Most of our clients — juveniles, college students, tourists and others — have never been arrested. They have no criminal record. Yet now they are facing serious charges that may affect their families, their ability to obtain an education, their freedoms and their futures. They are scared, worried about the charges becoming public and uncertain how to protect themselves against the overwhelming power of the criminal justice system.
Burglary is a crime of intent. It is also considered a felony in the Florida criminal justice system, far more serious than simply breaking and entering or simple theft. This means that your state of mind plays an important role in a criminal defense matter. We may ask questions as we pursue your defense such as:
- Did you know the building or the premises in question was private?
- Were you invited as a guest into the premises where you were arrested?
- Are there extenuating circumstances surrounding your arrest?
- Is there more to the arrest record than the police are including in the police report?
Robbery involves using force to take money or property from someone else. For the crime to be charged as robbery, force must be involved. Robbery, like burglary, is a felony that is subject to what is known as a gun penalty enhancement. This means that if you are convicted, you will be facing increased penalties. You need to have an aggressive robbery defense team on your side right out the gate.

In all cases, we will use our skills to fight for you at trial or to negotiate a reasonable resolution to your case. Among the cases that we handle are:
