Aggravated Child Abuse Charges Dropped in Miramar by South Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer

Aggravated Child Abuse in Miramar Dropped by Fort Lauderdale Defense Attorneys

Outcome of Aggravated Child Abuse Charge:

The Rossen Law Firm got Glenda’s aggravated child abuse charge dropped and reduced to a misdemeanor charge. Instead of facing 7 to 30 years in prison, Glenda only spent 12 months on probation.

Client Concerns of Aggravated Child Abuse Charge:

Glenda had just finished the approval process to be a children’s counselor, and she was fired from her job due to this incident. Glenda was worried she would go to prison, especially since she was looking at a sentence of anywhere from 7 to 30 years. The case also made the news, and her home was swarmed by reporters, which didn’t help her reputation.

Facts in Aggravated Child Abuse Case:

Glenda was at her house in Miramar when she got into an argument with her teenage son. In a quick moment of anger and frustration, she picked up a hot clothes iron and hit him on the shoulder. Glenda’s son went to school and she went about her day, until her son asked the school nurse for a band aid for his shoulder. The nurse examined the shoulder and saw a severe burn mark that looked like a brand from a cattle iron.  When he told the school what had happened, they called the police. Glenda was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse.

Strategy in Aggravated Child Abuse Case:

When we were hired, we helped Glenda work towards reunification with her son.   She and her husband took parenting classes and their family went to group therapy. During the time Rossen Law Firm was working on the case, Glenda’s son called 911 to falsely report that his dad was also violent against him. We proved that the report was fake, and used this as evidence that he was just trying to manipulate the situation with a false report.


Calling the police with a false report is also a crime. We were about to take a deposition of her son and exposed numerous inconsistencies in his story. As we were preparing the case for trial, we were able to negotiate a dismissal of the serious felony charge and Glenda resolved the case to a misdemeanor with 12 months of probation.

I had an unfortunate situation with a family member that lead to my arrest and being charged with DV Battery. This was the first time I had ever been arrested so I was very nervous and afraid of what was going to happen to me. After talking with Adam I decided to retain him and let me tell you this was the BEST decision I could have ever made. Adam made me feel so comfortable and confident that everything will turn out the best in my favor. He is professional, ethical and supportive. He was always available too answer any questions or concerns.Not to mention, his team at the office is awesome they are so friendly and welcoming. Anytime I had a question when I called the office they were able to guide me in the rightdirection. They always were in contact with me with any information or updates regarding my case. Adams team is GREAT!Adam delivered, my case was DISMISSED. So if you want an attorney the is gonna fight for you and get the job done retain the BEST there is Adam Rossen!!!

My initial consultation, and then to pickup the final docs. I have nothing but great things to say about these folks, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Guys.

I had an amazing experience with The Rossen Law Firm. The staff were very professional. Attorney Susan Lawson went above and beyond working on my case. We were thoroughly prepared for trial. Mrs. Lawson reviewed hours of body and dash camera footage multiple times and aggressively performed depositions on witnesses and law enforcement.The final outcome for me was the state dropped my case, due to the great work Susan and the Rossen team performed. I didn’t even need to go to trial.This law firm does not play around. They pay attention to detail and they FIGHT FOR YOU!Thank you Adam, team, and a special thank you to Susan for your amazing work! I really appreciate you.

My experience with Rossen Law Firm was excellent. From the consultation to the end.. My attorney Susan Lawson gave my son's case all the time and attention that was needed to be successful in court. She was confident during all the court proceedings. My favorite part was when she said we are family, never once my son and I were treated other then that. I very much appreciate the knowledge and support I received through Rossen Law Firm.
