You defended yourself.
Now let us defend you.
The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution States “a well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Over the years, there has been a great deal of debate regarding what this part of the Constitution means and what it should allow in modern times. No matter what one’s position is, the law of the land we share enables you to purchase, possess, and use many types of firearms. This is a part of why Florida has a Stand Your Ground law.
Despite following Florida’s laws on gun possession, ownership, and use, many people find themselves unjustly charged with crimes ranging from illegal concealed carry to – in the worst-case scenario – premeditated murder.
If you carry a firearm in Florida, it is extremely important that you do your own research as to when you can legally use a firearm to defend yourself or others. It is equally important that you properly train yourself with regard to firearm safety and use.
However, if you have been arrested after an incident involving a firearm, it is of the utmost importance that you hire an attorney who is an expert on Florida’s laws regarding firearms, self-defense, and specifically Florida’s “Stand Your Ground Law.”
What kind of attorney do you need when you are arrested for a stand your ground or a firearm-related offense?
Few attorneys know how to properly handle a self-defense case. Fewer attorneys know how to properly litigate Florida’s Stand Your Ground law. Even among those, fewer have the proper amount of knowledge about firearms to adequately defend you and litigate your case.
Unfortunately, the truth is that many attorneys who do not have the knowledge and experience in these areas will simply tell you they do, take whatever money you can provide, and attempt to talk you into accepting a plea bargain as soon as possible.
Who we are and how we can help with Stand Your Ground related cases.
Our attorneys have practiced in state and federal court throughout the southeastern United States – Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas. We practice criminal law, but we also handle cases ranging from complex breach of contract lawsuits with millions of dollars in dispute to civil litigation and negligent security cases involving serious bodily injuries and wrongful death. The cases we handle have one common theme – the cases are extremely important to my clients because the stakes are so high.
If your case involves a firearm, in addition to needing a criminal defense attorney, you need an attorney who knows about firearms. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of advanced evidentiary issues, such as gunshot residue, firearm function, and crime scene reconstruction.
Our attorneys have litigated Florida’s Stand Your Ground law under a number of different circumstances, which has resulted in cases being dismissed due to our investigations and motions, court dismissals of cases under Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, and juries acquitting our clients after fiercely contested trials.
How to get in contact with my firm for your initial consultation:
Please contact us today by call or email. When you call, you will speak to one of our attorney’s team members, who will briefly interview you about the facts of your case. That team member will provide that information to one of our attorneys the same day. Upon reviewing your case, one of our attorneys will reach out to you directly so that we can have a one-on-one conversation about your case, about what happened, and where we can go from here. It’s important that you know that everything you say to an attorney or team member at our firm is kept 100% confidential, in accordance with the strict rules of the Florida Bar.
This will likely be the most important legal matter that you deal with in your life. The way we practice law is to treat it like the most important legal matter in our lives as well. We greatly look forward to helping you.
