Representation You Can Trust; Attorneys You Can Rely On.

St. Petersburg Criminal Defense Lawyers

Protecting Those Accused in Florida

Fleming Law Group’s team of criminal defense lawyers handle all types of felony and misdemeanor charges in St. Petersburg. As former prosecutors, our attorneys have significant negotiation and trial experience from both sides of the courtroom. No matter what the circumstances of your arrest were, it is always in your best interests to consult with a knowledgeable St. Petersburg Criminal Defense attorney about your options. Even if you believe you committed a crime, the state’s charges against you may be exaggerated and result in stricter penalties than the situation warrants.

Our firm wants to hear your story. We thoroughly investigate cases to uncover the hidden truths that prosecutors and law enforcement overlook. If charges cannot be reduced or dismissed, we search for alternatives to imprisonment. Many of our clients have struggled with addiction and mental illness. For them, a prison sentence would have only made their problems worse. We urge courts to consider what will truly help a person reform and have had many sentences converted to court-mandated addiction and rehabilitation programs.
