Child Abuse

The Road To Resolution Starts Here Aggressive Representation When You Need It The Most

Bartow Child Abuse Attorney

Have you been accused of committing child abuse?

Being accused of child abuse is a traumatic experience for anyone. If the accusation is a false one, there is a whole host of emotions that the accused might experience, such are fear, stress, anger, depression, embarrassment, and more. It, however, is important to realize that an accusation is not a conviction.

Still, while an accusation is not the same as a formal charge (or a conviction), the accused must legally defend him or herself against the allegations in order to clear his or her name in an effort to avoid jail or prison. Beyond that, they must also face the consequences in public, as well. Friends or family members may look at them differently, it may lead to the loss of a job, or even being ostracized.

At Advocate Law Firm, P.A., I am dedicated to helping the accused protect their freedoms by using every legal resource to prove their innocence. Click here to request a case evaluation.

What Is Considered a Child Abuse Allegation?

Accusations of child abuse may be made by anyone—such as a neighbor, teacher, or even a spouse—and may take many forms. For example, one of the most controversial forms of accusations of child abuse is spanking a child, which was widely considered an acceptable form of punishment just 10 to 15 years ago.

Child abuse allegations may be in the form of the following:

  • Physical Abuse;
  • Sexual Abuse;
  • Neglect; and
  • Physiological Abuse.

Depending upon they type and severity of the alleged abuse, a conviction may result in jail time or a significant prison term of up to life imprisonment. If the abuse directly results in the death of a child, additional charges may be charges to include levels of manslaughter or murder.

If accused of child abuse, it is advised that, before giving any statement, you first speak to an attorney who is experienced in these types of cases. Call my firm today for the help you need!

  • I couldn't have asked for more!

    I just want to publicly show my gratitude to Ms. Salvia and the rest of the team that worked on my recent case. I really felt I was represented well by Ms. Salvia and she took the lead in making strong points for my case. She was able to properly vocalize what I needed and look out for things that I didn't even consider. She is very experienced. I couldn't have asked for more. Thank you so much for help and professionalism.

  • Martha and the rest of the team constantly kept me in the loop of all that was occurring

    There was never a time that I was alone in my divorce process. The staff/team was in contact communication with me. Any questions, concerns or issues I may have had, they were front and center ready to help me through the process and educate me on what the next steps were. Divorce in and of itself is a very emotional, trying and frustrating process. Martha and the rest of the team constantly kept me in the loop of all that was occurring, what was needed, any changes that were coming and how to properly handle them. Thank you so much for making a stressful and life changing event, easier to navigate.

  • Honesty, integrity and a fighter!

    I don't typically write reviews however, in this "case" it is warranted. Having gone through a protracted and tumultuous divorce lasting almost five years would leave any living and breathing human hating lawyers even their own. well, I must say I am left with a gratitude for all the hard work, patience and guidance given me throughout my process. I would recommend Melissa Wilson to anyone that is looking for Honesty, integrity and a fighter where it counts... CASE CLOSED!!!! and so is mine. cant forget Martha her assistant, taking my calls always and listening to me vent. Thank you all in that office Sincerely Niko
