Our passion is in representing people, not profits or powerful State interests. Representing people in their criminal, traffic and family law cases, gives us the opportunity to assist people through very difficult times and minimize the overall impact on their lives.
Our previous experiences with the criminal justice and military justice system demonstrated there is a significant need for quality representation, when folks are overcharged and falsely accused by the State and Federal Government.
Jeffrey Blumenauer's experience in the U.S. Army Reserves as a Defense Counsel and has additionally served as an Assistant Operations Officer (S-3) with the 154th Legal Operations Detachment (TDS) provides him with valuable experience and a unique approach to defending those falsely accused with crimes.
Jon Hackworth's time as an assistant public defender allowed him the opportunity to try over 25 criminal jury trials. He also had the opportunity to prepare criminal appeals and conduct one (1non juryry criminal contempt trial.
Additionally, our business experience allows us to take a uniqholisticstic approach to your criminal case, including assessing the potential impact on your business, insurance, etc.
We pride ourselves on several differences.
We constantly see individuals, who are represented by big Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater law firms that lack a personal touch, who would often appear in Court to find an attorney, they had never met before representing them or would call and have to work through a secretary or paralegal to speak to their attorney.
We also constantly saw situations where attorneys would attempt to dissuade or talk their clients out of going to trial on their criminal charges. We pride ourselves on our trial experience and if our client wants a trial, we will go to trial and force the Government to prove their charges.
We also regularly hear of individuals being turned away from quality legal representation because they are unable to come up with big retainers. We pride ourselvworkingorkign with individuals through payment plans and other financial arrangements to ensurreceiveecieve quality legal representation, regardless of your immediate financial situation.
We look forward to working with you and demonstrating our different, client centered approach to practicing criminal law.
