Our child abuse attorneys leave no stone unturned when building your case, and we prioritize you and your future every step of the way. To learn more about child abuse defenses in South Florida, get in touch with us.

The Importance of Having an Expert Team Behind You

At Rossen Law Firm, we start building your defense from day one. The very first part of that is making sure you do not speak to anybody from the moment you are arrested. Everything runs through us. Think of your lawyer as your own personal Captain America. Our weapon is our shield, and our job is to shield our clients from law enforcement. From here, our Fort Lauderdale team can start examining the facts of your child abuse case and working on your defense.

Determining The “Why”

Once we start digging into the allegations, we are looking for a “why” in your case. The police are going to say that their “why” was most likely hot-headed parents who were over-disciplining the child. However, there is often more at play here.

Maybe the child is having behavioral problems. Maybe the child has an overactive imagination. Maybe the child was doing something, was lying to gain friends or get sympathy. What was going on at home? Is there a divorce, a separation? Is one parent putting the child up to this for influence in child custody or divorce proceedings?

We have seen cases where all these things have been issues and reasons for children to either lie or over-exaggerate. An experienced Fort Lauderdale attorney can take these facts and turn them into a defense that demonstrates why your case unfolded as it did. From here, we can work to prove that your actions were not indicative of child abuse.

Defenses Involving Procedural Issues in South Florida

Law enforcement is held to very specific procedural standards when conducting any type of criminal investigation. When police mislead someone or violate their constitutional rights, this could be a basis for throwing out their evidence.

We want to look into what types of questions children were asked. Often, police officers, school resource officers, and DCF investigators ask leading questions that are suggestive of an answer. This can lead children to say things they do not mean.

Law enforcement can do this intentionally or unintentionally. A lot of times, these officers will spend an hour or two talking to the child off the record. In their own way, they will essentially be helping the child fill in the gaps of a story. This often means that by the time a statement is recorded, it has been solidified by law enforcement and is made up of mostly untrue information. Our expert legal team can dig deep into that entire procedure of what was done off-camera when building a child abuse defense.

A Child Abuse Defense in Fort Lauderdale Often Requires Patience

Child abuse cases do not always resolve right away. These are cases that, if we cannot get them dismissed right away, are usually going to be a long fight. A lot of these cases involve patience. However, child abuse cases often get better with age.

The longer things go on, the more they tend to get better because stories fall apart and stories change. This can be a game-changer in your case. We want to see the full picture to build the best possible defense on your behalf.

If you have questions about child abuse defenses in South Florida, we are here to help. The dedicated team at Rossen Law Firm is committed to making things right for you and protecting your future. We know that bad things sometimes happen to good people, and we will not back down when it comes to fighting for you. Schedule a strategy session with us to get started on your case.

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!!!

Adam Rossen and the team at Rossen Law took great care in handling my case. They are very professional, and get the job done. I was particular relieved to see just how much empathy they showed with me, and how effortless it was to be their client.I literally visited them twice. 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.
