Our Criminal Defense Areas of Expertise

If you have been arrested for a crime, you need proper representation. Criminal lawyers handle cases such as burglary, DOMV injunctions, domestic violence, sexual battery and rape, weapons and firearms charges, and lewd and lascivious behavior, just to name a few. Here is some additional information on a few common charges:

Assault & Battery

The specific crime you are charged with may be assault, aggravated assault, battery, felony battery, or aggravated battery. Each has a slightly different definition as well as different punishments. Just by threatening someone, you can be charged with an assault. A good criminal defense attorney will explain to you the specifics of your case and can work to get your charge reduced if it is possible and in your best interest.

If you are convicted of driving under the influence in Florida, you may face fines, jail time, community service hours, and a driver’s license suspension. What type of penalties you face will depend highly on how many past convictions you have and your level of blood alcohol at the time of arrest. But even if you failed a breathalyzer test, there are ways to work towards getting the charges dropped or reduced with the right criminal defense lawyer by your side.

The Importance of Attention To Detail in Criminal Defense

One of the most important aspects of criminal defense is detailed attention to the components of the entire matter. A good attorney can address your concerns, reflect on the trajectory of your case, and negotiate with court officials—all at the same time. Assistance to you may take the form of these services:

  • Accompanying you at arrest.
  • Managing bail.
  • Providing skilled representation in and out of court.
  • Discussing your concerns, providing education on the criminal process.
  • Providing an honest assessment of the facts of your case.

While grounds for arrest are categorized, the details of every arrest are different. Orlando Criminal defense lawyers use experience with the law and knowledge of the court system to determine possible defenses, for example:

  • Proving you did not commit the crime.
  • Pressing presumption of innocence until proven guilty.
  • Self-defense.
  • Impaired judgment / mitigating circumstances.
  • Justification for commission of illegal act.

Criminal defense attorneys also work within the system by:

  • Discussing facts and plea bargains with officers of the court.
  • Creating solutions to meet the needs of clients and the government.

What To Expect When Arrested

When you are arrested in Florida, there are specific procedures as outlined by the law that must be followed. It may be weeks or months before you learn what is going on with your case. Unfortunately, by law, your attorney cannot guarantee any outcome, but they can provide you with potential strategies for your defense and explain the pros and cons of each one. The job of your Florida criminal lawyer is to arm you with the knowledge you need to make informed decisions about your case in order to work towards the best possible outcome.

Before going into a criminal charges, your attorney should explain the details of the crime you are being charged with as well as the penalties you may face as a result.
