If you, or a loved one, have been arrested for any act of domestic violence, domestic battery, or a violation of a restraining order (or injunction), you should consult with an experienced attorney immediately. At the Law Offices of David Golden, P.A., we are proud of our success in defending our clients from various claims of domestic violence. We understand how volatile some relationships can be (sometimes through no fault of the accused), or how truly twisted a complainant may be, even to the extent they completely fabricate the allegations just in order to stay in the residence, exclusively. We have also witnessed the ugliness and potentially devastating consequences of false allegations made for tactical gain in the divorce process.
In Martin County, St. Lucie County, Indian River County, and Okeechobee County, getting arrested for most domestic violence offenses means having to sit in jail with no bond. At the first appearance hearing a judge may set an affordable bond, but will also, most likely, make it a condition of release that the Accused have no contact with the alleged victim. Just as most people had no idea how easy it was to be arrested, they also have no idea how easy it is to be rearrested and now face charges of felony witness tampering. If you, or a loved one have been, or, may be, released from jail while facing domestic violence allegations, the best free legal advice you could receive before scheduling your Free Consultation with The Law Offices of David Golden, P.A., is that the Accused should have no contact, whatsoever, with the complainant, nor, have anyone else speak with them.
