If you are charged with a crime in the Tampa Bay area, you must have the advice and services of the right Tampa criminal defense attorney. Criminal convictions are penalized with stiff fines, probation, a lasting criminal record, and in some cases, jail or prison. Your freedom, your family, and your future may be at risk, but the right defense attorney will protect your rights and fight hard for the truth, justice, and freedom you need.
In the Tampa Bay area, attorney Pat Courtney resolves criminal charges against his clients aggressively and completely. He will work with you personally through every step of the legal process. Pat Courtney believes that you are innocent until and unless every element of the charge against you can be proven in a court of law. If you are arrested and accused of a crime, don’t panic. Instead, call defense attorney Pat Courtney – at once.
WHAT CAN THE RIGHT CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY DO FOR YOU?
The right attorney should offer straightforward legal advice, listen to you, and guide you from start to finish through the criminal justice process. Patrick Courtney will explain exactly how the law applies to your case, what may happen to you, and how you can help in your own defense. He will develop an effective, proactive defense strategy on your behalf.
In most criminal cases, the first step is to try having the case dismissed. If your case can’t be dismissed, it may go to trial, where Mr. Courtney will cast doubt on the evidence against you to help return a not guilty verdict; we’ll bring in skilled investigators and expert witnesses to help. If the state’s evidence is overwhelming and a conviction is unavoidable, Mr. Courtney will negotiate for an acceptable plea bargain or alternative sentencing.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU’RE ARRESTED FOR DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE?
You’ll have a ten-day window to take action, or your driver’s license will be automatically suspended. You’ll need to reach Pat Courtney at once if you hope to keep your license. What are the penalties for a DUI or BUI conviction? The penalties for a first offense can include six months in jail, a $1,000 fine, and a one-year driver’s license suspension.
There are additional penalties for “aggravated” circumstances in a DUI case as well and every Florida driver should know what they are. If your blood alcohol content (“BAC”) level measures at or above 0.15 percent when you are arrested, you may face a mandatory doubling of fines; court-ordered installation of an ignition interlock device in your vehicle; and additional jail time. However, attorney Pat Courtney can ensure that an aggressive, effective defense is offered on your behalf.
