Tampa Domestic Violence Lawyer
Due to the recession, domestic violence cases have exploded in frequency in the State of Florida. Most domestic violence cases arise from divorce cases that seek to dissolve long-term relationships. As a former prosecutor, Richard M. Rocha, Tampa domestic violence lawyer, prosecuted numerous domestic violence cases during his tenure with the Office of the State Attorney. Based on that experience, he is able to successfully defend persons arrested for domestic violence.
Many times, the victim (girlfriend, spouse) signs a Waiver of Prosecution with the state attorney’s office. Unfortunately, the decision on whether to prosecute crimes resides with the state attorney. Often times the state will proceed to prosecute an individual even when the victim has withdrawn or waived prosecution. A persistent, experienced domestic violence lawyer will seek alternatives to trial in an effort to have the case dismissed.
