Miami Domestic Violence Attorney

Also Serving Broward & Palm Beach Counties

Domestic violence arrests are common in Miami and around the state. These arrests occur when law enforcement are called to the scene of a domestic disturbance between couples or household members. What can start out as an argument can escalate into a heated dispute and a call to the police. Once law enforcement is called in, their obligation is to ensure the safety of those involved. They will generally arrest whom they believe to be the primary aggressor. This can occur even if the alleged victim wishes to let the matter go or to withdraw any complaint. Law enforcement believe the safest way to handle these incidents is to make an arrest and let the courts determine the outcome. 

Unfortunately, if you are charged with a domestic violence crime, it can lead to serious consequences.
