Being charged with a Felony Crime is a serious event that requires serious representation. The fines, penalties, and impact that a felony conviction may have on a person’s life could be significant. A felony conviction may affect a person’s future goals and opportunities for employment, housing, education, financial assistance or loans, and a whole host of other everyday situations that we often take for granted.

If you are already licensed in a particular discipline or profession, a felony conviction could result in a “character and fitness” review, jeopardizing a convicted felon’s ability to continue to work in his/her chosen field of occupation.

In the State of Florida the degrees of felony crimes include:

  • 3rd degree felony: punishable by up to a $5,000 fine, five (5) years prison and/or probation

  • 1st degree felony: punishable by up to $15,000 fine, thirty (30) years prison and/or probation.

  • Aggravated Fleeing to Elude
  • Child Abuse
