No matter what kind of charges you’re facing, being accused of a crime is a terrifying experience for anyone. When your entire future is on the line, you can’t afford to cut corners on your legal defense.
As a veteran of the United States Navy, Attorney Maria Rogers is undaunted by tough challenges. She has earned a reputation for fighting tirelessly on behalf of her clients. Let her fight for you.
Florida Felony Defense
Attorney Rogers and the team at FLA Legal Professionals represent individuals who have been charged with felony offenses. Felonies are the most serious criminal charges a person can face, and they typically carry serious penalties that include fines, prison time, and a permanent criminal record.
In Florida, felonies are generally broken down into life felonies, followed by felonies of the first, second, and third degree. Under Florida law, first degree murder is the only crime that carries the death penalty as a maximum sentence.
Felony charges vary, but many felonies are violent crimes, such as assault, robbery, and crimes carried out with a weapon. Drug crimes are also commonly prosecuted as felonies.
If you are facing a felony, it’s important to know what you’re up against. Felony offenses are often subject to sentencing guidelines that impose minimum penalties upon conviction. In many cases, felony crimes carry a mandatory prison sentence. If convicted, you could spend years in prison.
We Give You a Fighting Chance
Many defense lawyers make a name for themselves by negotiating plea bargains with prosecutors. On the surface, this may seem like a good option. The client gets a reduced charge or sentence by agreeing to a specific penalty. The problem with this approach is that it’s not appropriate for every client. In some cases, the client deserves a trial. Prosecutors know which lawyers avoid trials at all costs. You don’t want that kind of lawyer working for you.
Defense for State Crimes
Just because state crimes generally carry less severe penalties compared to felonies doesn’t mean they are any less serious. Any criminal conviction can remain on your record, preventing you from getting a job, going to school, or even renting an apartment. You could face fines, probation, the loss of your driver’s license, or time in jail. If you’re convicted of a sex-related offense, you could also be required to register as a sex offender for life.
FLA Legal Professionals defends individuals against all types of state crimes, including:
- Traffic violations
- Fraud and white collar crimes
- Theft and property crimes
- Juvenile offenses
- Drug crimes
