St. Augustine Domestic Battery Defense Lawyers
Domestic Violence Charges in St. Johns, Florida
Domestic battery occurs when a person commits a battery on a victim who is a spouse, former spouse, or relative. This crime may also involve people who live together or formerly lived together, as well as people who have children together.
Domestic battery is a first-degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in jail. This charge may also be filed as a felony if a person who has been previously convicted of misdemeanor battery is accused of committing a second misdemeanor battery.

At the Albaugh Law Firm, one of our attorneys spent more than four years as a domestic violence prosecutor. Attorney Ryan Albaugh thoroughly understands the way that prosecutors approach these cases. He also knows the importance of requesting that the no-contact order be modified so that the alleged “offender” is again allowed to come home. Failing to address the no-contact order can have a devastating impact on families and their finances if one spouse is forced to live elsewhere during the duration of the case.
At the Albaugh Law Firm in St. Augustine, we also know what facts to look for while investigating domestic violence cases and how to exploit shortcomings in the prosecution’s evidence so as to ensure the most favorable result possible for you as a client, whether that means a case dismissal or completing a diversion program. A diversion program could allow your arrest to be removed from your criminal record.
