Ask for An Attorney

Many people that are questioned or charged with a crime hesitate to ask for an attorney during the investigation phase and even after they are arrested. This often happens because they know they are innocent, and they fear that asking for an attorney makes them appear guilty. Unfortunately, the reality is that the police and prosecutors will employ every tactic and do everything they can to prove their crime theories. Anything you say can and will be used against you, too. More people dig themselves into deep holes by trying to cooperate with police without a criminal defense attorney present.

Jacksonville Beach Misdemeanors

We represent clients accused of misdemeanors, such as vandalism, domestic violence, shoplifting, trespassing, criminal mischief and other small crimes. While these types of crimes are generally classified as misdemeanors, they can still have devastating consequences on your life, including your career. Coplan-Gardner & Gardner can help assess the evidence against you to help you gain a more favorable outcome for your case.

Florida Felonies

Not all criminal defense firms are created equal, and Coplan-Gardner & Gardner has superior experience handling criminal felonies. People convicted of felonies often have difficulty finding employment, renting a home or even getting approved for a mortgage. Additionally, many professions that have legal licences will not accept anyone convicted of a felony.

If you have been charged with a felony, it’s imperative that you hire a qualified defense attorney immediately to help investigate your case and represent you in court. Remember, you aren’t merely fighting for the present, but for your future.
