St. Petersburg, Fl Criminal Attorneys

St. Petersburg is located in Pinellas County, comprising nearly the entire southern portion of the county.  The population of St. Petersburg is approximately 244,769, making it the fourth largest city in Florida in terms of population and the largest city in Pinellas County.  Given its size and the fact that it comprises the southern portion of the county, St. Petersburg houses a civil courthouse located at 545 1st Avenue North and a traffic annex located at 1800 66th Street North.  St. Petersburg is known for its beautiful beaches and is renowned as a popular vacation destination.  As such, many spring breakers find themselves in trouble while they’re here.  Often a St. Petersburg criminal lawyer can handle their criminal issue and help them avoid having to make another appearance in Pinellas County after they’ve gone home.

How can We Help in Your Criminal Case?

We’re dedicated to you and to a cause. Frankly, we like to stand up for the little guy and this is the perfect business for us to do so. We’ve represented the fine citizens of St. Petersburg for a long time and have had a lot of success doing so. We don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. But really, why should you choose us? Glad you asked.

  1. 1) The system is complicated and courtrooms are cavernous, frightening places for many of those unfamiliar with them. Let us be your lighthouse to guide you through these turbulent waters. We don’t judge and we won’t talk to you like you’re below us. In fact, when we hear other lawyers do that to their clients it makes us mad. We’ll treat you like you should be treated all the while working our hardest to get you the result that’s best.
  2. 2) Our fee is our fee. Nothing more nothing less.
  3. 3) We’re in court so often that we know the players in the game. Having familiarity with the spokes in the wheel never hurts when you need a Prosecutor to trust your representations to them in order to facilitate the best possible result in a case.
  4. 4) We try cases. This is important because we also win cases and acquittals are what you want in this business. The fact that we try cases is known and that’s leverage to get better deals for our clients that don’t want to go to trial.
  5. 5) We shoot straight. You need to know what you’re up against, good, bad, or ugly.
  6. 6) You can get in touch with us. Imagine that! An attorney that’s accessible.
  7. 7) We care about you and we care about your case. We may occasionally have a client that even we think is a jerk. However, he’s our jerk and we’ll do everything we can to protect him or her. Bottom line, we work as hard as we can for our clients regardless of charge or who they are.
