Can I Afford to Work with a Defense Attorney on My Case?
While you may wonder if it makes sense to pay for a lawyer to represent you, keep in mind that the cost of hiring a lawyer may pale in comparison to the cost and consequences of a criminal conviction.
Consider the following fines you may face in various cases:
For general criminal charges in Florida, those convicted may face prison time and may be expected to pay the following fines (per Florida Statutes § 775.083):
- Life felony: $15,000
- First- or second-degree felony: $10,000
- Third-degree felony: $5,000
- First-degree misdemeanor: $1,000
DUI fines may involve the following financial penalties:
- Fines of $500 or more for a first DUI misdemeanor
- $1,000 or more for a second DUI conviction
- Up to $10,000 for DUI manslaughter
- Up to $10,000 for DUI manslaughter/leaving the scene
You may also face imprisonment for a DUI conviction, depending on the number of your prior convictions and other charges, according to Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV).
To determine if it makes sense to work with a criminal defense lawyer, consider the cost of convictions—in terms of fines, jail time, and negative impacts on your life.

Our Defense Lawyers Can Take on Attempted Murder Cases in Orlando
Attempted murder in the first degree occurs when a person makes a planned, direct action to cause the death of another person. It requires premeditation and acting upon that premeditation. A conviction of first-degree attempted murder is punishable with life imprisonment.
Attempted murder in the second degree occurs when there is no premeditation, and, like manslaughter, may be referred to as a “crime of passion.” Second-degree attempted murder is punishable by imprisonment for up to 15 years.
Factors influencing whether an attempted murder charge will be considered first or second degree include (but are not limited to):
- Whether the offense was related to gang activity
- Whether the offender had a previous criminal record
- Whether a firearm was involved
- Whether the offense was committed against a public official, police officer, or member of Congress
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) issued a report regarding Orlando’s crimes in 2019. It found that 25 homicides and instances of non-negligent manslaughter happened that year. In each of these criminal cases, having a lawyer could have meant the difference between a conviction and an acquittal.
