Criminal Law

Gautier Kitchen has practiced Criminal Law in Tallahassee for more than 15 years as both a Prosecutor and Defense Attorney. A criminal law case begins when someone is accused of a crime. A case can start during the law enforcement investigation of a citizen, or upon the arrest of a citizen.

When an individual is charged with committing an act that violates the laws of the State of Florida, it is important to discuss the situation with a criminal attorney immediately. The criminal justice system can be extremely confusing. A person charged with a crime will have many questions. What are the possible penalties for the crime charged? Are there any legal defenses to the allegations? Did the police follow proper procedures, and can that help me now?

Most people who have been charged with a crime are overwhelmed with what lies ahead: not only is the judicial process scary and complicated, but the stigma of being charged with a crime can carry harsh, life-altering affects. There is the threat to one’s future employment, the loss of freedoms, becoming a social outcast, and, of course, potential time in prison. If you have been charged with a crime, you may feel that there is nowhere to turn. But you do not have to face all of this alone.
