Tampa Domestic Violence Lawyer

At Christopher T. Hersem, P.L., we realize that a domestic violence accusation can often be the result of a misunderstanding or simply a lack of information. Florida Law Enforcement Officers have taken the position that if a domestic violence call is made, someone must be at fault and someone must be arrested, even when the facts and evidence are not clear or evident. With the added theory that the alleged violence is going to continue or increase, once accused, you may find that courts are giving sanctions that disrupt or even destroy lives. You should not attempt to defend yourself in these matters.

While at the Public Defender’s Office, Chris Hersem spent several months in the special “Domestic Violence Courtroom” handling nothing but domestic violence and violation of injunction charges. We can help you to handle these types of cases quickly and efficiently to get your life back on track.


Violation of a term of an injunction or restraining order, knowingly or not, can cause severe legal consequences. Ignorance of the law cannot be used as a defense. It is important that you consult an attorney to advise you on the specifics of your restraining order. If you have already been arrested, it is imperative that you get the help you need to minimize or eliminate criminal punishment.
