Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

Being charged with a DUI has the ability to significantly and negatively impact your life. You may lose anything from your license to your freedom. Without the ability to drive, you stand to lose your job, educational opportunities, ability to travel, and time with loved ones. Without proper representation, you may also face incarceration, which will have a lasting negative impact on the rest of your life. Because the consequences can be so dire, it is important that you hire an attorney who can handle the complexities that are involved in DUI cases. All circumstances of the charge must be thoroughly investigated and examined for proper legal procedures. We will assess the context surrounding your charges, including any violations that may have been made by authorities, and get you the best outcome possible for your unique case. The sooner you contact us, the better the outcome of your case may be.

Domestic Violence/Battery

Domestic violence cases often garner much media attention and community outcry. Because of this, lawmakers have been prompted to impose harsh penalties upon those who are found guilty. While these penalties may prove useful in certain circumstances, unfortunately, this aggressive stance on domestic violence has lead to over-prosecution of individuals who are actually innocent. This has torn families apart across our state. In our experience, members of our firm have seen the difference that hiring an attorney can make when it comes to cases of domestic violence, including battery, assault, restraining orders, harassment, and trespass, among other areas. At our firm, we will focus on proving your innocence and obtaining the best outcome, while also doing what is best for the family unit involved in the case.

Felonies

If you have been charged with a felony in Florida, it is absolutely critical that you contact an attorney immediately. By definition, felonies are extremely serious crimes and can come with harsh penalties including incarceration or even the death penalty, depending on the severity of the case. You can also be fined monetarily, in increasing increments, depending upon the degree of felony you are found guilty of. Felonies encompass a wide variety of crimes, and may include (but are certainly not limited to) aggravated battery, drug crimes, child abuse, homicide, fraud, and certain firearm charges. To ensure that you are treated fairly during the judicial process, it is imperative that you have an attorney who is experienced in defending felony charges. If you are not properly represented throughout the development of your case, you may face unnecessarily harsh penalties, which have the ability to significantly impact your life and the life of your loved ones. Thus, if you have been charged with a felony, please contact our office as soon as possible, it may make the difference between freedom and incarceration.

Misdemeanors

Though misdemeanors may pose less significant penalties than felonies, they are by no means less serious when it comes to the potential impact on your life. These crimes can still lead to hefty fines and even incarceration. Even the least severe misdemeanors can result in jail time. Any time your freedom is at stake, it is essential that you contact an attorney who has experience representing individuals who have been charged with similar crimes. At our firm, we have represented clients in a variety of misdemeanor cases. Types of misdemeanors include, but are not limited to simple assault or trespass, invalid drivers license, disorderly conduct, petit theft, vandalism, shoplifting, and certain drug possession crimes. Like felonies, misdemeanors are classified by degrees, which come with increased penalties depending upon severity of the charges. If you have been charged with a misdemeanor, don’t make the mistake of going it alone, it may just cost you your freedom. Contact our office today to ensure proper representation throughout your misdemeanor case.

Traffic Violation

Florida takes traffic violations seriously, whether it is anything from a simple moving violation to a charge of reckless driving. Any violations involving vehicles may come with significant penalties, as they have the potential to cause injury to other motorists. As such, it is important to consult an attorney when you have been arrested or charged with traffic crimes, including leaving the scene of an accident, fleeing or eluding, driving with a suspended license, or driving under the influence (DUI). Even a seemingly minor traffic ticket or citation can cause serious issues, especially for individuals who have multiple violations on their record. To avoid losing your license, or even harsher penalties such as incarceration, it is important to contact an attorney to help you through your traffic case. Don’t take traffic violations lightly, they may just have a significant and long lasting impact on your life, especially if you don’t have adequate legal representation. To ensure that you achieve the best outcome for your traffic violations or crimes, contact our firm today. We have the experience needed to seamlessly guide you through your case.
