WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOUR FUTURE'S ON THE LINE?
If you or someone you care about has been charged with a crime or questioned by law enforcement, the stakes are high. Many negative outcomes flow from a criminal conviction. First, the court will impose a sentence, which commonly may include incarceration, fines, court costs, restitution, probation or, in some jurisdictions, death. Second, a criminal conviction may result in more indirect consequences such as stigma or estrangement from family, friends or professional colleagues. An individual with a criminal record may have trouble with employment, insurance, credit or housing. He or she may lose or become ineligible for professional licenses, welfare benefits or firearms. Because of the potentially devastating consequences of a conviction, it is in the best interest of a defendant to have a strong, experienced attorney at his or her side to fight to preserve legal and constitutional rights every step of the way.

A. White Collar Crimes, Theft, Fraud & Embezzlement
Federal and State investigations of white-collar crimes can be quite lengthy before actual charges are made. An individual should consult an experienced lawyer immediately upon learning they are under investigation. Richard B. Marx, Esq. has over 40 years of experience practicing criminal law in State and Federal Courts and he understands the importance of representing clients at the onset of a criminal investigation.
A conviction for a white-collar crime such as theft, fraud, or embezzlement may take a heavy toll on your life. Most white-collar crimes are felonies, which carry lengthy prison sentences. Since employers routinely conduct background checks of prospective employees, a felony conviction can also make it extremely difficult to get a good job. Few employers would consider hiring someone who has a conviction for fraud, embezzlement or any other white collar crime. Therefore in order to preserve your freedom, your reputation and possibly your career, you need a lawyer who is willing to fight for you.
The Law Offices of Richard B. Marx & Associates has represented clients that have been investigated and/or charged in Florida with the following white-collar crimes:
At the Law Office of Richard B. Marx & Associates, we have successfully represented many individuals charged with a wide array of white collar crimes. If you are being investigated for or charged with a white-collar crime contact us immediately so that you can discuss your defense for experienced criminal defense representation.
B. Weapons Charges
The State of Florida like many other states has serious firearm laws which are strictly enforced. Many people charged with weapons charges are ordinary citizens who are carrying a firearm improperly. Most citizens do not know if they can carry a firearm legally or not and are not aware of the serious charges that can be filed against them if they are illegally carrying a firearm.
For example, it is not unusual to be pulled over for a traffic ticket and end up being charged with a felony because a gun was carried improperly in your car. As a convicted felon, you would be unable to own a gun legally for the rest of your life — all for doing something that you did not even know was illegal.
To preserve your freedom and your future, you need an experienced attorney in weapons charges who is willing to fight for you. The Law Offices of Richard B. Marx & Associates are very familiar with the firearm statutes and the legal and constitutional defenses to violating these laws.
C. Drug Offenses
While possession of a small amount of marijuana may be a misdemeanor, most drug charges are felonies and result in substantial fines and jail or prison time. In many instances a court may impose harsher sentences if certain circumstances exist while the crime was committed. For example if drug possession or sale is within 1,500 feet of a school or church or if a firearm is your possession at the time of drug arrests the penalties are harsher.
In addition to a long prison sentences, any felony conviction will make it difficult to get a job in the future. Even misdemeanor convictions for possession of a small amount of marijuana will be on your criminal record and can be viewed by prospective employers. If your child is convicted of a drug charge, he or she may not be able to obtain any government student aid, loans, or grants for one year for a first conviction or two years for a second conviction.
To preserve your freedom and your future, you need an attorney who will fight for you. The Law Offices of Richard B. Marx has obtained not guilty verdicts, dismissals and reductions in drug charges including cases where the clients had over a kilogram of drugs in their possession.

D. Juvenile Justice Proceedings Juvenile law deals with crimes committed by children. The maximum age varies from state to state, but the maximum age for a juvenile offender is usually seventeen. Governmental bodies, including the federal government, states, and cities, prosecute all types of crimes committed by children, from traffic violations to felonies like rape and murder. If your child has been charged with a crime, it is essential that you seek legal counsel from an experienced juvenile defense attorney at once so that you can preserve his or her rights and future.
Children involved in juvenile court matters have many of the same rights their parents would have if they were accused of a crime. These rights include the right to remain silent, the right to cross-examine witnesses against them, and the right to be represented by an attorney. Juveniles often have additional rights - in most states, juvenile court records are not open to the public, but are sealed, so that no one will be able to learn about a juvenile record. An experienced juvenile defense attorney like Richard B. Marx, Esq. can explain the practices and procedures of the Juvenile Courts to take some of the mystery out of a frightening situation.
If your child has been arrested or is being investigated for crime contact us immediately as your child’s future may depend upon it.
