DUI Charges

DUI charges, or driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs, have become increasingly common in Florida and across the country in recent years. Today, one in every 135 people will be arrested for driving under the influence each year. Being arrested for DUI in Gainesville can be confusing, frightening, and intimidating. Fortunately, however, there is legal help available to ensure your DUI charge is aggressively defended against.

If you or a loved one has been arrested for DUI, it is imperative that you contact an experienced DUI defense attorney as soon as possible. DUI convictions can result in astronomical fines, days, months or even years in jail, loss of your driver’s license, and a criminal record. There are several effective ways of challenging your charge, including challenges to the stop; the field sobriety test; and seeking to suppress any statements.

White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes are some of the most complex charges in the criminal law practice area. These crimes have severe consequences and require defense by an attorney who is well-versed in this special field of law. If you have been charged with fraud, embezzlement or another type of white collar crime, contact our criminal defense attorneys.

Weapons Charges

Firearm and weapons offenses have severe consequences for individuals who are convicted of these crimes. Oftentimes those prosecuted with an illegal firearm and/or weapons possession charge don't even realize they broke the law during the event. The definition of a “weapon” in Florida can be interpreted in a number of ways and, if convicted of these charges, the repercussions can be long-term. Contact us to defend your weapons charge case today.
