We Strive to Lessen Penalties and Reduce Charges
While developing your defense strategy, we show you exactly what punishment you face based on the substance involved, the quantity involved, and your prior record. Because Florida drug crime penalties are generally based on the State sentencing guidelines, we take your presumptive sentence on the charges as actually filed as a starting point, and go to work toward the best resolution possible. If we can convince the prosecutor to reduce the charges, or if we can get the judge to disregard any prior conviction, the difference in your exposure to criminal penalties will be significant.
In some cases, we can achieve a dismissal of all charges based on problems with the arrest, the execution of a search warrant, the administration of a highway checkpoint, or other defects that undermine your constitutional rights or the integrity of the criminal justice system. In other cases, we can explore the possibility of diverting your case into Drug Court or another pretrial intervention that can result in the eventual dismissal of your case.
Whether you are charged with prescription fraud or manufacturing methamphetamine, our firm can help you avoid the worst consequences of conviction, and can take your case to trial if necessary.
