Self-Defense

Police and prosecutors have a role to play in the justice system. As a result, they generally present only one side of the story. In many cases, however, there may be another critical aspect of the story: you may have been acting in self-defense. It is up to you to prove to the judge or jury that the exercise of self-defense was lawful. Given the recent publicity and backlash surrounding Florida's self-defense laws, this can be an uphill battle.

Our attorneys have extensive experience negotiating the hurdles surrounding self-defense. We not only have a firm grasp of the applicable legal standards, but also solid experience persuading judges and juries. We can help you present a compelling case.
