It is important to understand the complexity of cases involving domestic battery. Lawyers at our Jacksonville criminal defense firm, Stone Lockett, focus on the motives of the accuser, demonstrating in many cases that domestic battery charges are unwarranted and result from unfounded accusations.
If you have been charged with or arrested for spousal abuse or domestic violence, it is important that you do not answer questions or make any statement without an attorney present. Any explanations are better made by your lawyer on your behalf, rather than in the emotionally charged setting of an interrogation or arrest.
Contact our Jacksonville criminal defense law offices if you would like a confidential, free consultation with a lawyer experienced in defense against domestic battery charges. At that time you can discuss the allegations of abuse, the evidence being used against you, and your options. We are results oriented, always aiming for dismissal of charges or acquittal at trial.
Often claims of domestic violence, including domestic battery, stalking, child abuse, and charges of violating restraining orders, are the result of false accusations made by a party involved in a divorce or child custody action.
In such cases, our attorneys show the prosecution does not have the outside witnesses or independent evidence needed to prove the case against our client. In other cases, we negotiate for a favorable plea bargain or reduced charges to ensure against the adverse consequences of a conviction for domestic violence.
