Smart, Effective Legal Advocacy Against Florida Criminal Charges
Being charged with a crime is a frightening experience. Whether you are facing a first offense or have multiple convictions on your record, there are few things more frightening than being arrested and knowing you could be going to jail. You need a lawyer who will fight for you, to make sure you protect your future.
At Rashad Green Firm, P.A., attorney Green is a lawyer who will fight for you. He has built a reputation for meticulous, successful criminal defense marked by a firm commitment to client communication. Serving clients throughout the Tampa and Tallahassee areas, he has a remarkable track record of successful criminal defense. Mr. Green is a former prosecutor who understands the criminal justice system inside and out. He will do everything possible to help you avoid jail time and protect your future.
Vigorous Defense Against DUI Charges
Driving under the influence (DUI) is the primary criminal defense area handled by the firm. Many people charged with DUI are not hardened criminals. They’re often people who made one simple mistake. But a conviction for DUI could be catastrophic, so it is critical to fight against drunk driving charges aggressively.
Criminal Defense For Students
Similar to DUI charges, criminal charges against college students often involve one simple mistake that could result in a lifetime of consequences. Attorney Rashad A. Green represents college students in criminal defense matters. He helps with the criminal side and works with school boards to prevent expulsion. It is important to make sure your son or daughter does not jeopardize their future. Working with a trusted attorney can help your child avoid prison time, fines and loss of education.
Have You Been Charged With A Drug Offense?
Mr. Green represents clients charged with all types of drug crimes, including:
- Possession with intent
- Possession of paraphernalia
- Prescription drug crimes
- Drug trafficking and related charges
A critical aspect of drug crime defense involves a careful exploration of the police report. When the police violate any of the laws regulating searches, arrests and interrogations, it could nullify their evidence against you. As a skilled, experienced attorney and former prosecutor, Rashad Green knows how to uncover mistakes made by the police, and he knows how to argue his clients’ cases before judges and juries.
Defense Against Serious Felony Charges
The firm takes misdemeanors, petty theft cases and simple traffic violations. But felonies represent the most serious of all crimes, with the most significant penalties resulting from convictions. Rashad Green Firm, P.A., provides strong criminal defense against white collar felonies, major drug crimes, felony DUI and other major felonies.
Your Criminal Defense Questions, Answered
Below, we’ve provided answers to some of the most common questions we receive from prospective clients. After reading, we invite you to contact us for advice and guidance regarding your own case.
Will I serve mandatory jail time if convicted?
In the vast majority of cases, the answer is no – especially for a first offense. Florida does impose some mandatory minimum sentences for crimes of violence involving the possession/use of firearms, but for most crimes, sentencing is left to a judge’s discretion.
Can an attorney completely get me off the hook?
No attorney can promise results, and you shouldn’t trust any attorney who guarantees a specific outcome. Additionally, each case is unique, and the possibility of acquittal depends heavily on the evidence and other facts of the case.
That being said, a competent criminal defense attorney can almost always help you mitigate the consequences you are facing, and they will be able to help you understand all of your legal options.
I know I’m innocent. Why should I hire a lawyer?
Knowing you are innocent and proving your innocence are two very different things. As we discuss on our misdemeanor offenses page, trying to explain your way out of criminal charges can be disastrous. There are many examples of people – including celebrities – being convicted because of what they said to law enforcement while trying to “clear things up.”
How will a conviction on my record impact my future?
Unfortunately, a criminal conviction usually has consequences that linger beyond whatever sentence you receive. A conviction on your record can make it much more difficult to get hired for a desirable job, get approved for housing, get access to credit or pursue higher education. For these reasons and more, it is critical to fight to keep your record clean with the help of an experienced attorney like Rashad Green.
