If you are charged with a violent crime it is very important that you hire a competent and experienced criminal defense attorney to handle your case. The State of Florida aggressively prosecutes those charged with violent crimes. Violent crimes include, but are not limited to: murder, manslaughter, attempted murder, aggravated battery, simple battery, domestic battery, aggravated assault, simple assault, carjacking, kidnapping, robbery, and armed robbery. Over the last decade we have defended hundreds of clients charged with crimes of violence throughout Jacksonville and North Florida.
Our firm maximizes defenses that may be available to you when charged with a violent crime. Common defenses include, but are not limited to: self-defense, coming to the defense of another, necessity, duress, and sometimes insanity. There are often legal defenses based on improper search and seizure issues. However, the facts of each individual case are unique and will ultimately play an important role in the scope and type of legal defense that we may be able to defend with in Court.
Moreover, many times the State of Florida may not have enough evidence to prosecute the crime under the law. In those cases, a motion to dismiss may be appropriate to make the case go away in its entirety. Of course, the facts of each case are different and no attorney, pursuant to Florida Bar Rules, can promise guaranteed results.
As stated previously, my firm has experience defending violent crime cases. We have defended cases in Duval, Clay, Nassau, Putnam, Alachua, Columbia and Baker Counties.
Our firm’s ability to recognize deficiencies in the State’s case and to take a case to trial, if needed, can result in: the charges being dismissed, much of the evidence being suppressed [thrown out], or a possible acquittal at trial. The facts of each case along with application of the relevant law are unique to each case and will govern the nature and scope of any legal strategy. The client, after full advisement, ultimately makes the choice regarding defense strategy, e.g. trial, motion defense, negotiated plea disposition, and alternative dispute resolution.
The firm represents and defends clients with violent crime charges ranging from simple battery to murder (non-capital murder cases only). Such charges include, but are not limited to:
