Florida laws place very serious penalties on many crimes. In the case of violent crimes, defendants can expect to face penalties including incarceration if they are convicted. Most defendants don't want to be pulled away from their families to serve that incarceration. While we can't promise the outcome of your case, we can work on your behalf to minimize the penalties that you might face if you are convicted.
We know that the ultimate goal of almost all criminal defense cases is to be found not guilty. When this isn't something that is likely, we can help you to explore the possible options that might give you at least some measure of control over the outcome. Maybe we can work out a plea deal that will let you get a specific sentence that you are able to prepare for ahead of time. Maybe we can work out something that results in you facing reduced charges.
We may be able to find evidence to call into question. We might have to try to get some evidence thrown out. In every case, we need to look at the specific and unique circumstances to determine what strategies we should pursue.
It is important that you understand what is going on with your case, especially if you are facing very serious charges. As we go through the evidence in your case and try to build your defense based on the things that prosecution alleges you did, we will discuss the options with you. We know that we need to work on a trial defense just in case no other alternative is found to resolve the case before the trial occurs.
