Tampa Domestic Violence Attorney
Have you been charged with a domestic violence offense?
Domestic abuse is any type of verbal, physical, emotional, or sexual battery towards a member of one's own household. In the state of Florida, domestic violence laws are aggressively enforced, and calls for domestic violence almost always result in an arrest.
If you have been accused of domestic violence, take immediate action by hiring a defense lawyer who is experienced in defending such cases. Retaining a Tampa defense attorney to safeguard your rights is crucial from the beginning of your case to help establish a strong defense that can possibly help you in avoiding being charged, or in getting acquitted and avoiding punishment.
Types of Cases We Handle
At The Law Office of Timothy Hessinger we defend clients facing all types of domestic violence charges, including assault and battery offenses.
Assault & battery are actually two separate crimes but are usually categorized together. Assault is the threat of violence towards another person while battery is the actual carrying out of these threats.
When someone is accused of child abuse or
spousal abuse, they may be issued a
restraining order. A
restraining order violation could lead to being held in contempt of court.
Stalking / aggravated stalking involves continually harassing a victim with malicious intent. If you have any further questions regarding domestic violence, contact a member of our legal team or see the links below:
