Domestic Violence


Attorney John M. Howe represents individuals accused of domestic violence in and around West Palm Beach. With over 20 years of criminal defense experience, South Florida domestic violence lawyer, Attorney John M. Howe, has defended hundreds of domestic violence cases in court.

State attorneys and the State of Florida take domestic violence charges very seriously. An officer called to the scene of a domestic disturbance will almost always arrest a person accused of spousal abuse, despite all efforts by the victim to prevent it or later drop domestic violence charges.

What types of domestic violence penalties do I face?

If convicted on domestic violence charges in Florida, you may face incarceration, formal probation, 12 months of battery treatment classes, fines, restitution and a permanent criminal record. In addition, if you are not a United States citizen, a conviction, plea of not guilty, or no contest will make you removable (subject to deportation).

If you have been arrested for spousal battery or domestic abuse, you need an experienced domestic violence firm to represent you. The Law Office of John M. Howe, has spent the past 20 years defending Palm Beach County residents facing criminal charges. Whether you wish to enter into a plea or take your case to trial, we have the knowledge and experience required to help guide you through the process.
