Types of Criminal Defense Cases We Handle at the Arwani Law Firm, PLLC
In Florida, criminal charges range from petty offenses to serious felonies, and all carry consequences, often more severe than you might think. Our criminal defense attorneys are prepared to handle criminal cases involving:
- DUI – Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs
- Assault & Battery
- Domestic Violence
- Drug Crimes
- Driving & Traffic Offenses
- Theft Crimes
- Weapons Offenses
- Violent Crimes
- Probation Violations
When you’re facing criminal charges, the prosecution must prove that you, in fact, committed the crime you have been charged with, and every crime has a certain number of components or “elements”—sometimes three or four elements—which must be proven. Unless the prosecution can prove your actions rose to the level of each element, you should not be found guilty of the crime in question. However, this is not how criminal proceedings always work, especially if you do not have a knowledgeable defense attorney standing up for your rights and telling your side of the story.
Our criminal defense attorneys are ready and able to investigate the charges against you and break down the elements of your alleged crime. By doing so, we’ll determine if there is sufficient proof to have you convicted. For example, if you were arrested for drinking and driving after testing above the legal limit in Florida (.08 BAC), it’s possible there were errors made during the testing process that would invalidate the test results. Almost every criminal case has some margin of discrepancy, and a good criminal defense lawyer will identify weak links in the prosecution’s case to have charges reduced or dropped entirely.
