When the police are called into a domestic dispute, it is likely that someone will go to jail. It rarely matters what the circumstances of the dispute were or who was really at fault in the matter. If even a small bruise or a minor scratch on the alleged victim is evident, law enforcement will make an arrest.
Making matters worse, judges are required to issue no-contact orders prohibiting a person accused of domestic violence from returning to his or her home. If you have been accused of a domestic violence crime and have been arrested in St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra, St. Johns, or the surrounding areas of Florida, you should contact our firm immediately for your initial consultation with a domestic violence attorney.

Criminal Penalties of a Domestic Violence Charge
If you are convicted of domestic assault or battery, you face potential jail time and a prolonged probation period. Additionally, you will be required to attend a 26-week batterer's intervention program. These harsh consequences can be minimized with the skilled legal assistance of a criminal defense attorney.
Often, a domestic violence case is based on "he said, she said" arguments. Even so, the prosecution may refuse to drop the case, which means you will need an attorney to defend you. For example, an experienced lawyer may be able to establish that the defendant merely acted in self-defense during the dispute, in which case the domestic violence charges may be reduced or dropped, or the case could be won at trial.
