Experience with a Wide Range of Accusations

Title XLVI of the Florida code lists the behaviors that are defined as crimes. Illegalities include:

  • Weapons crimes
  • Assault and battery
  • Violent crimes, such as homicide
  • Sex crimes, including sexual behavior with minors
  • Drug crimes
  • Property crimes, including theft and robbery
  • White collar crimes
  • Computer crimes
  • Driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol

Katz & Phillips, P.A. has represented clients facing these criminal charges as well as in other situations where transgressions have been alleged. From the time when police first question you or arrest you, our attorneys will be there to guide you.

Our attorneys can help you:

  • Determine which questions to answer when interrogated by police
  • Avoid making incriminating statements and determine when to exercise your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent
  • Determine how to plead at arraignment
  • Determine if any evidence was illegally obtained in violation of your Fourth Amendment rights
  • File pre-trial motions including a motion to dismiss or to have illegally-obtained evidence kept from being presented to a judge or jury during trial
  • Investigate the circumstances of your alleged crime and find ways to introduce reasonable doubt about your guilt
  • Help you find witnesses, including forensic and medical experts, to testify on your behalf
  • Assist you in negotiating a plea bargain with prosecutors or in finding diversion programs to avoid a record of criminal conviction
  • Represent you in trial and in possible appeal

Our attorneys don’t just look for the fastest solution like some lawyers who are quick to plea bargain, but instead we take a strategic approach to your case to help you understand all legal options so you can choose the right path that will potentially minimize the chances of conviction or the penalties you face.
