South Apopka, Florida, at just 2.5 square miles, possesses nearly 6,000 residents. On the plus side, South Apopka is a very affordable place to live with near-perfect weather and is close to all of the amenities that the Orlando-Kissimmee area has to offer.

What does this mean for you if you’ve been charged with a crime? Does it mean that you are less likely to be considered innocent until proven guilty? Or does it mean that law enforcement has unfairly targeted you as a suspicious person because you are in South Apopka?

Everyone charged with a crime deserves a vigorous criminal defense and fair trial. At Katz & Phillips, P.A., our South Apopka criminal defense attorneys stand between you and potential jail time. Our lawyers may boost your chances if you want to avoid a conviction.

Vigorous Defense for Serious Criminal Charges

Crimes of a less serious nature can be dismissed, or a plea bargain reached that includes fines but not jail time. The charges that are of a less serious nature can be dropped altogether. Felony charges are another matter. If a prosecutor has charged someone with a felony, there is a high likelihood that the prosecutor will put more time and energy into the case.

That’s where our South Apopka criminal defense attorneys can help. Our attorneys are former prosecutors who understand not only the law, but the tactics and strategies the other side will use. When it comes to defense of a felony charge, it pays to have experienced attorneys on your side.

At our law firm we represent those charged with felonies and serious or violent crimes including, but not limited to:

  • Drug crimes including drug possession, marijuana cultivation, possession with intent to sell, prescription drug crimes and drug trafficking
  • Sex crimes including child molestation, child pornography, failure to register, indecent exposure, prostitution, rape and sexual assault
  • Theft crimes including burglary, carjacking and robbery
  • Violent crimes including aggravated assault, aggravated battery, assault, child abuse, kidnapping, murder and manslaughter
