Florida prosecutors and courts take driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol very seriously. Prosecutors are more than willing to throw the book at an unwary defendant in order to score political points. Even a first-time DUI can lead to jail time and a revoked license, while repeat offenses can result in months or years in jail and other long-term consequences. Our DUI defense lawyer is ready to help you fight overly-aggressive DUI prosecution, protecting your license, your record, and your freedom.
If you’re under investigation for white-collar crimes, or if you’ve already been arrested and charged, it’s vital that you get the right legal team on your side as soon as possible. Fraud, identity theft, computer and internet crimes, and other white-collar charges can be stacked on top of one another to allow prosecutors to push for exorbitant fines and decades-long prison terms. Make sure you’ve got a white-collar criminal defense lawyer who is ready to handle the complex, sensitive nature of your charges to protect your reputation, your business, and your freedom.
Florida may be a pro-gun state, but there are still plenty of criminal offenses related to the unlawful possession or use of weapons. Using a weapon in connection with another offense–such as armed robbery–can lead to the prosecution pushing for enhanced charges. Florida law also criminalizes the unlicensed possession of a firearm and possession of a firearm in certain locations or by certain people, such as convicted felons. Protect your rights and your freedom with help from a zealous weapons offense defense lawyer.

Three Strikes Defense
Florida’s three strikes law allows prosecutors to push for elevated penalties for defendants with three or more violent felony convictions. The law requires judges to assign mandatory minimum sentences for defendants, which can range from five years to life in prison. To avoid the worst consequences of being labeled a “habitual offender,” you need stellar legal advice and representation from a seasoned Florida criminal defense attorney.
