Local Litigator, Staunch Defender

In Florida, a violent crime is classified as an act that involves either actual harm or threat of bodily harm to another person. Even if the victim was not injured, if there was a probability that a threat could result in physical harm, you may still be charged with a violent crime. If you have been accused of committing a violent crime, you need to act quickly. Whether you are facing a misdemeanor or a felony, any violent charge on your criminal record could negatively impact your reputation and ability to secure gainful employment.

Under Florida's 10-20-Life law, mandatory minimum sentences will be imposed for violent felonies that involved firearms.
