Felonies Aggressive Advocacy for Your Defense Needs

Felony Defense Attorney in Melbourne, FL

Aggressive Criminal Defender, Serving All of Brevard County

In Florida, as in other states, crimes are categorized into misdemeanors and felonies, with felonies being the most serious. Felonies are criminal offenses that often show aggression or violence towards human life and property. Conversely, they can also be nonviolent, as in the case of financially defrauding large groups of people. These are crimes that lead to more than a year in a state or federal prison along with heavy fines, probation, and other court sanctions specific to the offense.

Being charged with a felony in Florida calls for a capable criminal defense attorney with a proven record of results. Because of the high stakes involved in a felony charge, you should not trust your freedom and future to an untested, hesitant, or inexperienced lawyer.

At Law Offices of Laura D. Siemers, we have focused our practice solely on criminal defense for more than 20 years. That experience includes thousands of hours in court before judges and juries involving even the most complex of felony cases.

Charged with a felony? Contact Law Offices of Laura D. Siemers at (321) 218-5512 to discuss your case in a complimentary initial interview with our Melbourne felony defense lawyer.

Examples of Felonies in the State of Florida

Examples of felonies under Florida law include but are not limited to:

Penalties in Felony Convictions

Florida felonies are classified by degrees with capital felonies being the most severe, carrying penalties of life in prison without parole or the death penalty. Life felonies are punished by life in prison and fines of up to $15,000. First-degree felonies carry a prison sentence of up to 30 years with fines of up to $10,000. Second-degree felonies are punishable by up to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. Third-degree felonies carry penalties of up to five years in prison and fines of up to $5,000.

Along with the above criminal penalties, as a convicted felon, your criminal record will be accessible on a routine background check. This can create future harm to your eligibility for employment, housing, professional licenses, and more.
