Criminal Defense

In the criminal court world, things are not at all as they seem. I remember as a young assistant public defender, I thought the first time I had an innocent client, the system would jump in to help rectify the wrongful arrest. What I learned was to the contrary. The system fought me harder than ever. The criminal system operates much like human nature--it doesn't easily admit mistakes or acknowledge wrongdoing.

Over the years, that view has not changed. I have represented people who have been overcharged (that is charged with more than what they did), charged wrongly, and in other instances the police used what are called "cover charge" to arrest someone when they use excessive force or other misconduct.

In each instance, you need a vigorous defense. In the medical world, they describe what is known as the "golden minute." That is the critical time following injury that can determine the overall possibility for recovery. And so it is in criminal defense. When you have been arrested, you are in the golden minute.

Don't wait. Whether you have been arrested for a misdemeanor, felony, juvenile offense or Violation of Probation, I can help. Call today for a free consultation at 904-296-1050 or email our secretary, Lorrie

Payment plans are available.

FAQs

Should I file for bankruptcy?

The decision to file for bankruptcy is not one to be made lightly.  When it comes to bankruptcy there are many intricacies involved.  It is best to first meet with an attorney so that they can get an accurate idea of what your financial situation looks like and get professional advice so you know how to go forward.  

During our first meeting we will ask you questions about your income, assets and liabilities and explain your options under the many different forms of bankruptcy available to individuals (Chapters 7, 11, 12 and 13).  From there we will advise you as to which chapter appears best for you based on your goals, taking into consideration the fact bankruptcy is not only a financial decision, but an emotional one as well.

Once we’ve made an assessment and given you an idea of what to expect, it will be your choice as to which chapter you file (as long as you qualify).

Am I entitled to a child support modification?

A person is entitled to a support modification if they can show that there is a "Substantial Change in Material Circumstances".  The courts define this as either a 15% change in income or a change that would amount to a $50.00 change in support, whichever is greater. 

To figure out if a sufficient change has occurred for a motification, an attorney will need to recalculate the Child Support Guidelines based on the financial situations of both parites.  Typically, such a change occurs every 2-3 years.

For more information dial 904-296-1050 or email our secretary, Lorrie by clicking here.

 
What laws effect the relocation of a child when a time-sharing plan is in existence?

The Florida relocation statute requires that you give notice to the lesser time-sharing parent if you are moving 50 or more miles from that parent's home.  This is true even if you are not leaving the state.  The notice must be registered with return receipt requested.  The non-moving party has 30 days to respond. Thereafter, if not timely filed, the moving parent may not legally leave.

Note: This event triggers a substantial change in circumstances and time-sharing (custody) may be revisited.  It is important to consult counsel when you are considering a move.
