As a Jacksonville, Florida criminal defense attorney and a Florida family law lawyer, I deal with cases of domestic violence quite often. Many times, the allegations are warranted and many times, they are not. If an injunction for protection against domestic violence is granted against a person then the federal law states that that person no longer has the right to own a firearm. Likewise, if a person is arrested on a criminal charge of domestic violence and pleads to a lesser charge, that person will not be allowed to possess or own a firearm since the original charge was domestic violence. It is extremely important to contact a Florida family lawyer and/or Florida criminal defense lawyer if either of these two situations happen to you.
