    Domestic Violence

    Like many other states, Florida has a mandatory arrest policy for domestic violence cases. This means that if you or your domestic partner, spouse or otherwise, reports domestic abuse, it is mandatory that an arrest be made. Domestic violence of any kind is always a serious matter.

     

    The attorneys at the DeWitt Law Firm have the unique ability to handle both criminal and civil domestic violence charges because of our experience in family law, domestic violence injunctions and domestic battery cases. We recognize that domestic violence cases often can be difficult and stressful matters, but we will work with you in an attempt to achieve the best outcome possible.

     

    If you need help with a domestic violence offense, the criminal defense team of the Dewitt Law Firm would be honored to put our experience to work for you.
