This post concludes and recaps my series on the handling of domestic violence charges in Tampa, Florida. I felt it necessary to write on this topic as many individuals do not know what to expect from the process after they have been arrested. The goal of my recent articles has been to help individuals understand what it is they should expect from the process. It has also been my goal to provide information which will help people make an informed decision when they are selecting a criminal defense lawyer. If you require assistance then contact my office today to speak with an attorney.

I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I analyzed include:

There are several reasons why defendants must understand these topics. First, and unfortunately, there may be no other criminal charge that is as likely to be based on false allegations as is a claim of domestic violence. Understanding how to deal with false allegations is, therefore, crucial. Second, many make the mistake of thinking that these types of charges are a “private matter” between two parties. The fact of the matter, however, is that the process will involve governmental entities and a defendant must take the case very seriously. Third, knowing what to expect from the trial process will help to ensure that things go as smoothly as possible. Finally, the penalties for a conviction are severe and extend beyond simple incarceration.

One point I have stressed through each of these articles is that you should retain an attorney immediately if you have been charged. The sooner you retain counsel then the sooner your representative can begin building a defense on your behalf. Such a defense will include visiting the scene of the incident (if possible), filing all necessary motions, and gathering evidence which shows that the victim is not being truthful. As a Tampa defense lawyer I am familiar with handling such matters. Contact my office today to speak with an attorney.
