Criminal Defense DUI

TW Law Group is aware that being charged with a DUI or DWI can be very scary, and also very serious. Our Law Firm will fight at all costs to have your case dismissed, reduced, or won at trial.

DUI / Intoxication Offenses

Facing intoxication charges is stressful and impactful, and a conviction can have a lasting impact on your ability to work, drive, and hold professional licenses. Powerful lobby groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving encourage a zero-tolerance attitude toward all intoxication offenses.

DWI/DUI Offenses

If you are impaired behind the wheel of a car, you will be charged with a very serious crime: which is driving while intoxicated. Whether you are under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription drugs, the State of Florida will make you face serious consequences if you are unfit to drive a vehicle. If this is not your first offense or if your impaired driving caused injury or death, you need to contact a TW Law Group immediately. We will work to keep these penalties off your record, get your driver’s license back, and allow you to get on with your life.

Criminal Defense for Sex Crimes

Being charged with a sexual crime requires an attorney who will deal with their client with compassion and without judgment. Being charged with a Sex crime can be an overwhelming experience. From arrest and booking to your final appearance in front of a judge, the experience can be truly a horrible and terrifying. It helps to have an ally on your side who knows what to expect, who knows the law, and who knows how to fight to get the best outcome possible. The criminal defense lawyers at TW Law Group have just that combination of knowledge and tenacity. Unlike other law firms, we passionately focus on the criminal defense of our client, which gives us and our clients an edge when battling the judicial system.

This experience is important because it gives an attorney an idea of how best to approach your charges. Evidence presented by the prosecution often consists of a mixture of eyewitness testimony, physical evidence, and circumstantial evidence, which they may use to attempt to prove your guilt. Rebutting this evidence is vital to keeping a person out of jail. An experienced attorney knows exactly how to examine the evidence, knows experts who can offer their opinion and testimony, and knows a defendant’s chances for success. This experience is invaluable when facing serious charges that can jeopardize your future in its entirety.

Sexual Offenses

Sexual offenses comprise a broad range of charges in Florida law, all of them extremely serious. These crimes include the following:

Lewd or Lascivious Acts: Lewd or Lascivious Acts are sex crimes committed on a person younger than sixteen.
The four most commonly charged Lewd and Lascivious sex crimes are:
Lewd and Lascivious Battery
Lewd and Lascivious Molestation
Lewd and Lascivious Conduct
Lewd and Lascivious Exhibition
There are two important points that apply to any lewd and lascivious offenses.

1. Ignorance of the victim’s age can not be raised as a defense to any lewd and lascivious crime; and

2. The Age of the accused is not a defense; meaning if a 12 year-old were to have sex with a 14 year-old, either child, or both children, could be prosecuted for a lewd and lascivious crime.

Drug Charges

In Florida, Possession of a controlled substance can be a very serious charge. Having or being near drugs like marijuana, crystal meth, PCP, cocaine, crack, heroin, and ecstasy can have penalties with life-changing consequences. If you are charged with manufacturing or selling these drugs, you face an even greater threat to your liberty. TW Law Group criminal defense attorney can fight to get these charges reduced or even thrown out. TW Law Group will work tirelessly to keep these charges off your record.

Juvenile Crimes

In Florida, anyone under the age of eighteen can be charged as a juvenile. However, for serious charges, they may be tried as an adult. Juvenile crimes are handled in the juvenile court in front of a judge who will adjudicate guilt and punishment. Because they are handled differently than adults, juveniles require attorneys knowledgeable in the juvenile justice system. TW Law Group criminal defense team have experience handling these cases and will work to keep the juvenile out of detention and on their way to becoming productive adults.

Property Crimes

Property crimes are unique because the victim is often more vocal and active throughout the course of the case. This additional element makes the evidence against the defendant more concrete. It also makes chances of negotiating with the State of Florida more difficult. If you or a loved one has been charged with a property crime, you need a lawyer who understands the differences between handling property crimes and handling other criminal charges.
