The law firm of Leskovich Law Group, P.A. is focused on fighting for and protecting the rights of those who are facing criminal charges in Punta Gorda and the surrounding area. We firmly believe that our success - which partly attributes to our excellent training, education, and experience - is mainly a result of the fact that we go to trial. If you are facing charges of any kind, we could provide the competent defense that you need to obtain a dismissal.
Fearless Representation in the Courtroom
As seasoned trial lawyers, our legal team includes former prosecutors and public defenders that have personal experience in the enemy's shoes. We understand how they could react and could strengthen your defense to counter their moves. Our firm has been in practice for 35 years and has represented thousands of individuals during that time, fighting aggressively to obtain the dismissals they deserve. We are also fully prepared to take your case to trial if necessary, instead of doing everything we can to plea out and avoid the courtroom like many attorneys do. Our team has handled hundreds of jury trials to verdict and will fearlessly and vigorously represent you before a judge and jury if it could obtain the best outcome for your case.
How is a trial attorney different than any other lawyer?
Nowadays, most attorneys will attempt to resolve your case through a plea bargain, where they negotiate with the prosecutor to obtain reduced charges. The problem with plea bargains is that they usually involve compromise, where you plead guilty to some or all of your charges in exchange for a lighter sentence and no trial. At Leskovich Law Group, P.A., we are not afraid to go to trial if it could result in a dismissal of your charges. You should never have to pay the consequences for a crime when you have been wrongfully accused, or suffer harsher penalties than you deserve.
Former Public Defenders & Prosecutors
The legal team at Leskovich Law Group, P.A. could provide another advantage for clients in the form of prior prosecution experience. Attorneys from our firm are former public defenders and prosecutors, meaning that we have a personal understanding of your opponents' thoughts and strategies. Also, since our lawyers work collaboratively on cases, there is very little chance that any possible defense tactic will go unnoticed or unconsidered. We will work together to examine your case from all angles and provide a thorough defense from every side.
One mistake that many defendants make is assuming that they will be alright because their offense is "not that serious." This is a dangerous way of thinking; even misdemeanor offenses can be punished by heavy fines and jail time. Criminal convictions of any kind and for any offense could turn your life upside down, so do not hesitate to retain a skilled criminal defense attorney. Call the offices of Leskovich Law Group, P.A. today if you have been arrested in Punta Gorda.
