DUI DEFENSE

A DUI case is one of the most complex types of criminal cases and it can change a person’s life.  If convicted, a DUI sentence carries not just the penalties ordered by the court, such as classes, probation, and community service, but also collateral penalties that come with the conviction, such as a much higher insurance.

It is important to let your DUI attorney know if there was something that prevented you from doing well on the FSEs, such as back problems, vision problems, any previous injuries, even if you did not tell the officer on the day of the arrest. Florida has very serious penalties for even first time DUI offenders.

We know that litigation is expensive, and especially for small business owners, sometimes it is not the solution they are looking for.  We help our clients negotiate the best possible contract, the best possible lease, and understand what they are getting themselves into.  We don’t let out clients to into a business deal blindfolded.

CONTRACTS / LEASES

We all come in contact with contracts on daily basis, whether it is a commercial lease, a purchase of a home or a vehicle, or perhaps you are clicking online that you “have read and agree to terms and conditions” of a particular agreement. All these are examples of contacts with different purposes.

DIVORCE

When a marriage is no longer working, one or both parties may choose to get divorced. In Florida, the divorce process is referred to as a Dissolution of Marriage. Unlike other states, Florida does not require proof of fault as a ground for filing for dissolution; a party only needs to show that the couple were married, at least one spouse resided in the State of Florida for a minimum of six months, and that the marriage is irretrievably broken.

CHILD CUSTODY

When parents of a minor child divorce, custody of that child will be at issue. Florida courts generally defer to shared parental responsibility, where both parents work together to make major decisions regarding the child’s life and well being. Examples of these decisions include education, medical care, religious exposure, and major discipline. It is extremely difficult to obtain sole parental responsibility, as you must prove that sharing parental responsibility will be detrimental to the child.
