Defense to Depend On Call the Miami criminal defense attorneys at Hager & Schwartz, P.A. to get started on your defense!



Have you been accused of spousal abuse or domestic violence in Miami Dade or Broward County, Florida? If so, you need to act quickly and retain the services of a skilled Miami spousal abuse attorney who can protect your rights. A spousal abuse accusation can easily lead to a restraining order or an order of protection, meaning that you may have to leave the house that you share with your spouse - even if you own that home or pay the rent. You may also face criminal charges, which can result in months or years of imprisonment, fines and mandatory counseling. With an experienced and aggressive lawyer on your side, however, you can avoid these consequences.


Unfortunately, our attorneys have come across situations where spousal abuse charges were based off false accusations. The driving force behind these accusations may be anger, resentment or revenge. During a divorce, one spouse may also try to accuse the other with spousal abuse, domestic violence or child abuse in an effort to gain custody of children. By thoroughly investigating your case, reviewing physical evidence and interviewing witnesses, your defense attorney can prove that the accusations brought against you are actually false or based upon no hard evidence.


The criminal defense attorneys at Hager & Schwartz, P.A. are experienced in dealing with spousal abuse cases. We have offices in Miami Dade County, Broward County, Palm Beach, Fort Pierce and Volusia Counties and offer criminal defense representation to people throughout Florida. Whether you have been charged with physical abuse, assault, emotional abuse, spousal rape or sexual abuse, an attorney at our offices may be able to help.
