that can negatively impact your life.
