An Attorney Who Makes Sure Your Side Of The Story Is Heard
In every situation, there are two sides to the story. When you are facing accusations of assault or domestic violence, you want to make sure your side is heard.
In Florida, an assault charge does not necessarily include physical contact with another person, rather it is the threat of perceived harm to the other person. A battery charge refers to when the accused allegedly strikes or touches a person without that person’s consent. Assault and battery can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the severity of the crime.
At Quesada Law Firm, we know how fast things can escalate and how easy it is to misinterpret another person’s intentions. Attorney Marco Quesada will present your side of the story and craft an assault defense that protects you from overzealous prosecution.
A Domestic Violence Conviction May Follow You For Life
Pleading guilty to domestic violence in Miami means much more than jail time and paying fines. If convicted of domestic battery, you face mandatory penalties, including:
- Five days in jail
- 26 weeks in a batterer’s intervention program
- 12 months on probation
- Community service
- Loss of some rights
- An order that prevents contact with the other party
There is also no way to get a domestic violence crime expunged from your record. A guilty plea or a conviction for domestic violence will follow you around for the rest of your life. Contacting a criminal defense lawyer may be crucial to your case. At Quesada Law Firm, we know all the potential punishments and how deeply those could affect your life.
Cases involving a significant other, or a former significant other, can get messy quickly. Letting attorney Quesada handle your case removes you from the situation. Together, you can go over the details of your situation so Marco can decide how best to help you move forward.
