Crimes are generally categorized as misdemeanors or felonies based on its nature. Felonies involve serious misconduct, but most state criminal laws separate felonies into different classes with varying levels of punishment. Misdemeanors usually entail no more than a year in prison, and lesser offenses such as traffic violations are also a part of criminal law.
We value the severity of a DUI arrest and understand that it can be equivalent to any other criminal matter. While the charge may only be filed as a misdemeanor, the consequences can be everlasting. In addition to fines and criminal consequences, a DUI conviction requires a mandatory adjudication, which cannot be sealed and/or expunged from your record. We take these cases very seriously and work diligently to ensure that you receive the best outcome possible.
It is important that you contact us immediately, as your rights with the Department of Motor Vehicles will need to be preserved within 10 business days from your arrest.
Please contact our office (813-272-2200) for an immediate consultation, if you have been arrested for a DUI or Criminal Traffic offense.
We are experienced in handling Juvenile cases in both Juvenile and Adult Court. We know how to navigate your case through both the court system, but also to assist with your representation at the Department of Juvenile Justice (“DJJ”). This area is also important, as DJJ makes a sentencing recommendation to the court.
There are many services available to Juveniles, and it is important that your attorney is aware of all the options. We work hard to maintain a relationship with community partners, work with community outreach, and fight for our Juvenile Clients.
Please contact us (813-272-2200) immediately if you, or your child is being investigated for a crime or has been arrested.
One of our practice areas is personal injury. We have years of courtroom experience and are dedicated to ensuring that you receive quality representation and obtain fair compensation for injuries caused by the negligence or recklessness of others.
We will take the time to review an accident or injury you have received and determine whether or not there is a valid personal injury claim. Unlike criminal cases, the tort action in personal injury doesn’t involve the government prosecuting the wrongdoer. Instead, private plaintiffs seek compensation for harm and damages caused by the actions of the defendant. Most personal injury cases are based on the doctrine of negligence, and the plaintiff must show that a prudent person in the defendant’s place would’ve acted differently.
Common examples of negligence include medical complications due to a doctor’s carelessness, car accidents caused by drunk drivers and dog bites by roaming animals. In these cases, the responsible party ignored the risk posed to others, and an injury was the result. We handle all types of personal injury cases.
We review accidents and injuries with clients to determine the best course of action and whether there is a valid personal injury claim.
