Being charged with a criminal offense is one of the most serious situations anyone can face. At the Law Office of Hernan Hernandez, P.A., we represent clients throughout all of South Florida who are facing criminal charges for such crimes as embezzlement, battery and conspiracy. We also assist with the sealing and expungement of criminal records. With almost 20 years of experience defending clients, we have established a reputation in the community for providing personalized attention and superior results.
In Florida, embezzlement can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the value or type of property stolen. You may be facing embezzlement charges if you have been accused of stealing money from an employer. These cases are often complicated, and finding the right representation is essential. We take the time to review all of the facts associated with your case so we can explain the charges and the most likely outcome to you in detail. We will also help you construct a solid defense plan for your situation.
Felony charges are the most serious recognized in South Florida, and crimes charged as felonies range from carrying a concealed weapon to murder. If you have been charged with a felony, we will begin by conducting a thorough investigation to uncover evidence, locate witnesses and gain a comprehensive understanding of the case. Using this information, we will advise you on what we feel is the best way to move forward with the defense. Depending on the circumstances, we may recommend accepting a plea bargain or fighting the charges in court.
Because it is considered a violent crime, battery is a very serious charge and requires an attorney who has experience defending clients accused of these actions. Whether you face charges of simple battery, a misdemeanor that could result in 60 days in jail, or aggravated battery, which is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison, we will do everything we can to minimize your chances of conviction.
Although they aren’t considered violent, drug crimes can carry severe penalties in South Florida. Our firm understands that these charges put your freedom at risk, and we work tirelessly to give you a strong defense in court. In some cases, we may also be able to get your charges reduced.
Sealing your criminal record or having convictions expunged allows you to qualify for better jobs, secure an apartment and enjoy other privileges. We have many years of experience helping clients eliminate criminal records in South Florida, and we can determine if this option is available to you.
