Your concerns, questions, and fears are important to me. I do my best to prepare you for all eventualities. The only thing worse than going through the criminal justice system is going through it unprepared and alone.

  • Marijuana Possession & Paraphernalia

    Mary Jane, Marijuana, pot, weed, cannabis, chronic, krypy, etc., is unlawful in Florida state. For the moment, at least! The “It’s only one joint” thinking process will likely result in a year in jail, a $1,000 fine on top of a compulsory driving license revocation.

    Having more than 20 grams is significantly more severe!

    I have achieved a notable reputation as an effective Wellington Criminal Lawyer defending all types of illegal drug possession criminal charges over the years – especially marijuana possession. Chances are I will get your charges dismissed, evade conviction completely, and keep your driving license. What I can manage for you depends on your specific details. So, phone me, and we’ll discuss your options…

  • Violent Crimes

    Numerous charges within Florida fall into this specific classification. Violent crimes consist of, but aren’t restricted to, murder, kidnapping, rape or sexual battery, home invasion, robbery, carjacking, aggravated assault, aggravated battery, along with burglary. Almost all have compulsory jail sentences, which prosecuting lawyers will make sure it is their top priority to acquire.

    Whenever a gun is employed over the course of committing the crime, the 10-20-life punishment code is vigorously enforced.

    You must have an ambitious Wellington Criminal Attorney proficient in this area of law. I have effectively defended clients in all of the case types mentioned above – and much more. Call, we’ll go over just what took place, and then we will have a discussion about your future.

  • Burglary (Breaking & Entering)

    Burglary (Breaking & Entering, B&E) takes place when someone enters the house or property of another with the intent actually to commit a criminal offense. From a technical perspective, a burglary offense doesn’t require proof of breaking in or necessitate evidence that a criminal offense occurred while within.

    Burglary just simply requires evidence that when the home or property has been entered, you had the required intent to commit a crime.

    Considering the fact that evidence of the burglary depends upon your intent at the point of access, there are many defenses. Who will tell you what your actual intent was, honestly? Phone my office, and we can have a discussion about these defenses and how we might be able to apply them to your situation.

  • Felony Drug Possession

    The most commonly seen reason behind arrest in the United States is drug possession. Whether or not it’s cocaine, illicitly acquired medications (Xanax, Percocet, Oxycontin, Lortab, Etc.), crack, heroin, PCP, LSD, or peyote, possession of any kind of illicit drug, aside from small amounts of weed, will be a felony charge in Florida. Punitive measures can entail imprisonment and/or probation, and also, in Florida, any kind of drug possession conviction results in a required license suspension.

    However, just because you were near drugs during your arrest does not necessarily prove you are guilty. Call my law firm. I will review your criminal offense. I will review how the interaction with authorities started off. I will see whether your Fourth Amendment civil rights have been disregarded.

    I will deal with the problem for you. I will help!

  • Probation Violation

    When on probation, relatively simple ordinary activities might put you in danger of violating your probation and getting you sent directly to jail. I take great pride in defending clients in all probation issues, including:

    • Violation Defense
    • Motions to Modify Probation
    • Motions to Terminate Probation
    • Speaking with Officers
    • Explanation/Interpretation of Probation Conditions

    The provisions in your probation may be unclear and even contradictory at times. Lots of violations have been because of innocent misconceptions! You should come in for a step-by-step review of your “probation papers” before making a simple misstep that could violate your probation’s stipulations. I will walk you through the main points.

    However, if you’ve already violated your terms due to some misunderstanding, or something else, contact me as soon as possible. I have sorted out countless probation violation offenses through the years. Allow me to be of assistance.

  • Expungements

    Your case has been dismissed. All the charges are now dropped. All the same, at this point, you still need to clear your arrest record of the charges filed against you. Background checks will still display those violations. Dismissed charges can keep you from locating a decent job, prevent you from getting a promotion, and/or hold you back from realizing other personal ambitions.

    Thankfully, Florida’s statutes allow for a person to expunge an entire police arrest/criminal case. Subject to various provisions, foremost of which is you have never previously been convicted of any kind of criminal activity. This means many different criminal charges, from one court case, such as a felony down filed to a simple misdemeanor, can be fully wiped from your record forever.

    I can help you thoroughly clean your criminal record. I will help place an offense behind you from expunging the criminal offense. Contact me to go over how I will help you put the past behind you so you can continue your life.


  • DUIs & Traffic Tickets

    Our capacity to make mistakes is, to a certain extent, part of what makes us human. I see that as being an undeniable fact. This is the reason I believe a number of traffic-connected penalties are unjust. I have greatly succeeded in reducing charges and, in many cases, wholly dropped.
