If you have been charged with committing a crime, whether an infraction, misdemeanor or felony, do not talk to anyone until you have spoken to an attorney. This includes law enforcement, your family, your best friend or your cell mate. Anything you say can be used against you in any criminal proceeding including trial.
If you are convicted, the consequences can be life-changing whether you are facing a fine, probation or a long prison term. Just being charged is stressful. You may lose your job. Friends may shun you. If you are a parent in the process of divorce or already divorced, child visitation and custody may become issues.
The state is always committed to getting a conviction. To help with that goal, the prosecutor has essentially unlimited resources at hand and will not stop in its prosecution of you. You need the assistance of an experienced criminal defense attorney who will zealously defend you and protect all of your constitutional rights. That attorney is Florida Criminal Defense Lawyer, John C. Jordan. He has more than 30 years of experience defending people from criminal prosecution.
A Criminal Defense Lawyer in Florida Can Help
At the Law Office of John C. Jordan, we will listen to your side of the story with compassion and caring. We make no judgments. Whatever the charges are, we pull out all the stops to provide you the best possible defense.
We begin by carefully reviewing all the investigative reports. If possible, we interview witnesses. We may need to retain our own investigator. If any of your constitutional rights were violated, we will make a motion to have the case dismissed or evidence excluded. The relevant constitutional rights include:
- Your Fourth Amendment right to be free of warrant-less searches and seizures.
- Your Fifth Amendment right not to be a witness against yourself and to remain silent. All questioning by law enforcement must stop the moment you ask for an attorney to be present.
- Your Sixth Amendment right to a speedy trial and to confront witnesses against you.
You have these rights no matter what the charges are against you.
