Domestic Violence
Domestic violence cases are common in Florida and are often difficult to prove because there are rarely witnesses. Sometimes, it is simply the defendant's word versus the prosecution.

Aggravated Battery
When accused of aggravated battery, you may be able to argue that you were acting in self-defense or in defense of another person. If you want more information about your defense options, call our firm today!

Record Sealing
When a person has a criminal history record, it is in their best interests to get their criminal record sealed if they qualify. By getting one's records sealed, their criminal record is no longer available for public viewing, but certain government entities still have access to it.

With an expungement, the public does not have access to a person's criminal record. Further, those government agencies that have access to sealed records would not have access to an expunged record without first obtaining a court order.

Violation of Probation
When a probationer violates a term of their probation, they will be brought before the court and advised of their violation or charge. Depending on the case, the court may revoke, modify, or continue the probation. When probation is revoked the original sentence may be imposed upon the probationer.
