New Port Richey, FL Criminal Defense Lawyers

Dade City, FL Criminal Defense Attorneys

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.
