Dedicated to Criminal Defense
Florida classifies crimes as misdemeanors or felonies based on the seriousness of the offense. For example, simple assault is usually a misdemeanor, but aggravated assault or assault with a deadly weapon are felonies. Anita has represented thousands of clients in all types of misdemeanor and felony criminal cases.

If you are convicted of a crime, you could be facing criminal penalties that include time in jail or prison, large fines, probation, educational or counseling programs, community service, and other penalties. The specific consequences depend on the charge, whether it is a misdemeanor or a felony, the number of prior convictions, and other factors.
Beyond the criminal penalties, a conviction can have a devastating effect on your life, including your personal and professional reputation, the ability to hold licenses in certain professions, continuing your education, your firearm ownership rights, voting rights, and your career and family relationships. Even a misdemeanor charge will leave you with a permanent criminal record, which can limit opportunities in certain fields.
