Domestic Violence Divorce Attorney

Sean L. Collin, Nabeel K. Basit and Ayla Walker represent spouses who have been victims of domestic violence or those who have been accused of domestic violence.


Mr. Basit was a former domestic violence prosecutor at the Broward County State Attorney’s Office. Not many attorneys in South Florida have the experience of handling both domestic violence matters and divorce matters though many of these issues intersect, especially when minor children are involved.


Unfortunately, allegations of domestic violence are common in divorce proceedings as a tactic to remove one of the parties from the marital residence. We aggressively fight to protect our clients’ 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. Domestic violence should NEVER be tolerated.  If you are the Respondent, and the allegations are false, we will aggressively fight to expose the Petitioner’s lies, repair your reputation and get you back into the marital residence and seeing your children as soon as possible.


On the other hand, if you are the Respondent, and the allegations are true or mostly true, we will do everything in our power to minimize the damage and get you the help you need. An act of poor judgment should not define your life.


Whether you are the Petitioner or the Respondent, it is crucial that you speak with an experienced attorney as soon as possible as your life and liberty could be at stake. Speak with us before the Department of Children and Families become involved. You should not be dealing with this alone.


In the event of an arrest or possible criminal charges, we have experience on how to proceed. Swift action and preparation are of the utmost importance.   


Contact our domestic violence and restraining order attorneys at Lyons, Snyder & Collin 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 954-462-8035  for your free consultation. We are here to help.

I found Sean Collin through Google search, I'm glad that I did! After having few lawyers and a bad mediation agreement, I came to Sean hopeless and insecure. He was able to give me solutions to the situation I was in. After going to court and trying to settle my mediation agreement, Sean was able to help in changing my mediation agreement and finalize everything towards my favor! Now, once is completely over, I could not be thankful enough to Sean Collin and his team for their understanding, professionalism and caring! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is in need! I can't thank them enough for being there during difficult times!

My experience with Lyons, Snyder & Collin , PA law firm has been a great one. I am very happy with how Mr. Snyder handled my car accident case with the results. I have nothing but good things to say about them.The staff is extremely professional. Anytime I had questions or concerns, I would call and Martha or my attorney Philip Snyder would always have an answer for me. Their follow up before and after my surgery was outstanding. They care about their clients well being.I have texted and called the staff at any time and have always received an immediate answer that was detailed.They exceeded my expectations . I have highly recommended them to family and friends and will continue. This is a very professional, courteous and caring group which work hard for their clients.Thank you Martha for always being so pleasant and to my Attorney Phill Snyder for all you did for me.

These are caring professionals! I would only recommend my family or friends to see them. I was fortunate to have the help of Phil Snyder who is one of the most helpful and thorough lawyers you will ever meet. He cares about his clients very much and it’s easy to see. Also, Martha was incredible in the office! She also is helping make the magic happen. I highly recommend!

Phillip, and his team excel in communication, and are ahead of the curb. Martha is lovely, and she is quick to reply. Part of being successful is the team you build, and surround yourself with. This is exactly that and more. Phillip is always considerate, caring and compassionate. He wants the best for his clients and is passionate about what he does. I had an unfortunate situation, and for him I am thankful. I could not have asked for a better team, and if ever I need anything legally, I feel confident in knowing that they will steer me in the right direction. Trust me, you want them to take care of you!!!! -Gaby

5.0 star rating 12/9/2019 I was going through a difficult divorce. I was a single mom with 3 children, and I was not receiving any child support. A friend referred me to Sean Collin. I went to see Sean. He was knowledgeable, helpful with all my concerns, and compassionate through the most difficult time in my life. The results of my divorce, are better then I hoped for. Sean and his team, went above and beyond, and always kept me informed. I would highly recommend Sean and his team to my family and friends. Thank you Sean, for everything you did for me and my children!!!
