Criminal Case Information in Florida

Retain my firm's skillful representation for any of the following types of criminal offenses:

  • Domestic Violence: Domestic violence charges can apply to any instance of physical abuse, emotional abuse, battery, or intimate partner violence. Whether stemming from a pattern of behavior that involves the abuse of one partner against another or an isolated incident, domestic violence is a criminal action that can result in substantial penalties as well as restraining orders.
  • Driving Under the Influence: An individual 21 years or older with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% can be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) in Florida. DUI-related intoxication levels can be determined through a field sobriety test or chemical test after law enforcement pulls a driver over for exhibiting signs of drunkenness.
  • Drug Crimes: An arrest for any type of crime can be stressful and difficult to deal with because even the smallest drug crime can result in a driver's license suspensions and other penalties and consequences that affect many aspects of your life. You can be arrested for a variety of drug crimes, such as possession, trafficking, and manufacturing. Penalties are severe because the state of Florida views drugs as a catalyst for many other crimes.
  • Juvenile Crimes: If your minor has been charged with an offense, you must obtain legal help at once. Depending on the specific crime, your child could be prosecuted as an adult. Harsh penalties await juveniles who are convicted of crimes. Consult my firm to learn more about prosecution and defense of minors and the differences between the juvenile justice system and the regular justice system.
  • Probation Violation: Probation violations in Florida can result in much more serious penalties than were associated with the original charge. Probation offers a convicted person the chance to complete their sentence outside of jail or prison; therefore, anyone who violates this privilege can be charged in a harsher manner. Probation violations can include failure to comply with probationary terms, commission of a new crime, and other offenses.
  • Sex Crimes: If you are accused of a sex crime, you not only face the possibility of criminal charges but also may incur irreversible damage to your reputation. A conviction may also result in job loss, financial damage, and strained relationships. Common sex crimes include rape, sexual battery, and statutory rape.
  • Theft Crimes: Severe consequences and repercussions await people who are charged with a theft crime in Florida. With a conviction, you may face jail time, fines, probation, and the loss of future occupational opportunities. Common theft offenses include shoplifting, petty theft, grand theft, and burglary.
  • Traffic Offenses: Although traffic offenses do not typically carry consequences as severe as other criminal convictions, people who have been charged with speeding or other crimes can face serious consequences. If convicted, you could be sentenced to heavy fines, traffic school, and incur points on your driver's license.
  • Violent Crimes: Crimes committed against another person that are violent in nature are considered violent crimes. These offenses are often the most damaging to an individual's life because they carry the most severe penalties. If you have been charged with homicide, robbery, child abuse, battery, assault, or another violent crime, you must take action and secure the representation of my firm.
