What Is Considered Domestic Violence?

In Florida, domestic violence is an act of violence, or threat of violence, by a family or household member.

Examples of behavior that can constitute domestic violence may include:

  • Assault or aggravated assault
  • Battery or aggravated battery
  • Sexual assault or sexual battery
  • Stalking or aggravated stalking
  • False imprisonment
  • Kidnapping
  • Any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death

Domestic violence charges are often the result of a misunderstanding, miscommunication, or misinterpretation. No one knows the truth of a situation except for the people involved, and even then, stories can differ. You need someone on your side who understands that things are not what people assume they are, someone you can trust to have your best interest at heart.

Defenses Against Domestic Violence Charges

There are several possible defenses to domestic violence charges. Attorney Greg Rosenfeld can review your case, examine evidence, review possible prosecution avenues, and strategize counter offenses.

Your defense’s goal is to prove one or more of the following:

  • No crime occurred through factual defenses.
  • You acted in self-defense.
  • You acted out of protection for a child or another family member.
  • You had legal justification for your actions.
  • Your defense is founded on constitutional grounds.

It’s your defense’s job to determine which avenue is applicable and the subsequent plan of action in the courtroom. Your satisfaction with Attorney Rosenfeld’s effort during your case is of the utmost importance and he has faith that his representation will not disappoint.

    Peer

  • I would without a doubt refer Greg!

    “Greg was so amazingly awesome! He most definitely got the job done for me. Before hiring Greg I was beyond stressed about my case, I was at a stand still on what to do next to resolve it. As soon as I got him on my side all of the stress disappeared. He handled everything with such ease, constantly kept me in the loop and explained everything to me in a way I could understand. I would without a doubt refer Greg to anyone looking for an outstanding attorney!”

    Kaitlin

  • I would recommend Greg any day!

    “Quick and easy process, I would recommend Greg any day...”

    Vince

  • Greg did everything he promised and more.

    “Greg did everything he promised and more. Top-notch customer service, consistent updates, and I strongly recommend the Law Offices of Greg Rosenfeld.”

    Former Client

  • A diligent and effective attorney!

    “Greg is a diligent and effective attorney who dedicates himself to zealously advocating for his clients.”

    Peer

  • Best lawyer hands down!

    “After 3 probation violations I was facing a minimum of 20 months in prison. At my first appearance, I witness Greg get one of his clients out of jail and trust me, his record and charges were outrageous. Naturally, I asked him for Greg's contact. I'm writing this review because Greg I was released from custody and was able to modify my probation to terms that makes sense! Not to mention, he somehow got me a withheld adjudication. In over 5 years on probation I've never had a lawyer fight for me so hard. Greg goes to war for his clients.”

    Client

  • Excellent attorney at law!

    “Excellent attorney at law very down to earth extremely brilliant. Mr Rosenfeld has your best interests at heart . If you would like a lawyer that keeps everything honest and based on facts he is the lawyer for you. Five star rating two thumbs up.”

    Mark C.

  • Very good lawyer to have on your side.

    “We were in need of a lawyer really fast and after doing a lot of research, we had a meeting with Mr. Rosenfeld and decided to hire him on the spot. He was very helpful in letting us know what we were up against when it came to my son's case. He told us what to expect and what he will do for us. The prosecutor was being very difficult in the fact that she rejected everything Mr. Rosenfeld tried to negotiate for us. He worked really hard for us and in the end he got us a better deal than we expected. He was always available 24/7. Very good lawyer to have on your side.”

    Client

  • Intense. Communicative. Professional.

    “Retained Mr. Rosenfeld (Greg) on quick notice after 'interviewing' several other attorneys. The work he performed made it clear the choice was right. Greg was constantly in communication and available 24x7 (refreshing change) and very responsive (don't take for granted - many lawyers are aloof and reapond to what they feel they need to vs. all client concerns). He handled the case from a techincal level with precision and this resulted in a favorable outcome. Greg was very transparent about fees - nothing to hide or surprise and he didn't try to scare excess fees out of our pockets in contrast to others. Finally, Greg's perspective as a former Public Defender really makes him a passionate advocate for the accused. Talking with attorneys who were former prosecutors made me feel like they lapse back into their former role's perspective and may not always have your back 100%. Greg was really outstanding in every respect and I fully expect to see him flourish with an outstanding reputation in private practice by continuing to exceed clients' expectations.”
