Innovative Defense Strategies That Keep Your Best Interests In Mind
Violent crimes refer to any criminal offenses that result in bodily harm or death of the victim. From simple assaults to murder, Florida takes these crimes very seriously. The penalties for a violent crime conviction vary depending on the severity of the offense and your criminal history. A first-degree misdemeanor can lead to up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $1,000. In serious felony cases like first-degree murder, you may face life in prison or the death penalty.
We can defend you against a variety of violent crimes, including:
