2017 Brings Important Changes to the "Stand Your Ground" Law

Florida's self-defense law has changed radically once again. Over the last few decades, Florida has expanded self-defense from an affirmative defense at trial to a statutorily based immunity from criminal and civil liability. Recently, Governor Rick Scott signed SB 128 into law which now requires prosecutors, in a pre-trial proceeding, to prove by "clear and convincing evidence" the accused did not act in self defense.

One injury can lead to multiple remedies.

Many injury claims result in a multitude of potential remedies for the injured person. Most people are fairly familiar with personal injury claims. Many times these claims are covered by insurance or relatively well to do entities/business which self insure.

The "Prescription Defense" in the State of Florida

Many clients come to us after they are arrested for Unlawful Possession of a Controlled Substance under Florida Statute § 893.13 - i.e. drug possession. Frequently, our clients are charged with a felony, and, with it, the possibility of up to five years in prison, for possession of a prescription drug for which they actually have a prescription! In the State of Florida, if you are arrested for possession of a prescription drug that you or a family member obtained through the use of a lawful prescription, you may have an affirmative defense that bars prosecution.
