Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Attorney Gets Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon Charge Dropped

Outcome of Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon Case:

Within one month of working on the case: A domestic-related aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, the State Prosecutors dropped the charge. Emma didn’t have to spend any time in prison, even though she was facing a maximum sentence of 21 years.

Client Concerns about Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon Charge:

Emma was a victim of her partner’s abuse for several years. She had never been charged with a crime before, and was terrified of the consequences. The incident happened right before Christmas, and Emma was nervous she wouldn’t find a lawyer willing to help her. Emma is also a nurse with a professional license, and was worried that her professional license would be taken away as a result of a criminal charge.

Facts of Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon Case:

Emma was a victim in a very abusive relationship with the father of her child. The man was extremely controlling and abusive. Emma was living in constant fear.

Emma’s entire family lives in New York state, so she was in Florida dealing with the abuse by herself. Emma and the man got into an argument at their house, in which she ended up striking him with a knife on his arm and hit him four times with a baking pan. The man called the police, and Emma was arrested for domestic-related aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.


Emma was facing 21 years in prison.

In Florida, Domestic Violence Battery is harshly prosecuted throughout the state, with penalties and long-term consequences far exceeding that of conventional battery.


Strategy for Attack on Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon Charge:

Emma’s family found Rossen Law Firm online from New York, and hired us over the phone after reading all of our 5-star reviews on our website, Google reviews and Avvo reviews.


The prosecutors originally wanted to give Emma 21 years in prison, so we started working through the pre-filling stage of the case to prove how she, herself, was actually a victim of abuse.


We were able to get Emma out of jail on bond so she could go home. Because the two of them lived together, her partner decided that he would stay at a friend’s house while the charges and the case were getting sorted out.


Her first night out of jail, Emma woke up at 3 a.m. to him breaking into the house. She was terrified, especially as she had already changed the locks. She called the police but he ran away.

Over the next couple of days, he tried to break in on four separate occasions. We pulled the 911 calls and call audio dispatch (CAD) records to prove how terrified Emma was. We reached out to the prosecutor and sent them statements from Emma’s family saying how she has been scared of him for years and the evidence showing that the man has continued to harass and abuse her.

All of her charges were dropped, and she was spared the prospect of spending 20+ years in prison on a maximum sentence.

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.
