Respected Florida Criminal Attorney Dedicated to Standing Up for the Rights of Clients Charged with Serious Crimes

As the largest city in Hillsborough County, it’s no surprise that more people are arrested in Tampa than in any other city in Hillsborough County. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, there are more than 32,000 people arrested in Hillsborough County each year. Most of these arrests occurred in Tampa and involved just a handful of crimes, such as DUIs, assault, theft, and drug crimes.

Facing criminal charges in Tampa means your future is on the line. Therefore, you need an experienced Tampa criminal defense attorney who can effectively protect your interests at every stage of the process. At the Mayberry Law Firm, our defense attorney has more than two decades of experience defending the rights of clients charged with serious misdemeanor and felony offenses and knows what it takes to secure the outcome you’re looking for.

Types of Tampa Criminal Cases We Handle

At the Mayberry Law Firm, we believe that everyone deserves a robust defense, regardless of what crimes they face or what their record looks like. We take immense pride in creating strong defenses for clients charged with a wide range of criminal offenses, including but not limited to the following:

DUI Defense

In Tampa, being charged with a DUI offense means you’ll need an attorney with specific experience handling these cases. At the Mayberry Law Firm, we are skilled at dissecting arrest procedures and contesting the presented evidence. Your defense will focus on the validity of the stop and accuracy of sobriety testing to aim for reduced or dropped charges, safeguarding your license and freedom.

Drug Charges

Defending against drug charges typically involves challenging the evidence the prosecution plans to use against you. We do this by filing motions to suppress evidence illegally obtained as a result of unlawful searches and seizures. We also employ other drug crime defenses, where appropriate, such as arguing against constructive possession or challenging the government’s evidence you intended to distribute the drugs.

Assault and Battery

Accusations of assault and battery in Tampa require a diligent criminal defense lawyer to analyze incident specifics and witness reliability, alongside exploring self-defense claims, to strategize for charge reduction or acquittal.

Theft and Burglary

Handling theft or burglary charges in Tampa can significantly impact your life. Your attorney will meticulously evaluate the case’s details, negotiating or advocating in court to achieve the most favorable outcome, focusing on preserving your future.

Domestic Violence

In Tampa, domestic violence charges require a nuanced defense that thoroughly examines the evidence and allegations to counter the prosecution’s case, aiming to minimize the charges’ personal and legal impacts these cases often raise.

Sex Crimes

Facing sex crime allegations in Tampa involves serious reputational and legal consequences. Our Tampa sex crimes lawyer regularly represents clients charged with rape and other offenses, critically assessing the evidence against you, including the credibility of the alleged victim. Our goal is to protect your freedom and keep your name off the sex offender list whenever possible.

Child Pornography Offenses

Being charged with child pornography offenses in Tampa is extremely serious, with strict penalties for possession, distribution, or manufacture of unlawful material. At the Mayberry Law Firm, we create strong defenses based on the specific facts of your case, involving a thorough review of evidence collection and digital forensics to formulate a strategy that challenges the prosecution and mitigates potential penalties.
