Criminal Defense

Drunk Driving Crimes

If you were involved in an accident while you were intoxicated, you would be arrested and then charged with a DUI and possible further consequences or charges as well. We can help you understand the process you will be going through and ensure you receive fair consequences for your actions. It might include possible community service, paying lower fines or a lesser jail sentence.

In most states, drunk driving charges are considered a misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in jail and fines. Community service may also be required as a consequence of your charges. If you have an extremely high blood content level or multiple drunk driving charges on your record, the consequences may be more severe. It may become a felony charge rather than a misdemeanor.

These cases can be complex and frustrating to handle on your own with little or no legal experience. A trusted and experienced attorney can help you understand the actions you need to take to have a fair case. You and your family can have peace of mind knowing that your attorney will help you have fair consequences. We can help you have the most successful case possible.

Drug Crimes

Drug charges can be considered a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the situation at the time of the arrest. Misdemeanor convictions can result in up to a year in jail, probation, fines and rehabilitation time. Felonies can end up with years of jail time and more significant fines. Either charge can take you away from your family, work and spending your time how you would like. We can help you receive a fair trial. Florida drug crime charges can affect your life for years. An attorney can be a great asset in assisting those charges not to take precedence with employers or housing opportunities.

We can help to get you out of jail, reduce your charges or even clear your name of any charges.

Theft can be considered a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the amount stolen. Burglary is always a felony. Misdemeanors can result in up to a year in jail, fines and community service. Felonies can become years in prison, more considerable fines and probation or rehabilitation. Either charge is considered severe and can be on your record for years. Having those on your record can cause you to lose your current job or not qualify for future employment, as well as housing opportunities.

Attempting to represent yourself against these charges could end in feelings of frustration and disappointment if the results are not what you were expecting.
