Criminal Defense


Criminal defense takes a legal team with the expertise and knowledge of the law to successfully represent our clients. Dino Law has that expertise to help our clients who are facing criminal charges and potentially jail time. You don’t want to hire a general practice attorney when serious crimes are involved, so come directly to Dino Law.

It’s never too soon or too late to speak with a criminal defense attorney, so contact us regardless of where your case may be in the justice system. Never assume your charges are too insignificant to justify legal assistance, nor should you plan to represent yourself in criminal court. The risks are high and you can lose your freedom without competent legal representation. Dino will work tirelessly to represent your criminal case and give you the best possible outcome for you and reduce or eliminate jail time resulting from your criminal case.

Here are some of our areas of expertise our practice can help you with:

DUI Charges

If you or a loved one has been charged with being under the influence of alcohol or drugs while operating a vehicle, you need legal representation from Dino Law. You may feel your case is hopeless and the stress can be relentless. Get peace of mind from an experienced criminal defense lawyer who can remove a lot of that stress with our compassionate and professional legal services. We will work to protect your rights and limit or eliminate your penalties.

Did you know that if you are arrested for DUI with a blood alcohol level of 0.08 or above, or you refused to submit to a breathalyzer, blood, or urine test, your license will be suspended immediately for at least six months? Many people don’t know about this administrative license suspension, which is automatic and separate from your DUI criminal case. You only have 10 days to challenge this administrative suspension, so don’t delay to contact Dino Law for our assistance.

You do not automatically have to accept the accuracy of a Breathalyzer test. There are several reasons why a breath test may give an incorrect reading, or even a positive DUI level when you are not impaired. Contact Dino Law for more information if you feel your breath test results are inaccurate.

Felony Traffic & Speeding Charges

Most felony traffic charges are moving violations which can carry serious penalties for violators. Speeding may not be a felony but can be classified as such when the speeding far exceeds the speed limit, includes reckless driving, causes property damage, or results in injuries or death to passengers or others on the road. Dino Law’s attorneys are well versed in felony traffic law. We will review the charges you are facing and discuss both the consequences of those charges and your possible options. Other felony traffic charges include:

  • Repeat DUI offenses
  • Fleeing or eluding law enforcement
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Vehicle homicides

Juvenile Criminal Cases

Thousands of juveniles are arrested each year in the greater Sarasota area. Often these juveniles have made an error in judgement or a stupid mistake which can affect them for the rest of their lives. If a juvenile is charged as an adult it can make a huge difference about how long their criminal records are retained and much more. Their criminal records can follow them for many years, so juveniles need competent and professional legal representation. Don’t be misled by stories that your juvenile records are automatically deleted at the age of 18. Your juvenile criminal arrest can affect future employment, college acceptance, or being accepted into military service. Contact Dino today if you or your juvenile dependent are facing criminal charges.

Start your journey to minimizing your criminal charges today by contacting Dino Law. Our free initial consultation will be an opportunity to present the facts of your case, and we will then offer advice how you can proceed with your case, whether we can assist you in your defense, and possible options moving forward. Contact Dino today without delay if you are facing any felony or misdemeanor criminal charges.
