Compassionate Support & Aggressive Representation

The criminal justice system is often intimidating for defendants. However, a lawyer with experience and integrity can help you fight the charges against you and maximize the opportunity for dismissal, acquittal, or reduced sentencing. The Morris Law Firm has experience handling thousands of cases of nearly all types of misdemeanor and felony charges in Florida state court, including but not limited to:

  • DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs)
  • Drug crimes (possession, sale, cultivation, and distribution)
  • Probation violations
  • Spring break arrests
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Weapons charges
  • Theft crimes
  • Juvenile offenses
  • White collar crimes
  • Medicaid fraud

In many cases, a criminal charge can take a severe toll on every aspect of a person’s life, from work to home to community. Because we understand that being charged with a crime is an overwhelming experience, we take our clients’ needs and concerns very seriously. When you hire the Morris Law Firm, our goal is to see you through this difficult time and ensure that the incident has as little impact as possible on your well being and future.  If you’re facing criminal charges, don’t hesitate to reach out to a trusted criminal defense attorney who can provide the guidance and support you need.

Protect Your Rights after an Arrest

During and after an arrest, you have rights that law enforcement officers must respect, including the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Exercise your rights, protect yourself, and do not talk to law enforcement if you are detained or arrested. Police must follow correct procedure when conducting searches and seizures of your property.

Experience Representing Juvenile Offenders

While punishments for juvenile offenses are generally less severe than for adult convictions, charges against a minor should never be taken lightly, as they can have a lasting impact on a child’s life, potentially making it difficult to gain college admittance, join the military, or obtain certain employment. If your teenaged son or daughter has been charged with a crime or delinquent conduct, ranging from underage drinking to drug possession, we can help you protect your child’s rights.
