Criminal law resources provided by a board certified criminal law expert
Being accused of a criminal offense in Florida is a serious matter and has the potential to result in serious legal consequences, including fines, probation, restitution, and even jail time. Furthermore, the penalties associated for people with multiple convictions escalate very quickly, sometimes involving significant prison sentences. As a result, it is extremely important that anyone accused of a criminal offense in Florida retain legal counsel as soon as possible. In addition to retaining legal counsel, people who are facing allegations of criminal misconduct can also learn as much as possible about the legal system as possible. The links below are intended to help laypeople learn about criminal law and also recognize the importance of retaining an experienced attorney to handle any criminal matter that they may face. In the vast majority of cases, the final outcome of a criminal case is much better for people who retain legal representation that those who choose to represent themselves.
