Evidence plays a crucial role in domestic violence cases. It is especially important to have robust evidence in a domestic violence trial because of the volatile and sometimes untrue nature of these accusations. It is not at all uncommon for today’s alleged victim to be yesterday’s defendant, so having proof of a complainant’s hotheaded or instigative nature can make all the difference in how a case turns out. Having evidence that points to infidelity, abusive tendencies, gambling issues, or misuse of funds can also be critical.

Gathering and presenting all this evidence on your own would be near impossible, which is why our tenacious team at Rossen Law Firm is here to help. We know where to look for evidence in Boca Raton domestic violence cases, and we have extensive experience presenting evidence in court in a way that shines a favorable light on clients. Our award-winning domestic violence attorneys are prepared to fight for your rights and your future.

How Evidence is Collected and Presented

While the police should take pictures and get witness statements in a domestic violence case, this does not always happen as it should. Oftentimes, law enforcement does not take pictures, give a detailed analysis of what happened, or get sworn statements from all the witnesses, which is all crucial evidence to have. The 911 call is also very important in these cases, and a lot of times, the police do not save and secure it.

Involving an expert lawyer as soon as possible in these cases is critical. Our knowledgeable Boca Raton team knows what evidence is needed and where to find it, and we can ensure nothing falls through the cracks in your domestic violence case.

How is Each Piece of Evidence Validated?

Under Florida’s rules of evidence, a defense lawyer needs to be able to show that a particular piece of evidence is relevant and admissible, which means laying the proper foundation through witness testimony. This might mean having witnesses testify that a photo is accurate or that a piece of evidence was actually present at the scene. Experienced attorneys know how to work with witnesses to present the strongest possible case.

Evidence Commonly Presented by The Prosecution

When it comes to the prosecution’s evidence, they are often going to bring in Boca Raton police officers who did not actually witness anything but instead arrived in the aftermath of an alleged domestic violence incident. Law enforcement will talk about their investigation and what they observed, as far as any physical evidence, such as bruising or scratching. Police officers will usually speak about the general condition of the area, where the incident was, and if it was inside or outside the home.

The prosecution will also bring in the alleged victim so they can tell their side of the story of what happened. If there is a 911 call, prosecutors might bring in a 911 call operator to play the tape of the call, or they may just have the caller testify. Prosecutors might also bring in third-party witnesses who saw the incident, as well as any physical evidence, such as a weapon.

Getting Harmful Evidence Dismissed

A prosecutor’s evidence can be harmful to a defendant’s case. Fortunately, there are many ways to get evidence dismissed in a domestic violence case. When evidence is not properly maintained, preserved, or collected by the police, defense attorneys can file motions to try to have it excluded. In the case of 911 calls, just because there is a call does not mean it is actually admissible. Often, our expert lawyers will try to get the 911 call excluded, especially if it is harmful to clients. If there is any video or photographic evidence of domestic violence, our Boca Raton attorneys will investigate whether there is someone who can actually authenticate the evidence.

Throwing Out Witness Testimonies

It is not unheard of for police officers to fail to read someone their Miranda rights. Law enforcement might arrive at the scene of an incident and immediately ask the defendant what happened without reading them their rights. When this happens, a defense attorney can work to get the testimony excluded since the defendant’s rights were violated when they testified.

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!!!

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.
