Domestic Violence Attorney in St. Petersburg, Florida

If you are a man or a woman charged with domestic violence, we can help you navigate and avoid the many consequences related to such a charge including denial of bond, returning to your home, communicating with your spouse, and being denied future ownership of a firearm. We can file motions on your behalf to ensure a fair and speedy trial while investigating the specifics of your case to help you avoid a trial whenever possible.

There are many unique challenges involved with a Domestic Battery charge, many of which are related to your case being handled by a special domestic violence division operated by the State Attorney. We can make sure that you have every opportunity to aggressively fight the charges and minimize the outcome.
 
DUI Attorney in St. Petersburg, Florida

If you were arrested for Driving under the Influence (DUI), contact us immediately. We will discuss the case with you to find out what needs to be done to protect your rights. We will attend all scheduled court hearings and review your case for potential pre-trial motions. Furthermore, we will evaluate the potential for a reduction of the charge, engage in pre-trial negotiations with the state, and advise you whether a jury or bench trial would be the best course of action.

Having an experienced attorney early in your case is the best way to protect your privilege to drive and increases your chances of avoiding a conviction. Please remember, you only have 10 calendar days after your DUI arrest to file a demand for an Administrative Hearing with the DMV to protect your driver’s license. We will aggressively fight for you to keep your license. Whenever possible, we will attempt to help you obtain a 42-day driving permit to allow you to continue driving for work and hardship related activities. We are here to help you every step of the way.
 
Drug Charges Attorney in St. Petersburg, Florida

If you have been charged with any drug offense, it is important to know your rights. Your case can be won or lost by choosing the proper defense. Many drug charges allow for a number of different defenses that can be asserted by filing motions to suppress evidence or dismiss charges. Did the police have legal grounds or probable cause to search you? Were your rights violated in the execution of the search? Is there sufficient evidence to prosecute your case?
There is often a multitude of different tactics and defenses available to you. By contacting us and discussing the specifics of your case, you will have taken the first step towards an affirmative defense.
 
Asset Seizure / Forfeiture Attorney in St. Petersburg, Florida

We are very experienced in this particular area of law and after contacting us, we will immediately move to protect you, your rights, and your property. The adverse preliminary hearing is one of the fastest and most effective ways to fight for your property and assert any defenses that exist in the case. In many cases where the property has already been seized, it may be released without any payment to the State. The rules and laws governing asset forfeiture vary from city to city, county to county, and state to state. Understanding these differences can expedite the process and minimize the exorbitant cost that can accrue in such cases if your property is seized.

The remedy of asset forfeiture is becoming an increasing tool of law enforcement. In addition to incarceration, more and more States are seeking to confiscate the property of citizens. It is important to recognize that asset forfeiture by the State is possible EVEN IF the underlying conduct by the owner does NOT result in a criminal conviction. In order to protect your rights to the property you own, retain an experienced asset forfeiture attorney. As an Assistant Attorney General who exclusively practiced asset forfeiture matters, Mr. Herrmann is uniquely qualified to defend against such actions.


Theft Attorney in St. Petersburg, Florida

The law makes a distinction between Petit Theft (a misdemeanor) and Grand Theft (a felony). Pleading guilty to a theft charge can have consequences ranging from probation to prison. In addition to this, the judge may suspend your driver’s license. Aside from identifying the alleged “thief,” intent is often the most important element for the State to prove beyond a reasonable doubt in a theft. Where intent is an issue, it is important to have an experienced criminal attorney to demonstrate to the State that the accused did NOT have the intent to permanently deprive the “stolen” property from the owner.
Violation of Probation

If your term of probation is in violation status, hire an attorney who has prosecuted such cases and represented clients who were in violation. If your probation officer has informed you that you are about to be violated, it is a tremendous opportunity for you to hire an experienced violation of probation (VOP) attorney to resolve the violation with less adverse consequences than might occur by waiting to address the situation. The possible outcomes range greatly, from reinstatement to a prison sentence, depending upon facts including the reason for the violation, number of prior violations and severity of the violation. A true advocate in these circumstances is absolutely essential.


Weapon Charges Attorney in St. Petersburg, FL

Illegal possession of a weapon is a serious offense, but the use of a deadly weapon in the commission of the crime can turn a misdemeanor into a felony and can result in the court imposing extremely harsh penalties if you are convicted. Even brandishing a weapon during the commission of another crime, such as robbery or burglary, may result in the offender facing drastically enhanced penalties.

The use or presence of a firearm in the commission of a crime is extremely serious and may carry with it a charge as extreme as a first degree felony depending on the facts and circumstances alleged. In fact, certain weapons offenses may be punishable by a term of up to life in prison.
