Orlando Felony Attorney
Serious Charges Require a Serious Defense. Call Us Now.
At The Wiseman Law Firm, we act fast whenever we need to come to the defense of our clients, especially after they have been arrested for a felony violation. By legal definition, a felony is any crime that can incarcerate someone for at least one year. Fines and fiscal penalties related to felony crime convictions are also dramatically higher than misdemeanors or infractions. If you have been arrested for a felony in Florida, you must be aware of these consequences and be willing to stand up for your rights.
Your reputation and your family life may be in danger. You can lose custody and visitation of your children and face a social stigma that can affect your relationships in the future. Having a permanent criminal record can also bar you from obtaining loans, educational opportunities, professional licenses, jobs, and housing, as it will appear on any background checks that a potential employer or financial institution may run. You may even be barred from living in certain areas, such as close to schools or to the alleged victim, for certain criminal convictions.

Felony Charges We Defend
Crimes that are classified as felonies are often the most dangerous or morally upsetting on a state’s record. Prosecutors, judges, and juries can all enter the courtroom biased against the accused, having already made an image of them in their mind based on the alleged criminal violations that took place. If you want to keep everything balanced and ensure your right to a fair trial, you need a highly-experienced felony defense lawyer representing you.
Different felony crime cases we can handle include, but are not limited to:
- Grand theft
- Drug trafficking
While a felony charge is already quite serious, the circumstances that led to your arrest can escalate a felony to different levels. The higher class a felony, the harsher the penalties. If you know the exact name of the charges, be sure to tell your lawyer as soon as you can so we can get a clear understanding of what you are up against.
Potential Penalties for Felony Convictions
In addition to jail time, which will be a year or more, and the high costs of navigating the judicial system, felony convictions also come with many social implications.
In 2018, Florida voters approved Amendment 4, a landmark constitutional amendment that restores voting rights to convicted felons. To be eligible, however, former offenders must have no outstanding debts related to their case, including unpaid fines, court costs, and restitution. The financial burden from a felony conviction can therefore have a much deeper impact on your life than just emptying your bank account. Your rights are in jeopardy when facing a felony charge.
