When the state of Florida levels criminal charges against you, the consequences can be devastating: to the point they may never stop haunting your ability to work in your chosen field, to rent a home, or even to establish new relationships with others. This may be true even if you do not go to jail. If you’re convicted and incarcerated, the stakes are much higher.

Life can turn sour on a dime. A mistake or misstep, something you may wish you hadn’t done a second later, can have the potential of derailing the rest of your life. You may even be falsely accused of something you would never dream of doing. You should begin fighting from the first moment you realize you have a problem.

You may have heard of us as a premier DUI firm, but our experience doesn’t end there. Our law firm handles all of the following types of criminal proceedings:

  • All aspects of DUI charges, including those involving minors, multiple offenses and drugs
  • Sex offenses, including rape, child molestation, child pornography, prostitution, indecent exposure, child abuse and assault
  • Drug crimes, including possession with the intent to sell
  • Violent crimes, including traffic violations such as hit and run, kidnapping, burglary, assault, battery, robbery, domestic violence, murder, manslaughter and weapons offenses
  • “White collar” crimes, such as forgery, fraud, identity theft, RICO-related offenses and internet crimes
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Military crimes

Don’t assume you’re up against something you can’t beat. Our experienced attorneys can make all the difference. Call our law firm so we can meet with you and begin unraveling the factors of your case to come up with a defense suited for you. For example, if you’re stopped for driving under the influence (DUI) in the Orlando area, several pivotal factors can come into play even before you notice flashing patrol lights behind you. Are you a smoker? That last cigarette you had before you were stopped could potentially cause you to blow over the limit on the Intoxilyzer 8000, the breath test machine used in Florida. The same holds true if you wear dentures. Dental work can trap alcohol for in your mouth for a considerable time and result in a falsely high reading. When you consult with our law firm, we’ll go over every detail of your arrest and the hours preceding it. We’ll look for possible defenses. We can use small details you probably would never consider to poke holes in the state’s case against you.
