We Are Accessible to You

We believe a strong legal defense should be available to everyone. Our affordable pricing and willingness to take on any case — no matter the size — is just part of our commitment to being accessible to everyone. We are here for you.

We Genuinely Care for You

Clients remember us for our caring approach. We separate cases and people because we strongly believe that legal issues shouldn’t — and don't — define anyone. The more successful the defense, the less a client is defined by their case.

We Will Fight for Your Justice

Passionate advocacy for each case drives us to strive for the most successful outcome for every client, no matter how the case plays out at trial in Ocala, Marion County, Lake County, Belleview, Leesburg, Tavares, and Eustis, Florida, and the surrounding areas.

Protecting Lake and Marion County Residents' Rights

As experienced criminal defense attorneys, we defend the rights of the Ocala, Florida, residents against offenses ranging from fraud to domestic violence/stalking, theft/burglary, drug crimes, and DUI defenses. We know that the law doesn’t treat everyone the same, and oftentimes, a defendant’s voice goes unheard due to an inadequate defense. That’s why we mount aggressive defenses founded on cunning negotiation skills, passionate defense, and personal respect. We work hard, so our clients understand their options because we know every decision in a case is ultimately up to them.

From the moment a client is charged with a crime, they have to defend themselves. The cost of both time and money simply to move past pre-trial and obtain a lawyer is stressful enough. We understand and make our services accessible to all clients. Behind every case is a person, and people have rights that will be taken advantage of if they are not protected by skilled attorneys. Prosecuting attorneys in Florida will fight hard for substantial penalties. Defend Ocala proudly fights for clients in Marion and Lake Counties, including Claramont, Leesburg, Tavares, and Eustis, Florida.
