Criminal Defense Cases

Being charged with any criminal offense is a serious matter, whether you are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor crime. Any conviction has the potential for jail or prison time, and may cause you and your loved ones hardships that may directly impact your life for a long time to come.

In addition to your freedom being at risk, a criminal conviction may affect your employment opportunities, your ability to work in certain professions, hinder your educational goals, your ability to provide for your family, or a whole host of other obstacles in achieving your life goals.

Being charged with committing a criminal offense does not mean a conviction is a foregone conclusion. You do have rights. The legal counsel you choose to represent and protect your legal rights may have a direct impact on your ability to obtain the best resolution possible regarding your criminal defense legal issues.

Depending on the specific felony or misdemeanor crime that an individual is tried for, a conviction may result in:

  • Significant fines;

  • A specified period of incarceration jail or prison;

  • Lengthy periods probation;

  • House arrest;

  • Suspension or revocation of your driving privileges;

  • Potential vehicle forfeiture;

  • Community service;

  • Potential forfeiture of property or assets;

  • Forfeiture of certain basic civil rights;

  • And other mandatory programs or classes ordered by the court that are to be paid for out of the guilty parties own pocket.

In the State of Florida there are three degrees of Criminals (in addition to life felonies and capital Criminals):

  • Third Degree Felony: punishable by up to a $5,000 fine, five (5) years prison and/or probation;

  • Second Degree Felony: punishable by up to a $10,000 fine, fifteen (15) years prison and/or probation;

  • First Degree Felony: punishable by up to $15,000 fine, thirty (30) years prison and/or probation.

In the State of Florida there are two degrees of misdemeanor crimes:

  • 2nd Degree Misdemeanor: punishable by up to a $500 fine, sixty (60) days jail and/or 6 months probation;

  • 1st Degree Misdemeanor: punishable by up to a $1000 fine, twelve (12) months jail and/or probation;

At Lapina Law, while representing your legal rights we will aggressively fight for your freedoms utilizing every legal resource available under the law in an effort to help you achieve the best possible resolution in the defense of felony and misdemeanor  criminal charges you may be facing.

If Lapina Law is hired to represent you in a felony or misdemeanor criminal defense case, we will review and analyze all the evidence against you, all witness statements, and ensure you are fully aware of what your rights are, your legal options, and defense strategies that may best serve your specific case. Our priorities, in order include to fight to have the charges against you dropped, seek to have the charges reduced, negotiate to have you receive probation instead of incarceration, or negotiate for a diversion program (when available) that will allow the charges to be expunged after the successful completion of the diversion program.
