If you've been accused of committing a crime, your entire future may be at stake. If you are convicted, you may face harsh penalties, such as incarceration in a county or state correctional facility (jail or prison) as well as fines and the burden of living with a criminal conviction on your record for the rest of your life. In some cases, you may face sex offender registration, a single requirement that has the potential to forever ruin your reputation, employment opportunities and so much more.
Fortunately, all is not lost in the face of formal or informal criminal allegations. You have the right to an attorney. Exercise this right by contacting a Collier County criminal attorney at Calvo & Calvo, Attorneys at Law as soon as possible. Because we understand exactly what is on the line for you and your family, we are prepared to fight tirelessly to protect your rights and liberty. From our offices in Fort Myers, we represent clients throughout the surrounding areas, including all of Collier County, Florida.
Our team handles all types of misdemeanor and felony cases for our clients. We can handle these matters at a state or federal level and even in juvenile court. Each type of case is handled in a different manner, but we understand the specific differences and apply this knowledge to assist our clients in reaching the best possible results, whether it is in juvenile court or against state or federal prosecutors.
Some of the specific types of charges we can address include DUI, drug possession, petit theft and other misdemeanors that may result in little to no jail time and fines. We can also handle serious felonies such as child pornography, burglary, robbery, manslaughter and murder. A criminal defense lawyer at our firm can also help if you have a sex crime case – we are not afraid of going up against the zealous efforts of law enforcement officers and prosecutors as they attempt to put alleged sex offenders behind bars. Particularly in these cases, we have found that false allegations abound, and we are committed to asserting our clients' innocence.
Our lawyers are familiar with the local law enforcement agencies, judges, prosecutors and court personnel. We can use this familiarity to your benefit.
