If you have been accused of domestic violence, you must act quickly if you hope to avoid serious punishment. In many cases, the accusations are totally false, or are even related to a bitter divorce in which one party wants to ruin the reputation of the other in order to win a custody battle. Even if the alleged victim later recants, only the prosecutor can dismiss the charges. These cases always require a strong defense, even when the charges are false.
If you are arrested and charged, you may be convicted unless fast and effective action is taken on your behalf. It is imperative that you enlist legal counsel from a Fort Myers criminal attorney from Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law at once.

As this offense can be charged as either a felony or misdemeanor, your case must be immediately analyzed to determine how your defense can move forward. There are often many opportunities to ameliorate the situation for our client, including alternative sentencing or anger management treatments, among other possibilities. We will aggressively pursue any option that will protect our client and help them avoid jail or prison time for the offense.
In cases in which the charges were false, a cross examination of the accuser and other witnesses can often benefit the client.
