COVID-19 is hitting Florida hard this summer, and the consequences are far-reaching. Job loss, quarantine, closed schools and daycares, and political arguments—not to mention illness—are putting a lot of stress on families and couples. This kind of stress can lead to an increase in violence, and it can also lead to an increase in false accusations of domestic violence. If you have been charged with domestic violence because a short-tempered partner reported you to police, you need a qualified defense attorney on your side.
How We Will Defend You Against False Charges
Tensions may be high in your household during this difficult time, but it is not a crime to argue with your partner. Even if there is a physical altercation, that doesn’t mean you have committed domestic abuse. If your partner called the police and you are facing charges, our defense attorney will look at the facts of the incident. Possible defenses may include:
If your partner started a fight or threatened you with a weapon and you reacted to defend yourself, you might have an argument for self-defense. This is true even if you are bigger and stronger than your partner.
Defense of others
You may have reacted in order to protect children or others in the home. Grabbing the arms of a partner who is throwing things may be justified if others are endangered.
An accusation from a partner with no witnesses, no signs of injury, and no history of police involvement could potentially be dismissed for lack of evidence.
Fights between domestic partners can be consensual in that each person is equally involved in the fight. This can be a defense.
Given your specific situation, defense attorney Danny Izquierdo will build the strongest possible defense to clear your name.
