Whether you are the person seeking Court protection from domestic violence or the party being accused of committing acts of repeat violence,  sexual violence, or dating violence, you’ll need an attorney with my experience and skill to make sure to draw out your side of the story.

What is domestic violence?

Florida law defines “Domestic violence” as any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another who is or was residing in the same single dwelling unit.”

  • former spouses
  • persons related by blood or marriage
  • persons who are presently residing together as if a family or who have resided together in the past as if a family
  • persons who have a child in common regardless of whether they have been married or have resided together at any time.
