There is very little tolerance if you are convicted of a violent crime offense. Being charged with assault, domestic violence or attempted murder means that your livelihood and freedom are instantly at risk.  If convicted of a violent crime, you run the risk of facing 10 to 20 years for a first offense, and if you are charged with a second offense or higher, you might end up with a longer sentence for being a repeat offender.


We defend people who have been charged with the following:

  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Domestic Violence
  • Attempted Murder

Being charged with a violent crime can be scary, but it is important for you to remain calm. In my opinion, one of the worst things you can do is attempt to navigate the process alone, or with an inexperienced attorney. Florida Statute 775.084 outlines the penalties in place for offenders of violent crimes; if you’ve read through this chapter, you know that a violent crime case needs to be handled with the utmost diligence.

If you have been charged with a violent crime offense, it is important to have a vigorous defense in place and a diligent attorney in your corner.
