Miami Felony Crime Lawyer

Attorney reading room

A criminal attorney at the Miami and Fort Lauderdale Law Firm of Gilbert and Smallman will defend your Felony offense in the state court of Florida. A Felony is a criminal offense that carries a maximum penalty of up life in prison, up to a $100,000.00 fines for certain offenses, or sometimes a period of probation or community control (house arrest). Some Felonies include Burglary, Arson, Rape, Robbery, Kidnapping, Drug Dealing and Possession, Aggravated Assault and Battery, Sex Offenses and Homicide. We have successfully defended all types of Felony offenses by fighting cases at trial or having dismissals granted pre-trial if possible. Contact a criminal attorney at Gilbert and Smallman today so we can fight your felony offense.

Did you know that your prior offense can be used against in you in Felony court in the State of Florida? That’s right, every prior offense you have ever had in the United States of America is given a point value by the Florida Sentencing Guidelines. Those prior offense points, coupled with the points given to your current Felony add up to a number. If that number is greater than 44 sentencing points you will score mandatory for Florida State Prison, and the judge will have no choice but to sentence you to prison. That is, unless you have a criminal attorney that is experienced at getting the State Attorney to drop or reduce charges, or who knows how to successfully make an argument to the judge as to why they legally should not send you to prison. This is otherwise known as a Downward Departure from the sentencing guidelines, or an Alternative Sentence in the case of drug offenses. Each attorney at Gilbert and Smallman has successfully argued for downward departures and alternative sentences, and have the experience to do the same for you. If you or a loved one has a checkered past, contact a criminal attorney now to handle your Felony offense. The rest of your life could depend on it.
