Areas of Law Description
Rooth Law Group, P.A. offers legal representation on the following areas of practice:
- Criminal Defense
The majority of our practice is focused on criminal defense. We understand how stressful and intimidating it can be to go through the criminal justice system. No one should venture through this process without skilled and aggressive legal counsel on their side. Whether you need a St. Petersburg auto accident attorney, a criminal defense attorney, or a personal injury attorney, we will be there to represent your needs.
* Drug Crimes / Drug Trafficking
We routinely represent individuals charged with drug trafficking, sale and delivery, and possession, related to a wide variety of substances including cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, and prescription pills. The prospect of a lengthy prison or jail sentence, probation, home confinement or Community Control can cause any person to feel ruined and defenseless. Aside from the obvious penalties, the simple act of being charged with a crime can also damage your social and professional reputation. That’s why you need a drug attorney Tampa believes in to make the legal process easier.
* Driving Under the Influence/Boating Under the Influence
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is one of the most serious – and unfortunately most common – traffic violations in Florida. Over the last 20 years, penalties for drunk driving have steadily increased. Simply being charged with an alcohol-related driving offense can damage an individual’s personal and professional reputation. We work hard to defend all DUI/BUI charges, regardless of whether it is your first or fifth.
* Traffic Violations
We represent a wide range of traffic infractions, both criminal and civil. These include speeding tickets, careless driving, reckless driving, and driving with suspended license. If you are going to traffic court in Florida, you need to know that you have options. Just because a cop pulled you over and wrote a ticket doesn’t mean the fight is over. Don’t just give up and pay the fine, talk to a licensed, professional traffic violation attorney about whether you can contest your ticket in court.
* Domestic Violence
Domestic violence defense is an especially sensitive area of law because the parties involved are usually related or involved in a serious relationship. It is likely that the witnesses to the incident are people you know, possibly family members or neighbors. The alleged victim is likely to be a spouse or significant other. It is an emotionally charged situation that is impacting your home life and living situation. It is in your best interest to have this resolved as soon as possible, and a domestic violence attorney Tampa relies on can help you do just that.
* Battery / Assault
We represent individuals accused of misdemeanor and felony battery and assault, including battery/assault of a law enforcement officer and other agents. Prosecutors often rely upon eye-witness or victim testimony to prove their battery and assault charges. They also look to physical evidence showing the extent of the victim’s injuries. If you have been charged with a battery or assault, you need a skilled criminal defense attorney to thoroughly investigate your case and determine if valid defenses can be raised.
* Violation of Probation or Community Control
We will aggressively work to get you back to the status of your prior sentence or an ever better sentence. We can also represent you in your request for the judge to withdraw the warrant for your arrest. Our goal is to avoid having you be taken into custody as a result of the violation, and then avoid the imposition of a harsher sentence than the one originally imposed. We want you to achieve the best possible outcome, including termination of your probation if at all possible.
* Sealing and Expunging Records
Once you have been arrested and gone through the stressful ordeal of a criminal prosecution, your criminal record remains evidence of a past you would rather forget. Unfortunately, your record remains very easy to access via the Internet and this past will follow you throughout your life. It will rear its ugly head every time you seek employment, apply for loans, attempt to rent property, and apply for entry to schools. Therefore, if you qualify to have your criminal record sealed or expunged, it is in your best interest to do so.
* Appellate Practice
Rooth Law Group handles criminal appeals and other issues that arise in the post-conviction process. Sometimes the end of a criminal case at trial is only the beginning. If you or a loved one has been convicted of a criminal offense in Florida and you believe the trial court erred in its ruling, you may need the services of an appellate lawyer.
- Personal Injury
We represent individuals who have been injured in a car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian accident, as well as individuals injured in slip and falls and those who have suffered at the hands of medical professionals. We at Rooth Law Group understand that being injured can be a traumatic experience.
* Automobile Accidents
We routinely represent individuals who have been involved in accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, or bicycles. These individuals may include the driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian.
* Slip and Fall
We often represent people who are injured in public locations due to the negligence of store owners or other landowners. These law suits are called premise liability cases.
* Medical Malpractice
We assist those who have suffered at the hands of a license medical professional obtain recovery for the patient or their loved ones.
* Dog Bites
We represent those who need to bring claims against negligent dog owners. There are laws in place to protect people from injuries caused by animals.
* Insurance Coverage Disputes
We represent citizens who have unreasonably been denied coverage and are forced to file a lawsuit against their own insurance companies to secure what they should have initially been paid.
* Child-Related Injuries and Accidents
These cases usually have the most heart-wrenching victims. We counsel the child and his or her parents through this especially traumatic experience.
