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.

  • No crime occurred through factual defenses.
  • You acted in self-defense.
  • You acted out of protection for a child or another family member.

  • His composure, actions, and performance truly speak for what he is specialized, overly qualified, and destined to do!

    “First and foremost, I would love to thank this man beyond measures for the outstanding job he has done for me personally and the great relief he has bestowed upon my family. In January of 2017 I was charged and humiliated with a crime I was falsely accused of and was looking at a life sentence. Even with all the neglect from the detectives, I was incarcerated in jail nearly a year until Mr. Rosenfeld was able to persuade the judge and state attorney to release me back home with my family on house arrest for the remainder of the state's case proceedings. Upon that time, he also was able to accommodate me further by removing the strict regulations of the county's house arrest program and substitute it with a private company so I was able to still provide for my family with having so many obstacles that could potentially violate me and send me back into the jail. He has always given me nothing but respect and professionalism even when there were days when I was overly upset, emotional, and downright in wrong how I lashed out towards him behind the frustrations of my case. His composure, actions, and performance truly speak for what he is specialized, overly qualified, and destined to do! I can sit here proudly today and say I am a free man without any prosecution thanks to Greg and I highly recommend him to any and every person no matter the case big or small Mr. Rosenfeld can handle them all. Sincerely, his most satisfied customer.”

  • 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.”

  • Exceptional defense attorney!

    “I found Greg Rosenfeld to be an experienced, aggressive compassionate defense attorney. I hired Mr. Rosenfeld to defend my daughter in a criminal case. I have hired other attorneys in the past and have found that most attorneys are attentive and engaged up until the moment they are paid. We had the opposite experience with Mr. Rosenfeld who stayed in constant communication, worked harder than any lawyer I've met and got results that far exceeded our expectations. He kept fighting when most would have given up. I think very highly of him both as a person and as Criminal Law Defense Attorney. Great job and I will gladly recommend you to anyone who needs an excellent Criminal Lawyer.”

  • He is a zealous advocate for his clients.

    “Mr. Rosenfeld has been my opposing counsel on a variety of cases, ranging from misdemeanor driving offenses to violent felonies. He is a zealous advocate for his clients, and works tirelessly to ensure a just outcome on each of his cases. As a prosecutor, I truly respect how he handles his cases. He is an intelligent, ethical, diligent, and conscientious attorney. I have always said that if any of my friends or loved ones were ever charged with a crime, I would want him to represent them.”

  • A talented trial lawyer and advocate.

    “Mr. Rosenfeld is a talented trial lawyer and advocate with the utmost ethical standards and judgment.”

  • 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.”
