Domestic violence is a serious issue for everyone involved. Perhaps you are the victim of domestic assault or family violence; you need all the protection that the law can offer, including obtaining a permanent injunction or restraining order. On the other hand, you may have been accused of domestic violence; you need a lawyer with experience and expertise to protect you from the negative consequences of these charges and to vacate a domestic violence injunction that has improperly been entered.
I have been a Board Certified Family and Marital Law Specialist since 1993. This certification is difficult to earn, and it is only given to the most highly trained professionals in this area of legal practice. For example, only 33 other Broward County, Florida, lawyers share this distinction. From my Hallandale Beach law firm, I have the tools to help you through your domestic violence issue.
As a Board Certified Marital and Family Law Specialist — an expert in the field — I provide exceptional representation for domestic violence cases.What is Domestic Violence?
Domestic violence occurs when a party is either harmed or placed in fear of bodily harm at the hands of someone with whom that party is intimate. Simply put, domestic violence is any violent crime committed between loved ones.
Domestic violence is too serious to ignore. As a victim, you or your children could be seriously hurt. As someone accused of domestic violence, you could lose your time-sharing rights to your children. Contact me immediately; I can help.An Expert Attorney on Your Side
In my 30 years as a family law attorney, I have experience working with police officers who arrive on the scene, assisting in the case, and handling all the domestic violence-related issues, including:
