Drug Charges: The Manatee County Sheriff is cracking down on drug crimes in Bradenton and Sarasota. They plan to aggressively prosecute any drug offenders to keep their streets clean. A first time misdemeanor could lead to jail time or probation. That’s why you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer with an aggressive approach.

DUIs: If you’ve been charged with driving under the influence, the Florida law is not lax. Whether it’s your first offense or your third, there are severe consequences to DUIs. Our criminal defense lawyers are here to help you reduce your DUI charge to a reckless driving offense. We can tell you more when you schedule your free consultation.

Robbery and Burglary: It’s difficult to catch a robber, so when you’re caught, you have a high risk of conviction. The Manatee County police department has been aggressive in its arrests for burglary, often resulting in false arrests and overcharged citizens. We’ll do everything in our power to prove your innocence. Gathering surveillance footage, pictures, and more, we will work to provide a lesser punishment or a dismissal.

Manatee County Warrants: If you have a warrant out for your arrest, you can team up with our criminal defense lawyers to get it withdrawn. We will stand with you before the judge and present evidence as to why your arrest is not warranted. Come in for a free consultation, and we will discuss all of the details regarding your specific case further.

Probation Violations: If you’ve violated your probation, you might be looking at a greater jail time than originally proposed. You need a criminal defense attorney that can help you navigate these charges. Bradenton has different courtrooms for the type of offenders it sees. If you violated probation on a misdemeanor, you would see a different judge than if you violated probation on a felony. Schedule your free consultation with Denmon Pearlman to learn more about the steps in your criminal case.
