Orlando Criminal Defense Attorney

Being accused of a crime, regardless of its severity, will leave you feeling angry and confused. The weight of government prosecution is not easy to bear, but with the right criminal defense attorney like Patrick Grozinger of Grozinger Law, P.A. on your side, you can rest assured that your reputation and future prospects will be fiercely defended.

It is important to remember that an arrest does not provide evidence of a crime. A skillful defense lawyer can oftentimes prove your innocence in a court of law. From the moment you select Grozinger Law, P.A. as your criminal defense firm, we will do everything in our power to protect your rights and provide skilled guidance in all legal matters.

As a highly respected member of Florida's legal community and a former prosecutor with the State Attorney's Office, Patrick Grozinger is equipped with the experience and knowledge required to deal with a multitude of criminal defense issues; his firm Grozinger Law, P.A. successfully defends clients in central Florida charged with offenses that fall into the following categories:

First Time Offenders

First time offenders are often the most disturbed by their arrests. The possibility of a tarnished reputation and negative personal and professional consequences can lead those accused to become unnecessarily anxious. A skilled defense attorney has extensive knowledge of the programs available for first time offenders, helping facilitate reduced sentencing or penalties. When your innocence is proven in court, and charges are dismissed, Florida law permits your records to be sealed and expunged.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

Driving while intoxicated with alcohol or drugs (both prescription and illegal) is considered to be a DUI offense. Refusal to provide a sample or positive breath/blood test results do not guarantee a criminal conviction; a defense lawyer will help establish and defend the true facts of your case.

Traffic Offenses

Traffic violations are usually issued as a result of speeding, missing red lights, driving with reckless abandon, incorrectly using lanes or driving with an expired or revoked license. A skilled defense lawyer will challenge the facts relating to your case, such as speed camera evidence, and can arrange pleas bargains for reduced sentencing if required.

Drug Crimes

Crimes concerning controlled substances are taken very seriously by criminal courts, with the government pushing for more convictions and harsher sentencing. Drug crimes cover illegal narcotic substances, like cocaine and heroin, and the illegal use or dealing of prescription drugs. If you have been accused of possessing, using or dealing a restricted substance, hire an attorney with experience and a proven successful track record as soon as possible.

Marijuana Charges

Minor marijuana (also known as cannabis) possession is considered to be a misdemeanor according to Florida state law and can lead to an Adjudication of Guilt (a legal admission of culpability) and a 2-year driving ban. Possession or sale of larger quantities is classified as a felony and can lead to large fines and longer periods of imprisonment. An experienced drug defense lawyer can help you avoid an adjudication and, in some cases, have charges dropped.

Juvenile Offenses

Legal violations enacted by minors (those aged under 18) are classified as juvenile offenses. These offenses are only considered to be illegal when undertaken by minors; for example, truancy and underage possession and consumption of alcohol are common juvenile offenses. Skillful representation of minor defendants is essential to ensure a clean record and positive future for those accused of juvenile offenses.

Domestic Violence

Orlando criminal defense lawyer, Grozinger Law, P.A., can represent those accused of domestic violence. According to Florida law, domestic violence covers a range of aggressive acts, both physical and psychological, carried out on a household member. Both male and female clients arrested for domestic violence offenses require a skilled legal defense lawyer to dismiss or resolve all charges.

Theft Charges

Theft offenses have potentially serious consequences, including imprisonment, a permanent criminal record and restitution. A seasoned Orlando defense attorney will protect your rights and ensure your future is safe from harsh or wrongful convictions. Theft can cover a range of charges, including embezzlement, burglary and shoplifting.

Sealing and Expungement of Records

In the state of Florida, the sealing and expungement of records is only permitted in cases where charges are dropped. An Orlando attorney can help you get your charges dropped and subsequently have the case expunged from your record, leaving you with a clean criminal record and no requirement to disclose the initial arrest.

Violations of Probation

Violating the terms of a parole or probation agreement can lead to it being revoked, often resulting in a return to imprisonment, rehabilitation, community service and/or an additional fine. Proving innocence in probation violation cases involves finding evidence that terms were adhered to or demonstrating insufficient evidence to the contrary.

White Collar Crime

Crimes labeled as 'white collar' fall into several categories, but mainly stem from non-violent business pursuits including but not limited to fraud, copyright infringement, insider trading, forgery, bribery and money laundering. White collar legal cases can be small, focusing on just one individual, or gigantic, when a major corporation is under prosecution. Whichever category you fall into, selecting the right legal council is essential when fighting the charges levied against you.

Federal Offenses

Federal offenses violate federal laws and are generally very serious in nature, covering everything from drug trafficking to terrorism offenses.

Weapons and Firearm Offenses

Grozinger Law, P.A. will work hard to defend those accused of weapons offenses in Florida to determine that facts of your case and evidence that pertains to your motives for firearm possession or usage. In some cases it is possible to provide acquittal or dismiss charges before a case goes to trial, or plead for a lesser sentence.

Assault/Battery & Violent Crimes

Violent crimes cover a huge section of the law, from homicide to child abuse. Serious rights and implications face the accused, and a rigorous defense lawyer will be required to provide professional counsel during all aspects of the legal process, including the time leading up to the trial.

Sex Crimes

Being accused of a sex crime carries a great stigma and can quickly destroy your reputation. An experienced and thorough criminal lawyer can help defend those facing sexual offense charges and, where applicable, prove innocence in cases of false accusal.

Bar Defense

Florida Bar grievance complaints arise when a practicing attorney is accused of taking unethical action in a state court. The Florida Bar Lawyer Regulation Division received around 10,000 complaints every single year, so these cases are by no means uncommon and can beset even the most rigorous legal professionals. Self-representation is not recommended and more cases are won by hiring an experienced Floridian lawyer to defend your position from an objective standpoint.

Out of State Defendants/Tourist Arrests

Being arrested for any crime while visiting a different state can be very unsettling. Luckily, experience of Grozinger Law, P.A. can provide legal counsel to visitors and tourists from any state or country outside the US.

Even before your trial begins, Grozinger Law, P.A. will defend your rights and ensure that the legal formalities are carried out justly and with the minimum amount of inconvenience to your life. Act quickly and secure a defense attorney as soon as possible; having the right defense team behind you places you in the best possible position to fight and protect your reputation and your future.
