Do you live in Pensacola, Escambia, Santa Rosa or Okaloosa County? Have you been the victim of domestic violence? Sometimes the violence happens only once. Sometimes, it is a pattern of abuse. The law firm of Timothy J. Nusser, P.A. has represented many individuals, both men and women, who have been the victim of domestic violence.
Domestic violence may be prosecuted as a criminal matter or relief can be requested in the Family Division of the Circuit Court. If you are being abused by a family or household member or you claim that an allegation alleging domestic violence is false and a Civil Protection Order is being sought, you can contact Timothy J. Nusser, P.A. for representation.
If you are accused of an act of domestic violence which you assert to be false, it is equally important that you take action, too. You have a right to defend yourself against those accusations. An order of protection can affect future employment opportunities, your ability to see your children, deny you your right to possess firearms, and/or require that you attend substance abuse counseling, psychological evaluations, and anger management counseling.
As an experienced attorney in handling domestic violence cases, I offer attentive, compassionate representation. My firm represents both victims of family violence and those who have been accused of domestic abuse.
