Miami Domestic Violence Lawyer

Offenses involving domestic violence are those that involve the use of force or intimidation against another person in the household. These crimes are among the most common types of offenses in Florida and people who are found guilty face significant penalties. Some of the consequences that can result after a conviction for a domestic violence offense include probation, restraining orders, fines, and even jail time. In addition, a crime of domestic violence can stay on your record for the rest of your life, making it difficult to get a job or even rent an apartment. For this reason, anyone accused of a crime involving domestic violence should contact one of our Miami domestic violence lawyers at the Baez Law Firm today.

A Skilled Lawyer Can Often Help

If you have been accused of domestic violence, you should retain an lawyer who is familiar with defending against these types of allegations. The lawyers of the Baez Law Firm are experienced lawyers who understand how to defend against a domestic violence charge and are committed to obtaining the best result in each case we take.

Domestic Violence can Take a Variety of Forms

Many people are under the mistaken impression that domestic violence refers only to the physical abuse of a spouse. While it is certainly true that this kind of domestic violence takes place, it can also occur between any people who share a domestic relationship, including exes, live-in significant others, co-parents, siblings, or aunts and uncles. These cases can result in both civil and criminal liability and some of the more common criminal offenses associated with domestic violence include the following:

  • Stalking;
  • Assault and battery;
  • Sexual assault;
  • False imprisonment;
  • Kidnapping;
  • Child abuse;
  • Harassment.

There May be Defenses Available

Domestic violence cases tend to be messy. In many cases, law enforcement officers respond to the aftermath of a dispute to find a chaotic scene that they must reconstruct to the best of their ability. In many cases, they are required to make a determination as to which party was the aggressor in a particular situation–an often difficult task that requires sorting through various accounts of what occurred. Many domestic violence cases come down to a “he said, she said” situation, where the officers investigating a scene are required to make an arbitrary decision in arresting one or both parties. In many cases, the goal of law enforcement is simply to separate the parties as quickly as possible, which can often lead to an innocent party being accused of a crime.

There are many ways in which an lawyer can potentially defend against allegations of domestic violence, including the following:

  • Establishing that the other party had engaged in a pattern of abuse;
  • Arguing that the defendant’s use of force was justified as self-defense;
  • Challenging the credibility of the other party’s account of the incident in question;
  • Introducing evidence that shows that the defendant was physically unable to have committed the offense of which he or she is accused.
