If you have been recently arrested or charged with any Misdemeanor offense in the State of Florida, accused of Misdemeanor driving under the influence (DUI), have a Misdemeanor warrant for your arrest for failure to appear in court, are facing a Misdemeanor violation of probation or community control, received a Misdemeanor traffic ticket or want to explore the expunging or sealing of your Misdemeanor record, we invite you to schedule your consultation with an experienced Florida Misdemeanor defense lawyer.

Out the two main classifications of crimes in Florida, (misdemeanors and felonies), misdemeanors are the less serious of the two. A Misdemeanor is any offense where the Court may sentence an individual to county jail for up to one year (as opposed to Florida State Prison). There are two main classifications of misdemeanor charges:
A great number of cases may be eligible for diversionary programs such as the Misdemeanor Diversion Program or Drug Court which will result in dismissal upon successful completion. If these options are not available, Attorney Fisher will look for other ways to achieve dismissal of the charges. Other alternatives may include the payment of minimal court costs or probation. We will always seek to avoid a conviction being placed on our client's record (referred to as a "withholding of adjudication") and look for ways to preserve the possibility of a records expungement or sealing.
In a large number of misdemeanor cases, we will be able to attend Court for you without you having to appear.
