Criminal Defense Strategies

If you have been charged with a crime in Brevard County or anywhere in Florida, your best move is to contact an aggressive, experienced defense lawyer. Call the Law Office of James Kontos today for a confidential case evaluation.

Florida has some of the toughest penalties for criminal convictions in the United States. If you are facing charges in Florida, you need a criminal defense expert on your side. James Kontos will defend your rights and work to get the best possible outcome for your case.

Each criminal prosecution is different and requires a defense strategy that is uniquely tailored for the specific circumstances. With 30 years of experience in Florida’s criminal courts, James Kontos knows how to strategize and factor for the specific accusation, district attorney, and judge. Let him use his wealth of experience to help keep you out of jail and clear your good name.

The Law Office of James Kontos will ensure that you are expertly represented based on the specific facts in your case. Some of the more common defense strategies he employs include:

  • Procedural defense strategies – We make sure that the prosecution and law enforcement obtained evidence lawfully through properly executed warrants and searches.
  • Expert cross-examination – We conduct thorough investigations to make sure that we ask the right questions and leave no stone unturned.
  • Exculpatory evidence-gathering – In the course our investigation we hunt for evidence that challenges the prosecution’s case and creates alternative narratives for the crime.


Plea Bargain

The expense and time involved in a criminal trial leads many defendants to opt for a plea bargain instead of arguing their innocence. James Kontos’ experience with state and federal criminal courts make him uniquely qualified to bargain with the prosecution on your behalf. As a Florida criminal defense lawyer, James Kontos has successfully negotiated plea bargains for scores of clients to keep them out of jail and major convictions off of their record.

A plea bargain cannot be entered into lightly. Defendants almost always must admit to guilt, whether or not they committed a crime. In these situations, James Kontos can negotiate for reduced charges, helping to keep more serious crimes off of your record and minimizing jail time and fees.
