Felony Charges

Jacksonville Felony Defense Lawyer

Let’s Talk About Your Situation - Call for a Consultation

For people charged with a felony offense, the first question they usually ask is, “Will I go to jail?”

The answer to that question depends on two main factors:

  1. How serious are your charges?
  2. What does your prior record look like?

While every case is different, our laws use a system called “Structured Sentencing” to ensure that similar crimes are punished in similar ways.

However, within the bounds of this sentencing framework, there is frequently a fair range of discretion left to the court as to what the exact nature and terms of a punishment may be. This means there are several ways our Jacksonville felony defense attorney can fight on your behalf.

Call (910) 405-8459 to schedule a consultation at The Trevor J. Avery Law Firm and start discussing your legal strategy.

Investigating the Facts

Before we get to the issue of what sentence the court may hand down, there is the important issue of whether you did anything wrong, or whether the prosecution can actually convict you of a crime. In any felony defense, one of the most important elements is gathering information about the case.

At our initial consultation, you can tell us a great deal about the facts of your case.

We want to know:

  • Who the potential witnesses may be
  • What statements were made to the police
  • What your side of the story is
  • How you were treated by the police during the arrest
  • A host of other pieces of information that tell us what your case is about

Even minor details from this information can have a drastic impact on a case outcome.

We Investigate & Advise, You Make Final Decisions

As a case develops, we will file Discovery Motions with the court, compelling the prosecution to reveal the evidence that has been collected against our client. This gives us a picture of the case from the State’s perspective. Putting all this information together, we can decide whether you are likely to be convicted of anything at all.

Remember: no matter what you are told, in the end, it is always your case, and your lawyer works for you, so the decision about whether to cut a deal or take your case to trial is always yours to make!

Our felony defense attorney in Jacksonville have used negotiation and persuasive arguments to help clients avoid prison sentences. Call (910) 405-8459 to schedule a consultation with The Trevor J. Avery Law Firm.

The Opinions That Matter Most

Read What Our Clients Are Saying
    “I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!”
    I was facing 3 charges, granted the police officers completely overcharged and without merit, however, Trevor knew what to do in order to prepare a strong case to make sure that when he spoke with the DA this would be clearly displayed. If convicted of one of the charges I was accused of it would have put my employment in jeopardy. Needless to say, I was overjoyed and elated when I received his call that "ALL" charges had been dismissed! He charged me a reasonable fee and accepted a payment plan! I am extremely pleased with his service and would recommend him in a heartbeat!

    “I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery.”
    I hired Mr. Avery to represent me for my custody case. He was upfront with me about what to expect right from the beginning and he came through. He was easy to talk to, and I knew he was being honest with me about my case. I had to call him a couple of times after business hours because of my work schedule and he still made time to answer my questions. I have my kids thanks to Mr. Avery. I would recommend him to anyone.
