‍How to Discreetly Report Domestic Violence

Assaults and battery disputes that occur within the household and among family members fall under the category of domestic violence. Hence, if you find yourself in this situation, it’s imperative that you contact a domestic violence lawyer in West Palm Beach. But, how can you discreetly report such violence? Here are some routes you can take to put a stop to these assaults.

Methods to Report Domestic Violence Anonymously

Call 911

If you know someone who is a victim of domestic violence, calling 911 to report it immediately can save their lives. You can tell the law enforcement authorities that you are reporting the violence anonymously so they can withhold your name in case someone wants to know who reported the incident.

If you’re asked how you know that someone is domestically being abused, you can say “I heard it,” instead of saying, “I live next door and can hear it.” In this way, no one will know that you’re the one reporting the incident.

Contact the Domestic Violence Hotline

Aside from calling 911, you also have the option to report the incident to the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233). The hotline is available 24 hours and free of charge. If you’re situated in Florida, you can call directly to the Florida Domestic Violence Hotline (+1 (800) 500-1119).

What To Do After Reporting the Incident

Once you’ve reported the domestic violence anonymously and you think that the victim needs help, you can reach out to the victim. Just make sure that the abuser is away. You can give the victim the domestic violence hotline and other useful materials such as pamphlets for domestic violence shelters. Another thing, don’t forget to remind the victim to hide these materials from the abuser.

Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”

Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."

Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”

The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
