David F. Allen provides strong representation for clients

Domestic violence accusations can be followed by serious criminal penalties and other life-altering consequences. If charges are filed against you, retaining an experienced and aggressive Criminal Defense Attorney can provide you with vital security and support. At David F. Allen Attorney at Law LLC, I handle Domestic Violence allegations with skill and professionalism. Clients in the Lake County area and throughout Florida come to me for my results-oriented approach. I will examine police reports and may also conduct independent investigations into the circumstances surrounding your case. I am committed to ensuring that your rights are respected and we achieve the best possible outcome under the law.

Assertive Florida lawyer fights serious criminal accusations and civil injunction hearings

Domestic Violence charges may be brought for an act of violence upon someone with whom the accused had an intimate relationship. They can also be brought when such acts are just threatened. This means that spouses, domestic partners, parents, stepparents, roommates or anyone living in the same household may be accused of domestic violence, even if the threats are texts or emails!

The following acts can be considered domestic violence:

  • Actual or threatened physical harm 
  • Criminal harassment, such as threatening letters, texts or phone calls 
  • Stalking / Cyberstalking (all electronic)
  • Kidnapping 
  • Pushing, hitting, slapping, choking, kicking, biting or throwing objects
  • Sexual assault 
  • Rape 
  • Sexual battery

I will work tirelessly to provide a vigorous defense to these Domestic Violence accusations whether that means a NOT GUILTY verdict, dismissal or a favorable plea agreement.

Strategic advocate asserts your rights and legal protections

I understand how painful and frustrating it can be to have charges filed against you. With your best interests in mind, I can guide you through the steps you should take to protect yourself and keep your situation from getting worse. My strategy is to help you avoid the most serious consequences that can follow a domestic violence charge, which may include:

  • Prison sentence 
  • Permanent restraining order 
  • Inability to return to your house 
  • Inability to see your children 
  • Difficulty finding or keeping a job 
  • Difficulty finding or keeping an apartment 
  • Mandatory enrollment in a six-month domestic violence treatment program 
  • Inability to possess firearms 
  • If an immigrant, loss of immigrant privileges

If you receive a Domestic Violence Injunction (sometimes known as a protective order or restraining order), I can help you fight it in Court. Until a Judge makes modifications, it is crucial to your defense that you follow all aspects of the original Order.
