Cases We Handle

There are more than 300 different criminal charges in the state of Florida. Whether you are accused of a felony, misdemeanor or DUI, our law firm has the experience and the resources necessary to defend against any criminal charge. In Florida, crimes are treated as either a misdemeanor or felony charge. Depending upon the type of criminal charge, the potential penalties differ tremendously. If convicted, an accused could be sentenced by a judge to any of the following maximum or minimum penalties:

A first degree misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 1 year in the county jail or a minimum penalty of court cost. A second degree misdemeanor carries a maximum penalty of 60 days in the county jail or a minimum penalty of court cost. Felony charges are broken down into three different degrees. First degree felonies can be punishable by a maximum of life in prison. Second degree felonies have a maximum punishment of 15 years in prison. Lastly, a third degree felony has a maximum punishment of 5 years in Florida state prison. In all felony cases, the state of Florida has created a very complicated scoring system in order to determine if an accused scores any mandatory prison time. Additionally, in cases involving either drug trafficking, a firearm, or assault of a law enforcement officer, there are minimum mandatory jail sentences that must be imposed if convicted. Lastly, the juvenile justice system has very specific guidelines; however most Juvenile Judges have a tremendous amount of discretion regarding the possible penalties.
