Fort Myers Criminal Defense Lawyers For Domestic Violence Charges
Most police departments have a zero-tolerance policy toward domestic violence. If 911 is called, chances are someone is going to jail.
Police responding to a 911 call often rush to judgment and make unwarranted arrests. In doing so, they set into motion a series of events that may affect a family forever. The court often imposes a no-contact order the following morning, and a criminal prosecution moves forward. If you are facing a battery, assault or domestic violence charge, we encourage you to contact Aiken & O’Halloran immediately.

Overcoming False Allegations
Our goal at Aiken & O’Halloran is to mend and heal the family. Counseling and alcohol or substance abuse treatment are often far better alternatives to jail. Parties involved in divorce proceedings often make false accusations to gain a tactical advantage in the divorce. We are keenly aware of the fact that in the heat of the moment, a spouse or a family member may falsely accuse someone of domestic violence or another crime of violence. A verbal argument may escalate to actual violence, but police often make arrests when they are not justified simply to keep the peace.
An arrest may be the culmination or a symptom of a deeper problem in a relationship. Our goal is solving problems and preventing future problems.
