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.

Criminal defense cases we can handle for our clients include:
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 cost thousands and damage a persons livelihood and reputation. Felony and federal criminal 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, people from all walks of life get arrested and a criminal background can leave a negative mark on their background. This can lead to difficulties with furthering education, obtaining student loans and limit housing and employment options.
