Domestic Violence and Battery

Domestic violence is taken extremely seriously in Florida, and the police will take decisive action if they feel that someone is in danger. Actual physical contact doesn't even need to take place for a restraining order to be issued. In some cases, just the fear of harm can be enough to have you removed from your home. Domestic violence convictions require mandatory adjudication, which means that a conviction stays on your record permanently. Those convicted of domestic violence must also complete a 27 week battered spouse class.

The law tends to favor alleged victims in these cases, and it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. At the law firm of Ringsmuth, Day & O'Halloran, we provide strong representation to clients who are facing charges for any type of domestic violence or battery offense.

Working to Protect Your Rights and Your Freedom

Our Fort Myers domestic violence attorneys have extensive experience in these cases. We take the time to listen to your side of the story and learn everything we can about the incident. We will review the statements of the alleged victim and any witnesses and look for inconsistencies we can use to your advantage. We are committed to helping you reach the most favorable possible outcome in your case.

Our only goal in these cases is to beat the charges against you outright. If the prosecution has a solid case, however, we will work to obtain the best possible plea agreement. First-time offenders may also be eligible for the Domestic Violence Diversion Program, which allows your domestic violence charge to be dismissed upon successful completion of a 27-week class.

We also represent clients in cases involving assault, battery and other violent offenses. In many of these cases, the case comes down to your word against the other person's. We will present the strongest possible argument on your behalf and do everything we can to preserve your rights and your freedom.
