Dealing With Battery Charges
Our Attorneys Can Help Fight Your Battery Charges
When an individual intentionally touches or strikes a person against their will; or intentionally causes bodily harm to another person, the person who committed the act may then be charged with battery under Florida State laws. However, the prosecution will need to prove several things in order to obtain a conviction. If you are facing battery charges, you should retain an experienced attorney as soon as possible.

The individual may be charged with felony battery if the individual has been previously convicted of battery.
