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. With a capable attorney on your side, you have the chance to avoid formal charges altogether. If charges have already been filed, your lawyer may be able to negotiate a lesser charge or litigate your case in court and win. Either way, you will be better off with an attorney to protect your rights.

Get the Defense You Need for Your Child Abuse Case in Miami

Regardless of the charges that are brought against you, you have rights under the U.S. Constitution. You have the right to remain silent. You have the right to an attorney.

You may be treated as though you are already guilty, and if you do not have a defense attorney to protect your rights, you may be found guilty in court for a crime that you did not commit. Don't take a chance with your rights and your future. Consult a Miami child abuse defense lawyer at Hager & Schwartz immediately and find out what can be done to safeguard your rights and interests.
