Domestic Violence


Are You Dealing With Domestic Violence, or Facing Accusations?

Work With An Experienced Fort Lauderdale Domestic Violence Attorney

If you are facing domestic violence charges in Broward, Palm Beach or Miami-Dade counties, reach out to Ft Lauderdale domestic violence attorney Gabriela C. Novo today. As a former prosecutor, Gabriela C. Novo has handled hundreds of domestic violence cases and is prepared to zealously defend you in court.

Domestic Violence is a form of abuse which involves people who know each other, such as partners, spouses, ex spouses, parents and children, or boyfriends and girlfriends. One definition of domestic violence is “intentionally or recklessly causing or attempting to cause bodily injury, or placing another person in reasonable apprehension of imminent, serious bodily injury to himself, herself or another.”

A common challenge in many cases where a person has been accused of or charged with domestic or spousal abuse is public bias. Often, the person arrested is seen as guilty by the public based on the arrest alone, rather than by assessing the facts of the situation. In these cases, prosecutors will attempt to leverage the accuser’s statement and simply ignore other facts in the case. The only thing prosecutors are concerned with is making sure the accused pleads guilty, so you’ll want the most effective Ft Lauderdale domestic violence attorney possible.

Even an accusation of domestic violence must be taken seriously, as the negative consequences may affect the rest of your life emotionally, financially and professionally. An accusation of spousal or domestic abuse may also result in loss of work, child custody issues, a restraining order, and general attack on your character. If you are found guilty of domestic or spousal abuse you will most likely be given a very severe punishment, possibly including:

  • Anger Management Programs
  • Probation
  • Felony Charges
  • Jail Time
  • Counseling
  • Monetary Fines
  • Misdemeanor Charges
  • Loss Of Employment
  • Loss Of Child Custody
  • Restraining Orders / Injunctions

Every year across the United States, approximately four million people are the victims of assault by someone they know. Despite these statistics, many men and women are wrongfully accused of violent acts they did not commit. As you can see, it is extremely important to hire an aggressive and skilled Ft Lauderdale criminal defense attorney to defend your rights during this difficult time.

Novo, we will do everything possible to have your charges dropped, help you avoid jail time, or work towards a reasonable alternative like counseling or probation.
