A new study on civil citations for juvenile offenders revealed that just 4% who complete the civil citation programs re-offend. Through civil citation, instead of facing arrest, juvenile offenders would do community service and write apology letters to their victims. The Children’s Campaign and the authors of the recent study are now calling for an expansion of civil citations for juvenile offenders in the state of Florida. #civilcitation   #Florida

In Florida, a person can be charged with various marijuana offenses, including possession, cultivation or trafficking. This could mean jail time, expensive fines and a criminal record. All of these offenses also could be charged on the federal level, which could carry harsher penalties and mandatory minimums. If you are facing a state or federal offense, it is important to build a strong defense in your case.

Domestic violence charges are some of the most commonly prosecuted offenses in both the St. Petersburg and Clearwater area. That being said, it is not uncommon for people to falsely accuse a spouse or ex-spouse of domestic violence to get ahead in either a divorce proceeding or child custody case. Regardless, it is important for anyone accused of this serious offense to consult with an experienced attorney.

As a former prosecutor, Melinda Morris understands how to build strong defense strategies for her clients and will aggressively fight to clear their name. #domesticviolence   #StPetersburg

My wife hired Mr Shapiro and Ms. Morris to represent me; I was charged with a crime because of probable cause. The Morris Law Group accepted the case, and they did what they do best; all charges were dropped in 5 weeks. I will use them again to expunge my record. If you are looking for a Law Group to represent you or a loved one, Morris Law Group is the law firm to call.

I had a ticket witch I feel was wrongfully cited. I maybe spent 10 minutes in total working with this professional law group. They got all the information needed from me and went right to work. Within the week I got a phone call with an email dismissing the citation. Had a known how good they were I'd have called them earlier. Thanks Morris Law Firm!!!

I would highly recommend Ms. Morris and her law firm to anyone who is needs an experienced and knowledgeable attorney with affordable fees. She’s dedicated, thorough and knows the law. I am convinced without her expertise my case could have gone very badly for me? I am very much satisfied with her professionalism, fees, expertise, service and most importantly, my results. I would recommend her to friends and family and her representation rose above my expectations.
