Criminal Defense

Criminal Law defines conduct prohibited by the State, Federal & Local agencies because it threatens and harms public safety and welfare. It also establishes the punishment to be imposed for violating these laws.

Driving Under the Influence

Under Florida law, Driving Under the Influence (DUI) of alcoholic beverages, chemical substances, or controlled substances is one offense, proved by impairment of normal faculties or an unlawful blood alcohol or breath alcohol level of .08 or above.

Boating Under the Influence

It is unlawful for anyone to operate a vessel within Florida while under the influence of alcohol or drugs to the extent that his or her normal facilities are impaired or has a Breath or Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of .08 or above.


If convicted after a trial or if after pleading guilty after losing a dispositive motion you have an automatic right, within 30 days after being sentenced and the sentencing being filed with the Clerk of Courts, to appeal.

Traffic Violations

A criminal traffic violation is much more serious and results in the driver being charged with possible arrest for a misdemeanor or felony charge.
