Decades of Experience Handling Florida
Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims
The Pasco County Criminal Defense Division of the Law Firm of Whittel & Melton, LLC has over 50 years of collective experience defending the rights of those charged with all type of criminal offenses in Florida. The Pasco County Criminal Defense attorneys of Whittel & Melton are experienced in all Courts, whether they are Misdemeanor, Felony or Juvenile.
Our criminal defense practice includes representation of juvenile, misdemeanor and felony matters, in all State Courts. Pasco County is a unique jurisdiction in that criminal law matters are resolved in two separate courthouses in New Port Richey and Dade City.
Our Pasco County Criminal Defense Lawyers understand that some cases involve awful fact patterns, but the individual has acted out of character and needs to find a resolution that will not become life defining. Other cases involve less negotiating with a prosecutor, and instead involve a very hard sharp look towards the law with a mind towards preparing and executing proper Motions to Dismiss or Motions to Suppress Evidence and effectively arguing before a Judge. To that end, our office in certain cases will conduct our own pre arrest investigation to counter or explain an ongoing police investigation. An effective Pasco County Criminal Defense will always involve close inspection of and proper demanding of discovery or State evidence throughout the case. Of course, our Pasco County Criminal lawyers keep an eye towards trial, so that all cases are ready for trial.
