Child Abuse

Miami Child Abuse Defense Attorney

Accused of Child Abuse in Miami-Dade County, FL?

A child abuse accusation is extremely serious. Not only do you face criminal penalties (jail time, fines, counseling and more) but you also may lose custody of your child or children or have a restraining order or order of protection issued against you that prohibits you from coming in contact with your child. The social stigma associated with a person who has been accused of child abuse can also greatly impact your reputation, your job and your relationships.

A Miami child abuse defense attorney who is experienced in dealing with child abuse cases is your best bet if you have been accused of physically, emotionally or physically abusing a child.
