Orlando Criminal Defense Attorney
Premier Criminal Defense Firm in Orlando, FL
The city of Orlando ranks as one of the top five most dangerous cities in the United States because of the numerous criminal activities that run rampant throughout the city. As a result, the Orlando Police Department comes down hard on those who have been accused of committing crimes. Even a simple misdemeanor theft crime will be heavily prosecuted in court, and those who are arrested should seek legal protection immediately.
If you are facing criminal charges, you must realize what is at stake. How you respond to your charges and defend your rights will have a direct impact on your freedom and your future. At this critical time, everything you say and do, and every decision can make the difference between imprisonment and the freedom to move forward with your life. Instead of taking a chance with your future, you should contact an Orlando criminal defense lawyer at Jaeger & Blankner. By doing so, you can have the confidence and ammunition you need to combat your allegations!
Our firm is comprised of Florida State Bar Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyers who focus on criminal cases exclusively. Before you talk to the police or do anything to fight your charges, discuss your case with us. With over
100 years of collective legal experience on our side, we are confident in our knowledge of criminal law and our ability to build the best defense strategy for our clients. All of our attorneys are former prosecutors, and we know how to defend your rights to the utmost.
Tough Representation from Former Prosecutors
As former prosecutors who understand how the state prepares criminal cases, we are able to identify and exploit weaknesses in the state's case. This can result in a dismissal or reduction in charges, or minimize penalties. Our years of experience have earned us a listing in the Martindale-Hubbell® Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, as well as an AV® Peer Review Rating for outstanding legal accomplishments.
Regardless of whether you have been charged with a sex crime or a
DUI, you can rest assured knowing that
we will fight to get the best outcome available for you. This could be through plea negotiations, suppression motions, or trial by jury. We will not stop until each and every avenue available to you has been exhausted. If you elect to fight and exercise your constitutional right to trial by jury and the jury returns a guilty verdict, we will continue to fight by appealing your case to the higher court.
Choosing the Right Criminal Defense Lawyer
"Our firm is committed to representing you to the utmost degree leveraging our many years of experience and knowledge...we are here to serve your needs."
--Joerg F. Jaeger, 2009
When you are in the process of searching for an attorney, it is important to ask what their fees are. Most firms in Central Florida will provide you with two quotes: a fee for "pleaing your case out" and a fee for actually trying your case in front of a jury. You should always ask what an attorney's fees are if you want to exercise your constitutional right to trial by jury in order to get an accurate picture of what your case will cost.
Here at Jaeger & Blankner, we quote one fee so you are not pressured into shortchanging yourself and your case by "pleaing out" in order to avoid the "additional" fee for a jury trial. What sets us apart from most firms is that we are trial attorneys. We will try your case!
We genuinely care about our clients and promise to give every client's case our utmost time and effort. Our criminal defense attorneys possess the unique combination of stellar qualifications, an honest hard work ethic, and a passion and drive, and we will strive for the results you are looking for. Don't be a victim any longer! Fight back with hard-hitting legal defense on your side!
How the Florida Criminal System Works
When you are arrested for a crime, you will face the rigid and severe process of the criminal system. You may have never needed the services of an attorney before, but now you do. The state prosecutor and the courtroom judge will never consider your circumstances, and any attempt to reason with law enforcement will be discounted at best. In some cases, explanations will be taken out of context and turned against you in court. You must keep in mind that explanations don't count in the face of the laws and codes; it is only the laws that truly count. As former prosecutors, we understand how the criminal justice system works, and how to work within the system for the best outcome of your case.
