Get A Former Homicide Unit Chief On Your Side

An attorney who understands forensic science can sometimes poke holes in the prosecution's case and create reasonable doubt. DNA evidence, forensic pathology, cellphone technology, gunshot residue, computer forensics, footprints, blood spatter and serology results can make or break your case.

One of the attorneys in our office is the former chief of the Orange County Homicide Unit. He has experience with all types of scientific evidence and has cross-examined some of the leading forensic scientists in their field. Prosecutors routinely rely on various experts hoping to sway the jury, but far too often, these experts are less than qualified, have used questionable methods or have reached faulty conclusions. Choose a defense lawyer who can tear apart such false evidence to protect your rights.

Understanding The 10-20-Life Law

Florida ranks among the most dangerous states in the nation. Our violent crime and murder rates frequently figure into the U.S.'s top 10. Because of this, judges do not treat violent crimes lightly. Instead, Florida has instituted the "10-20-Life" law, which sets out harsh minimum prison sentences for violent offenders:

  • A 10-year minimum sentence for producing a firearm during a criminal act
  • A 20-year minimum sentence for firing a gun during a criminal act
  • A 25-year-to-life sentence for shooting someone during a criminal act

The law establishes minimum sentences for a range of other acts as well. If you have been charged with a crime that falls under the 10-20-Life law, it is absolutely essential to work with a lawyer who can diligently defend you.
