Domestic violence attorneys Sean L. Collin, Philip M. Snyder and Nabeel K. Basit provide courtroom defense for people charged with criminal domestic violence charges throughout South Florida as well as temporary and permanent restraining orders.

Mr. Snyder and Mr. Basit were formerly domestic violence prosecutors at the State Attorney’s Office. Not many attorneys in South Florida have experience handling both domestic violence matters and divorce matters, as many of the issues intersect, especially when minor children are involved.

Unfortunately, allegations of domestic violence are common in divorce proceedings as it is a tactic to remove one of the parties from the marital residence. We aggressively fight to protect our party’s interests. Our domestic violence attorneys have experience representing both the Petitioner (alleged victim) and Respondent (alleged offender). If you are the Petitioner, we will do everything in our power to make sure you are safe from violence. If you are the Respondent (and the allegations are bogus), we will fight like hell to expose the Petitioner’s lies, repair your reputation and get you back in the marital residence and seeing your children, when applicable.

What is domestic violence?

“Domestic violence” means any assault, aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual assault, sexual battery, stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping, false imprisonment, or any criminal offense resulting in physical injury or death of one family or household member by another family or household member (Florida Statute 741.28).

“Family or household member” means spouses, former spouses, persons related by blood or marriage, persons who are presently residing together as if a family or who have resided together in the past as if a family, and persons who are parents of a child in common regardless of whether they have been married. With the exception of persons who have a child in common, the family or household members must be currently residing or have in the past resided together in the same single dwelling unit.
