Kevin Peterford Provides Legal Defense For Most Criminal Charges

The state of Florida aggressively prosecutes DUI charges. With heavy consequences for even first-time offenders, a DUI charge is serious.

Marijuana, cocaine, and other drug crimes are common in Florida. Every drug-related crime is harshly prosecuted — Florida has some of the strictest marijuana laws in the nation. A simple paraphernalia charge could mean $1000 in fines and up to a year in prison. These laws are considered unfair in today’s modern society — as many states legalize recreational use of marijuana, Florida continues to prosecute non-violent criminals for possession of less than 20 grams.

Kevin is an experienced drug lawyer that understands drug laws and their implications very well. With his knowledge as a former prosecutor, he can help you build a solid defense.

Violent Crimes

The consequences of violent crimes are serious. Most violent crime charges carry decades of prison time, possibly even life without parole. From murder to domestic assault, violent crimes vary widely. These crimes are often driven by passion or a need for self-defense, making a strong criminal defense key for reducing penalties.

With a deep understanding of his clients and a dedication to protecting their rights, Kevin Peterford is the Palm Beach County violent crime lawyer you want on your side. He can speak clearly to the prosecution team. He helps the judge and prosecutors understand your side of the story, ensuring you the best possible outcome in your case.

Crimes committed by business and government officials are known as white-collar crimes . Typical offenses include theft, bribery, fraud, embezzlement and insider trading. Due to the corporate culture and social relationships that often intertwine white-collar crimes, sentencing is difficult. There are often many sides to a story of white-collar criminal activity, and your story deserves to be heard. Don’t let threats of reputation or employment loss scare you into pleading guilty — Kevin is here to fight for your rights.

From retail theft and shoplifting charges to armed robbery, Kevin Peterford has experience in handling various theft cases. Most individuals accused of theft are first time-offenders acting out of desperation. Your future doesn’t have to be at stake; everyone makes mistakes.

As an experienced lawyer and former prosecutor, Kevin’s wide knowledge base makes him the perfect criminal defense attorney for any criminal charge.
