Criminal Defense

Jacksonville Criminal Defense Attorneys

Protecting Your Rights and Freedom

Dealing with an arrest can be a frightening experience. A criminal prosecution, which comes after the initial arrest, carries the risk of incarceration, license suspension, job loss, court mandated supervision, and even the loss of personal property. A criminal conviction leads to a permanent criminal record and can have many other life-altering consequences.

For these reasons, few events are more overwhelming than criminal charges. You might feel as though no one is on your side, and not knowing what the future has in store can cause severe anxiety for everyone involved. In these situations, it is vital to protect your legal rights and level the playing field.

At Edwards & Edwards, P.A., we address your fears by:

  • Explaining how the criminal justice system works
  • Providing informative and straightforward legal counsel
  • Protecting your constitutional rights with an aggressive defense strategy
  • Dedicating our work to preserving your freedom and reputation
  • Building a strong defense and thoroughly preparing for litigation

We focus on understanding the unique facts of your case so we can accurately address your legal concerns. We then develop a defense strategy focused on limiting or eliminating the criminal justice system’s power to affect your future.

We handle cases involving the following allegations and more:

  • DUI
  • Traffic violations
  • Drug crimes
  • Theft and shoplifting
  • Assault or battery
  • Juvenile offenses
