You need and deserve an attorney who will investigate each and every fact of your case to build the best defense possible.

Tampa Criminal Defense Attorney Marc A. Joseph, P.A. looks at each client’s case from every angle to make sure nothing has been missed. He seeks to have criminal charges dismissed if there are valid grounds to do so. Your rights are always at risk when facing criminal charges because there is always the chance that law enforcement officials will violate those rights. If your constitutional rights have been violated, there may be grounds to have your Florida felon in possession charge dismissed.
If there are no constitutional grounds for having your Florida felon in possession charge dismissed, and you were not in actual possession of the firearm, ammunition or device, then you may have a strong defense to show that you were not “constructively” in possession of the firearm, ammunition, or device. Marc A. Joseph, P.A. will use your strong defense to show why you should not be convicted of this crime.
If the risk of going to trial is too great, it may be best to negotiate your situation with the prosecutor outside the court room. If you were not in actual possession of the firearm, ammunition or device, and are therefore not facing a mandatory minimum jail sentence of three years, then you may be able to avoid jail time and other consequences by pleading to a lesser charge or other measures in lieu of jail time. Marc A. Joseph, P.A. uses his assertive negotiating skills to reach a reasonable outcome to your felon in possession charge in Florida so that you can move on with your life without adding another check mark to your criminal record.
