Stuart Domestic Violence Lawyers

Let ADL Law, P.A. Protect You From False Allegations

When police officers receive a report of domestic violence in Florida, they will almost always make an arrest. This is true even when the complainant does not wish to press charges and even if the officers cannot definitively prove that an act of domestic violence took place. The arresting officers often listen to the complainant, who could have either fabricated the story, exaggerated the facts, or been the abuser themselves.

If you’ve been accused of domestic violence, you need strong and aggressive representation right away. Regardless of the complainant’s wishes to press charges, Florida’s Office of the State Attorney may choose to do so anyway.

Also, if you are not an American citizen, if found convicted, you could possibly be deported from the United States by Immigration and Customs Enforcement. These offenses will also show up on background checks, thereby limiting your ability to get a job, apply for loans, and attain housing.

At ADL Law, P.A., our Stuart domestic violence lawyers are highly skilled and extensively experienced in this complex area of law. Backed by years of in-depth experience, we have the skills necessary to help you resolve your legal matter quickly and efficiently.
