Injured at Work?

They represent the company’s interests. While someone at the company may try to convince you their interests and yours are the same, that is simply not the case. You need to hire your own attorney if you want to ensure you receive the care and compensation to which you are entitled by law.

The insurance company may tell you you do not need an attorney, but remember: the insurance company representative does not represent your interests! He or she represents the insurance company’s interests only. It is his or her job to keep the insurance company’s payout to a minimum, even if you deserve more. For more information about what to do if you have been injured in an accident, we invite you to read our answers to frequently asked questions or to contact our office today to schedule a free consultation with an attorney.

A criminal CHARGE is not the same as a CONVICTION.

Close-up. Arrested man handcuffed hands at the backA criminal charge is not the same thing as a criminal conviction. If you have been charged with a crime, it is critical that you consult with an attorney without delay as the consequences of a criminal conviction can be severe. If you are convicted of a felony, you could wind up facing lengthy prison time, hefty fines and infringement of your rights, such as your right to vote, own a gun, hold public office, get a job, qualify for a mortgage, or rent an apartment. Even a misdemeanor conviction can dramatically impact your life with possibly consequences such as up to a year of jail time, probation, and fines. Whether you choose Sackman Trial Group or another attorney, it is important that you seek advice from an attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced in criminal matters before you agree to talk with law enforcement or appear before a judge. Anything you say can be used against you in court! Do not give up your right to remain silent or your right to seek legal counsel. Contact The Sackman Trial Group today for a consultation.

 police officer arresting drug dealer with car in the backgroundIn Florida, possession of controlled substances may result in a third degree felony charge and stiff penalties. Marijuana is one exception. If arrested while in possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, you might only be facing a first degree misdemeanor charge.

However, even conviction on a misdemeanor charge could lead to imprisonment up to one year, depending on the degree. If you’ve been charged with possession of other types of controlled substances, now including bath salts and spice, and you are convicted, a third degree felony could result in incarceration up to five years and a fine of up to $5,000. A second degree felony charge could result in incarceration up to 15 years and a fine up to $10,000. Possession with intent to sell could result in even harsher penalties.

If you are facing possible conviction on drug charges, whether a misdemeanor or felony, it is important you know and exercise your rights. Sackman Trial Group is here to help. Contact our office to schedule a consultation to speak with an attorney about your case.
