Domestic Violence Defense
Any action or threat directed toward a spouse or family member could be considered domestic violence. If you are charged with assault, battery or a related offense, there's a lot at stake. Even if you have no prior record, you should have a defense lawyer representing your interests.
Conan & Herman, P.A., is an established Lake County criminal law firm that represents men and women facing misdemeanor and felony offenses. We handle all types of criminal cases — from drunk driving to probation violation. If you have questions about the charges you face, the first step to take is to contact an attorney at our firm to discuss your legal options.
Domestic Violence Defense: You Versus The State
In Florida, you face criminal charges even if the alleged victim decides to drop charges. There are very specific rules for domestic violence cases, so it is in your best interests to work with an attorney who is familiar with the legal processes and defenses to domestic violence charges.
If an officer responds to a domestic violence call, he or she is required to make an arrest. If you are arrested, you will be held without bond until the next morning. You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible to help review your case and make a recommendation on a defense strategy.
At Conan & Herman, P.A., we handle all types of domestic violence cases, including:
- Aggravated assault
- Weapons offenses
We know how to work with prosecutors, the criminal process and how to handle issues that may arise. Our attorneys take an educational approach to working with clients and work hard to help prevent a criminal conviction.
