Giving Honest Advice To Good People In And Around Punta Gorda

Most people do their best to be good, upstanding citizens and never expect to get arrested. Yet, a false accusation or a one-time error can lead to this outcome. If you find yourself in this situation, you can count on the attorneys at the Law Firm of Scott T. Moorey to defend you.

Since 1998, we have stood up for the good people of Punta Gorda and Charlotte County. When we work with you, we will be honest about the penalties you could face and the potential outcomes of your case. We will also support you at every turn and fight ferociously for your freedom.

We Serve People Charged With All Types Of Crimes

No matter what crime you’ve been charged with, we can help you out. We serve clients in the Punta Gorda area accused of the following offenses:

  • Domestic violence: We fight to protect people’s reputations when domestic violence allegations, whether legitimate or false, put them at risk of ruin.
  • Driving under the influence (DUI): A first-time – or subsequent – DUI conviction can carry stiff penalties that inconvenience individuals. We work hard to help our clients avoid the worst of these.
  • Drug crimes: We understand that Florida’s drug penalties are stiff, and we do everything in our power to ensure clients don’t face consequences disproportionate to their mistakes.
  • Expungement: Some people convicted of crimes may be able to have their criminal records sealed. We assist them with this process and set them on a path toward a better future.
  • Juvenile crimes: Kids make mistakes, and some of these have legal repercussions. We work with families to give their children a second chance.
  • Probation violations: Probation can have strict rules, and people can lose their freedom by breaking them. We stand up for clients accused of probation violations and strive to help them stay eligible for supervised release.
  • Sex crimes: The fallout from sex offenses is often severe. We aim to preserve the rights and reputations of the accused.
  • Traffic violations: Traffic offenses may seem minor, yet many are serious and even the smallest ones can add up. We are committed to protecting clients’ driving privileges and helping them avoid jail time.
  • Violent crimes: When people are accused of harming others, we stand with them.
  • White collar crimes: White collar crimes may not physically harm victims, yet they can cause untold financial damage. We build strong defenses for individuals charged with these offenses, including fraud, forgery and embezzlement.
