Domestic Violence Defense Attorney T. Martin Knopes in Crestview, Florida
“Protecting Your Rights and Your Future”
A conviction for domestic violence battery is very serious. You may be forced from your home. You may lose your child custody or visitation rights. You will lose your right to own a firearm, and getting hired could become more difficult.
If you have been charged with domestic violence battery or contempt of an injunction, or if you are the subject of a temporary restraining order, you should obtain legal representation as soon as possible.
I am Marty Knopes, a lawyer with extensive experience in domestic violence and domestic violence injunction cases. I will work tenaciously to defend you and to minimize any consequences. Contact my firm today to schedule a free initial consultation.
Okaloosa County Domestic Violence Defense Lawyer:
Many domestic violence charges come about because the complaining party is seeking to gain an advantage in a divorce or child custody dispute. In these situations, it is important to aggressively defend the charge, by
presenting an accurate portrayal of the incident.
When you retain me to defend you, I will undertake a thorough review of the events leading to your arrest. Whenever possible, I will seek to obtain a dismissal of the charge. In some cases, I can reach out to the complainant, who may express a desire to have the charge dropped. Other possibilities include getting a deferred prosecution or amending the charge from domestic violence battery to simple battery. If necessary, I will take your case to trial, where I can cross-examine witnesses and place the event in context.
Whatever the circumstances of your case, I will vigorously defend your rights and freedom.
Domestic Violence Injunction Hearings
If someone has obtained a temporary injunction against you, a hearing will be scheduled to determine whether the injunction should be made permanent.
You should not try representing yourself because you may miss an opportunity to prevent the issuance of a permanent injunction. My law firm can represent you in this hearing, presenting evidence in your favor and explaining the event in clear terms that the judge can understand. I will seek to prevent the issuance of a permanent injunction or, at the least, limit its conditions.
