Representing You

If you face criminal charges, you can be sure that the police and prosecutors will bring all their power to bear against you. That's why you want a strong felony defense lawyer to fight for your rights just as forcefully. At Fordham Law Firm, we represent people throughout Florida who've been accused of committing crimes by providing aggressive, results-oriented defense. We know the Florida criminal justice system, and we have both the background and skill to take on tough criminal defense cases. No matter what type of charge you face, you can count on us to press for the best possible result through tenacious, tireless advocacy.

At Fordham Law Firm, we oppose charges ranging from minor offenses to serious felonies. Felony convictions carry the most serious consequences — a person convicted of a felony is sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison and may be incarcerated for life. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, a misdemeanor conviction can send you to jail and leave you with a record that follows you for the rest of your life.

Through each step of your criminal defense case, we will strongly challenge the prosecution's efforts to prove theirs. You can count on us to do everything in my power to obtain the best possible result under the facts, whether that's a dismissal of the charges, exoneration at trial, or a reduced sentence through a plea agreement. Our law firm understands that witnesses can misremember events, crime scenes can be tampered with, and law enforcement can make mistakes. To build your defense, we will carefully examine all arrest records and other relevant documents for vulnerabilities. We may also personally speak with witnesses or examine the alleged crime scene. When the circumstances call for it, we bring in experts to challenge the prosecution's theories.
