Domestic Violence

St.Petersburg and Tampa Defense Attorney Domestic Violence Charges and Injunctions

At The Denson Firm, our Florida domestic violence lawyer provides criminal defense for people facing domestic violence or spousal abuse charges in courts in the St. Petersburg / Tampa Bay area.

Many times, a domestic violence charge is made during a difficult divorce. Sometimes the charge is a lie, meant to get a husband out of the house so a wife can gain the upper hand in a divorce and child custody case. Sometimes the allegation is true and a spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend lost control during a difficult situation.

Domestic abuse situations are complex. The police may have only one part of the picture. Whatever your situation is, you deserve to be heard, to understand the charges and the consequences, and to have your rights defended in court.

If you have been arrested for domestic assault, contact a Florida domestic violence lawyer at The Denson Firm.

Domestic Violence Injunctions and Divorce Cases

If your spouse has gotten a restraining order or injunction against you, you need a Florida domestic violence lawyer to get your defense in order quickly. The first order of no contact is only a temporary injunction. You have only one to two weeks to build a defense so it is important to hire an attorney as soon as possible.

St. Petersburg attorney Bruce Denson works in cooperation with many divorce lawyers in the area to defend clients at an injunction hearing or a criminal proceeding while ensuring that the simple assault or assault and battery case has a limited effect on the family law case.

In over eight years of law practice in the St. Petersburg area, we have successfully handled many domestic violence cases. Our Florida domestic violence lawyer immediately begins to evaluate the allegations against you and prepare a strategy to challenge and refute those allegations in court. We also aggressively defend clients who have been charged with violating a domestic violence injunction or retraining order.

We know this is a very difficult time. You may have been barred from your home and may be afraid of losing contact with your children. You can count on your defense attorney at The Denson Firm to stand by you every step of the way, to explain the process, and to give you sound advice in how to proceed.
