Contact an experienced and compassionate criminal attorney to discuss your misdemeanor or felony criminal charges by calling 727-388-9620 today. Obtaining the best result requires aggressive and experienced legal representation at every stage of the criminal case from the pre-file investigation, emergency bond reduction hearing, arraignment, disposition hearings, pre-trial conferences, evidentiary motion hearings, through a jury trial.

Many of our clients have no prior criminal record and never imagined that they would be on the wrong side of the law. We understand the collateral consequences of a criminal arrest and prosecution can be devastating, especially for someone with no other criminal record. Only by aggressively fighting the charges against you can you avoid many of these consequences.

Whether you have been wrongly accused or the State of Florida has insufficient evidence, the best result is getting all charges dropped by the State Attorney's Office or dismissed by the trial court. We work with seasoned private investigators and the most highly qualified expert witnesses, while still maintaining reasonable fees with payment plans available when needed. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney who will use every resource available for your defense is key to obtaining the best result.

Our website provides a wealth of information on criminal offenses in Florida, the possible punishments, possible collateral consequences and legal defenses available under Florida law. We use the most cutting edge legal research techniques to pursue a scholarly approach to finding all viable issues that can be aggressively litigated through motions to suppress evidence and motions to dismiss criminal charges.

We represent clients charged with all criminal offenses in State Court (including DUI and serious driving and drug offenses) throughout the Tampa Bay area including Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Pasco County,  Manatee County and the surrounding areas of central Florida.

Pre-Arrest Investigations
If you have been contacted by a law enforcement officer, contact us immediately.  Although any statement that you make to law enforcement may be misconstrued, misquoted and ultimately used against you, your side of the story can best be told through your criminal defense lawyer. We strive to convince law enforcement that an arrest is not warranted. In the event law enforcement does intend to make an arrest, your attorney can usually negotiate your surrender under terms that may speed up your release, contact the prosecutor to discuss lowering the bond amount and handle other important details that will minimize the embarrassment, stress and expense that normally accompany an arrest.

Effective Pre-File Negotiations
If you have been arrested on a felony charge, but not yet formally charged by the State Attorney's Office in Florida, we work quickly to present all mitigating factors and exculpatory evidence to the prosecutor. The mitigating factors and exculpatory evidence may convince the prosecutor not to file any felony charges, or to file only greatly reduced charges. The State Attorney's Office in Florida typically makes a filing decision within 21 days of your arrest, so you must act quickly to preserve all avenues of attack. At law office of Richard E. Wolfe, P.A., a great defense means having an aggressive and proactive offense.  Don't wait until tomorrow, what we can do today!!
