Areas of Law Description
Our criminal law practice includes, but not limited to the following:
- Bench Warrant
When a police officer has a bench warrant for your arrest, you will be taken into custody. You will go to jail over something as simple as a forgotten traffic ticket, past-due child support or a fine you forgot to pay. Therefore, you should call an attorney as soon as you know a warrant is a possibility. The attorneys at Katz & Phillips can potentially prevent law enforcement coming to your door. If police officers are already there, we can step in to get you out of jail as soon as possible. Then, we can go about the job of resolving your problem so that you are not faced with a criminal record.
Have you been charged with conspiracy? If so, it’s in your best interest to speak with an Orlando conspiracy defense attorney at our office right away. Conspiracy is a serious criminal offense, punishable by imprisonment, large fines, and a mark on your criminal record. At Katz & Phillips, P.A., you can trust you’ll receive the dedicated representation and aggressive defense needed to tackle your charges, and increase your chances of preserving your rights and freedom. All of the attorneys at our office have a great deal of experience handling cases in the Florida criminal court system, but more importantly are committed to helping you resolve your case in the best possible outcome.
- Domestic Violence
The attorneys at Katz & Phillips have extensive experience with handling domestic violence problems, and we will work hard to prove to a court that you are not guilty of the acts that law enforcement or a loved one have charged you with. Domestic violence is an emotional crime, but emotion has no place in a court room. Facts are necessary, and you can trust the attorneys at Katz & Phillips to identify the mitigating factors in your case and to make use of them. We will make every effort to make sure an incident of domestic strife does not ruin your life and your reputation and result in a criminal record.
Call us today if you’ve been charged with any DUI offense, even if it was for underage drinking, drugs or a multiple offense. We’ll fight our hardest to keep the penalties against you to a minimum. If you’re convicted without experienced legal representation, you could face probation and jail time, suspension of your driver’s license, fines, community service and mandatory DUI classes. When you put your trust in us, we’ll dedicate ourselves to making sure the worst of these penalties don’t happen to you. Founding partner David Katz is a former DUI/Intoxilyzer Specialist with the Seminole County State Attorney’s office, so no one knows better how the breathalyzer test works and how many things can go wrong with it. Call us today to find out how ironclad the state’s evidence against you is – or if something might have gone wrong.
If you think your case is eligible for expungement, call the attorneys at Katz & Phillips. We have been representing Florida residents against criminal offense charges for decades. We know how important clearing your record is to you, and we will work exhaustively to make it happen. Expungement is not just a matter of filing some paperwork with the state. It involves convincing a judge that you should have your record erased. For this, you need an attorney who has successfully prepared and presented such cases before.
- Federal Crimes
If you are facing arrest on federal charges, as opposed to charges in the state of Florida, not every attorney can help you. Representation in federal court requires special licensing and a level of experience different from that required by the state court system. When you are up against a federal charge, you are facing some of the greatest minds the United States government has to offer, from U.S. attorneys to government agencies. Therefore, you need an attorney who is even better. You need the law firm of Katz & Phillips. We have successfully negotiating the legal labyrinth of the federal court system before. We are not intimidated by the clout of the United States government. We will tackle it on your behalf and defend your rights zealously, whether you are charged with tax evasion, counterfeiting, terrorism or treason.
- Hit & Run
The attorneys at Katz & Phillips have successfully defended clients against hit-and-run incidents before. Call us so we can begin sorting through the factors of your case. They might make a difference between serious criminal charges and an acquittal.
- Internet Crimes
If you have been charged with an internet crime, you need an attorney who just is as experienced with this technology as the investigators are. But that may not be enough. You also need someone with exceptional criminal defense experience. The two go hand in hand when it comes to dissecting internet crimes. An experienced defense attorney will be able to find the flaws in the prosecution’s case and defend you against them. The attorneys at Katz & Phillips make it a point to keep up-to-date with the ever-growing internet industry and the crimes involved with it. This can make a significant difference when it comes time to use our extensive legal experience in the courtroom and defend your rights.
- Juvenile Crimes
The attorneys at Katz & Phillips know that having your child take a misstep and get into trouble with the law can be a heartbreaking thing. But we’re here to help and to make sure that, whenever possible, this doesn’t have to affect college opportunities, work opportunities and the social aspects of life as an adult. We’ll treat your child’s problem as if he or she were our own, and we’ll do everything we can to help him or her overcome this challenge in the most positive way possible.

We have handled many military criminal matters. The issues we have successfully dealt with range from Army and Air Force Article 15/Non-Judicial punishments through gender and special courts-martial. We can deal with captain’s mast issues if you are with the Navy or Coast Guard. We have handled office hours infractions with the Marines.
- Probation Violations
Our lawyers have a great deal of experience dealing with issues of probation violation. We know that sometimes things can happen, things that are out of your control. We are here for you, to make sure that such a mistake does not result in you going to jail, potentially for a very long time. You have certain rights. You cannot be sent to jail without a hearing. If you face this hearing on your own and try to explain to the judge what went wrong, the worst might occur. However, if you have an experienced criminal defense attorney to argue your case for you, you stand an excellent chance of faring much better. Your mistake does not have to ruin the next several years of your life. Call the attorneys at Katz & Phillips right away. We will do everything we can to ensure that you remain on probation and not behind bars. We will use every resource to make sure the terms of your probation stay the same and do not become so difficult as to put an undue burden on your life.

Over the years, we have dealt with the full gamut of sex charges, including various degrees of rape, child molestation, pornography and sexual abuse, prostitution, solicitation, indecent exposure, sexual assault and battery and lewd and lascivious acts. We know what you have on the line if you are convicted, and we care. But we cannot begin constructing your defense until you call us and get us on your side. Contact the attorneys at Katz & Phillips as soon as possible so our team can make a difference. We have your future at heart.
- Theft Crimes
Even misdemeanors are serious charges and can leave you with a criminal record. You can go to jail and find it difficult or impossible to qualify for loans, jobs or housing for the rest of your life. If you’ve been charged with theft, you need an advocate on your side, an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney who can work through the factors of your case and use them to make a difference. The attorneys at Katz & Phillips can construct a defense for you that we can use to try to get an acquittal, or have the charges against you dropped or possibly reduced so you suffer less penalties. We’ve successfully defended countless people just like you, faced with a conviction for a theft crime. Call us today for a consultation so we can discuss how to best approach your problem.
