• Plea Bargaining

    Plea bargaining is never a first option but, it is an option. We can help during criminal defense negotiations on your behalf. Our goal is to avoid a criminal conviction that can cause you to lose your civil rights. With no conviction you can have your records sealed or expunged. as a result employers or friends may not be able to find out about your criminal arrest charges.

  • Pre Trial Diversion

    Pre-Trial Intervention and Pre Trial Diversion Programs can be used for negotiation in many misdemeanor and simple felony cases. You may be asked to perform community service hours, drug testing, an anger management class or a values class. When you complete the program successfully, the State of Florida will dismiss all the charges against you. At that point, we can expunge your record, so no one will know you were arrested.
