Our firm will work collectively to obtain the information we need to defend your case from all sides. Your initial consultation is free of charge, so contact our offices today if you need aggressive defense from any of the following charges:

  • Burglary : A felony theft crime, burglary can be committed in the first, second, or third degree depending on what type of structure was entered and whether or not it was occupied.
  • Drug Crimes : Drug-related offenses such as possession and trafficking can be misdemeanors or felonies. Some cases may even be federal crimes handled by agencies such as the FBI or the DEA.
  • Possession : Drug possession can be a misdemeanor, but most cases are felonies resulting in thousands of dollars in fines and up to 30 years in prison. Make sure you have aggressive defense if you have been charged with possession.
  • Trafficking : Moving illegal drugs from one place to another, usually with the intent to sell or distribute them, is a felony offense resulting in years to decades in state prison, as well as exorbitant fines.
  • DUI Offenses : Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a reckless offense that endangers the lives of others. As a result, a conviction will incur high fines, license suspension, and time in jail.
  • DUI with Injury : If someone is injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, the DUI penalties increase to those of a second degree felony, which include up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
  • Suspended License : To prevent DUI offenders from returning to the roads, a DUI conviction will result in term of license suspension so that the offender cannot legally drive.
  • Federal Crimes : Federal offenses are crimes which are committed against the federal government, or any crime committed on federal property. As such, they are generally handled by federal agencies such as the FBI, DEA, ICE, IRS and the DHS, and all trials are held in federal courts.
  • Internet Crimes : Common internet crimes include identity theft, credit card fraud, hacking, scams and phishing. The state of Florida has extensive laws regarding these offenses and punishes most of them as felonies.
  • Theft Crimes : Shoplifting, burglary, robbery, and other such offenses involve theft of another person's property. Lesser offenses such as shoplifting are misdemeanors, while burglary and robbery are felonies of the first, second or third degree.
  • Violent Crimes : Violent crimes are those involving infliction of bodily harm or death. These offenses are usually felonies and include homicide, manslaughter, assault and battery, and domestic violence.
  • Sex Crimes : Most sex crimes are felonies, including sexual battery, lewd and lascivious molestation and battery, possession of child pornography, and prostitution. Not only will a conviction result in fines and a prison sentence, but offenders may also be required to register as a sex offender for life.
  • White Collar Crimes : When a businessperson commits a crime in the line of work, such as embezzlement, fraud, or money laundering, it is a serious felony offense that could ruin their reputation and future career.
