A criminal conviction in Florida could lead to an array of penalties that can negatively affect your life, future, and members of your family.
Depending on the nature of the crime, you could face: jail time, probation, community service, hefty fines, and other harsh penalties. In addition, your criminal record could make it difficult to find or maintain employment, a place to live, obtain credit, and other life necessities.
If you are accused or charged with committing a criminal act, don’t risk your future. Contact an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the law and will protect and defend your rights.
Our firm is committed to defending and protecting the rights of individuals accused or charged with misdemeanor or felony crimes. For years, we have helped countless clients obtain favorable outcomes. Our firm is experienced in criminal law and is familiar with the Florida legal system. We will take the time to investigate each case, review the charges and formulate a strategy to pursue the end results you need.
Our firm represents clients in a variety of federal criminal matters, and particularly in “white collar” cases involving alleged RICO, fraud, theft, tax, and securities law violations. The criminal practice of the firm also includes the representation of clients facing drug charges, both in federal and state court, as well as the defense of clients facing a wide range of felony and misdemeanor charges in the Circuit and County Courts of Florida.
We have a reputation for ethical and fair dealing with the federal and state prosecutors with whom we deal. We have an equally strong reputation for being extremely thorough and a formidable opponent in those cases that cannot be resolved without a trial.
Range of Cases
Charles M. Greene, P.A. represents clients who are suspected, accused, and charged with crimes in both State and Federal Courts.
While our background makes us eminently qualified to handle white collar, document intensive cases, we also represent many clients accused of major and minor drug offenses, theft, immigration violations, domestic violence, and many other different felonies and misdemeanors.
The infrastructure and technology that we have purchased and developed for our commercial litigation practice makes us well suited to handle document intensive criminal matters which most criminal defense lawyers avoid. Charles M. Greene, P.A. has handled many cases against federal agencies that involved thousands and sometimes hundreds of thousands of documents that had to be sorted, analyzed, indexed, and stored so that they could be used at trial and/or at other appropriate points in the litigation process. The key to a solid defense is often hidden in voluminous documents which must be mined for the nuggets they may contain. While it can be a grueling and tedious process, this sort of labor-intensive investigation is essential to a competent defense of cases involving alleged Ponzi schemes, tax fraud, securities or commodities violations, mortgage fraud, and the like.
White Collar Criminal Defense
The term “White collar” crimes generally refers to non-violent offenses involving money and/or financial transactions. Corporations, executives, and professionals are increasingly the target of aggressive criminal prosecution and regulatory enforcement of white collar criminal statutes. For persons who find themselves the subject or target of such efforts, we offer vast experience in avoiding and defending prosecution.
Personalized Representation & Counseling
We recognize that the prospect of criminal prosecution is extremely stressful and blurs one’s judgment and ability to think clearly. We are there to help counsel and guide you through the process. We will listen to you, try our best to understand and address your concerns, and educate you as to what has happened and what may happen as your case goes forward. Your worries become our concerns. Let us handle them for you. Do not make a bad situation worse.
Every Case is Unique
You are not just another number or statistic. Every criminal case is different and unique. The people and the circumstances always vary. At Charles M. Greene, P.A., we try to understand the “big picture,” how you may have arrived at this juncture in your life, and how you can best move forward.
Communication is Key
Listening is a big part of the communication process. We will listen to you, and you should listen to us. We will try our best to explain the charges that have been filed or that you may otherwise face, how they apply to the facts and circumstances at issue, and the most appropriate defense strategies. If you do not understand our advice or if you still have questions, tell us. We work for you.
