Your Advocates for When You Need Tenacious Defenders

The criminal justice system of the United States has been founded on the principle that everyone should be viewed and treated as innocent until they are proven to be guilty in the court of law. However, it seems that as the years and decades go by, people accused of criminal acts are viewed in a negatively biased light from the moment of their arrest instead of facing neutral judgement. Strong and honest criminal defenders are needed now, more than ever, to uphold the rights of the average American and the decrees of our Constitution.

It is for this reason and many more that Your Advocates are proud to be the Fort Myers criminal defense attorneys you can rely on. For more than 70 years, we have been providing our clients with trustworthy and knowledgeable legal counsel for a wide variety of legal matters, earning us a solid reputation among Florida communities. If you are feeling the pressure of the criminal justice system and do not believe it intends to give you the fair trial you deserve, it is time for you to contact our team.

Criminal Defense Cases We Handle

The legislation of Florida State is extensive, filled with intricate and little-known laws and regulations. Many of our clients have been accused of committing an act that they never knew could be considered criminal. Others still are accused of crimes they never committed, being arrested due to exaggerations, misunderstandings, or falsified claims. Regardless of the evidence against you, the circumstances of your arrest, or the nature of the charges you are facing, you can depend on our Fort Myers criminal defense lawyers for responsive and fast-acting advocacy in your time of need.

Criminal defense cases we can handle for our clients include:

  • Assault and battery
  • Drug crimes
  • DUI
  • Theft crimes
  • White collar crimes

Penalties for the Typical Conviction in Florida

The criminal justice system has become notorious for penalizing convicted offenders in what many see as excessive ways. Misdemeanors and minor crimes can take thousands out of someone’s life and sully their livelihood. Felony and federal crime convictions are even more damaging, locking people up for decades or for life in many instances. If you have been charged with a crime, no matter how insignificant or benign it might seem to you, know that the Florida State criminal justice system is taking it seriously and wants to slam you with as many penalties as it can.

Sentencing used during the convictions of most crimes in Florida can include:

  • High fines ranging into the thousands of dollars
  • Jail time, ranging from a few months to many years
  • Restrictive probationary periods after release
  • Community service or educational courses

Beyond these administrative and criminal penalties, convicts of all walks of life must live with a mark on their criminal record. This single note can strip them of their chances to further their education, live in certain areas, and secure employment.
