Have You Been Charged With Domestic Violence?
Act quickly — call Fort Lauderdale domestic violence lawyer Gerard S. Williams at (954) 358-1497.
The state of Florida has strong laws on the books to protect people from being assaulted by family and household members. Many domestic violence cases are exactly what these laws exist for, to restrain unacceptable behavior.
But the truth is that most domestic violence cases are very messy. It's uncertain who did what, or who was the aggressor, but the police are determined to take someone away in handcuffs. Sometimes the law is "gamed" by one partner seeking advantage in an upcoming custody case.
