Defense Against Domestic Violence Charges In Brevard County
A simple disagreement can quickly turn into a disturbance resulting in a domestic violence charge. In cases between spouses, domestic partners, family members or neighbors, once the police come onto the scene – even if only to address simple misunderstandings – law enforcement officers and prosecutors often seek the maximum penalties under the law.
If you are facing a domestic violence-related charge, getting an attorney is important. There are severe consequences associated with these offenses, depending on the circumstances.
