Defending Clients Facing Domestic Violence Charges in St. Johns County
When the police are called into a domestic dispute, someone will likely go to jail. It rarely matters what the circumstances of the conflict were or who was really at fault in the matter. If even a small bruise or a minor scratch on the alleged victim is evident, law enforcement will make an arrest.
Making matters worse, judges must issue no-contact orders prohibiting a person accused of domestic violence from returning to his or her home. If you have been charged with a domestic violence crime and have been arrested in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, St. Johns, or the surrounding areas of Florida, you should contact our firm immediately for your initial consultation with a domestic violence attorney.

What Happens If I Am Arrested for Domestic Violence?
If you are convicted of domestic assault or battery, you face possible jail time and a prolonged probation period. Additionally, individuals who admit responsibility for their role in a domestic violence case and pass a psychosocial evaluation by the Department of Children & Families must attend a 6-month Batterer's Intervention Program (BIP) as a mandatory condition of their probation. These harsh consequences can be minimized with the skilled legal assistance of a criminal defense attorney.
Often, a domestic violence case is based on "he said, she said" arguments. Even so, the prosecution may refuse to drop the case, which means you will need an attorney to defend you. For example, an experienced lawyer may be able to establish that the defendant merely acted in self-defense during the dispute, in which case the domestic violence charges may be reduced or dropped, or the issue could be won at trial.
