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.

If you are convicted of a domestic violence charge, depending on the specifics and severity, your charges can include jail time, fines, probation, and batterer classes. In addition, you will likely face a tarnished reputation, possible loss of employment and livelihood, and estrangement from family and friends. Unfortunately, like some other criminal charges, domestic violence convictions often result in a lifetime of judgement and concern in future relationships about your assumed violent tendencies.

  • Minimum of one year of probation

  • Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us.

    “Attorney Rosenfeld was a godsend for us. Our daughter had been in Florida for several years trying to overcome an opioid addiction. In 2015 she made a huge mistake due to financial hardship and attempted to shoplift. She was caught and was facing 2 felony charges. With a year sober and a steady job a public defender tried to get her a reduced sentence. She made at least a half-dozen court appearances and had since moved out of state but the prosecutor refused to budge. Our daughter had since obtained her commercial real estate license and had become engaged to be married. A felony conviction would have ended her career before it started. On the recommendation of a public defender we contacted and retained Attorney Rosenfeld with a court date and an irate prosecutor only days away. His compassion, and intimate knowledge of the Palm Beach court system and it’s judges and prosecutors enabled him to strike a deal that gave our daughter the chance of having the charges dropped after 6 months while submitting to 50 hours of community service and random drug testing. And he did so at a very reasonable cost. If you or a loved one need legal representation in the Palm Beach area, Attorney Rosenfeld is the one to call.”

    Bob

  • Very good lawyer to have on your side.

    “Dedicated Lawyer. 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.”
