Familial and romantic relationships are some of the most important aspects of our lives. In the interest of protecting these relationships as well as providing a shield for vulnerable members of society, state criminal law contains special provisions concerning domestic violence. Unfortunately, this sometimes means that arrests are made and charges are pressed where they are not necessarily warranted.

We know that a small mistake in a heated moment can have disproportionate consequences. At Rossen Law Firm, our defense attorneys are committed to protecting your rights and ensuring you have the best possible chance of a positive case outcome. An expert Miramar domestic violence lawyer can provide more information about your charges, defend your rights during pretrial sessions, and work to create reasonable doubt during trials.

What Does it Mean to Commit Domestic Violence?

The concept and definition of domestic violence are specific to state law. According to Florida Statute § 741.28, you may face accusations involving domestic violence if you target a “household member.” These people include:

  • A spouse, former spouse, or a person who ever lived in the same household
  • A person with whom you have a child in common
  • A blood relation, such as a child, parent, grandparent, brother, or sister
  • A child living in the same household as you who is not your biological child
  • People in a romantic or sexual relationship, presently or in the past

An offense marked as one of domestic violence brings additional potential penalties. A criminal court may order you to surrender all firearms during the length of the trial. Furthermore, a complainant may move the court to implement a protective order or restraining order that remains in effect until the conclusion of the case. A guilty finding may see these orders become permanent. A skilled Miramar attorney can provide more information about domestic violence charges and how this designation could impact your rights from the moment of arrest.

Offenses that May go Hand in Hand with Domestic Violence Accusations

Domestic violence allegations will always accompany a separate criminal charge. These criminal accusations generally involve allegations of violence or making threats against the safety of others, including:

  • Assault
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Unlawful imprisonment
  • Making threats
  • Trespassing
  • Criminal damage

The majority of a domestic violence case is presenting a strong defense against the underlying criminal allegations. This is where an award-winning Miramar domestic violence attorney comes in. A successful defense can see a reduction in the severity of charges, a plea bargain to a reduced sentence, or an outright dismissal of the case. This could result in not just an avoidance of the criminal penalties that accompany convictions for these offenses but also limits the scope of all potential restraining orders.

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.
