Donald P. Day defends clients who are charged with misdemeanor or felony crimes of violence in Naples, Fort Myers, and the surrounding towns and counties of Southwest Florida.
The range of penalties for violent crime can vary widely in Florida, based on the seriousness of the crime and your level of involvement in it. We may have to address the nature of the crime’s effect relative to your involvement in it, as well.
Many violent crimes carry long mandatory prison sentences. For example, the commission of a violent felony crime while carrying a firearm can result in a 10-20-Life mandatory prison sentence.
If you have been charged with any of these crimes in Naples, Fort Myers, or the surrounding towns and counties, please contact the office as soon as possible.
When you are arrested and charged with a crime, timing matters. The state attorney’s office is working diligently to prosecute you, so it makes sense to have someone on your side working just as hard.
It’s important to have someone analyzing evidence on your behalf and talking to witnesses as soon as possible.
Sometimes, early handling of a case gives us a perspective we may not be able to have later if evidence disappears or people begin to forget details of what they saw.
Many times criminal Domestic violence cases also have a concurrent Restraining Order Case. If you are served with a civil restraining order you must be prepared to go to a hearing within a very short period of time. These hearings can have an impact on child support, visitation, immigration consequences and can result in your inability to own a firearm forever. You must hire an attorney immediately upon service of a restraining order.
Additionally, we may be able to help with bond hearings for lesser crimes, so that you may continue to enjoy freedom while you await trial, a plea deal, or another resolution.
If you believe our firm can assist you with the criminal defense process, please call us today.
