We take each and every case seriously and understand that our attorneys often stand between our valued clients and severe consequences.
DUI and Drunk Driving
Driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs is a serious crime in the State of Florida. You might face life-changing penalties if you’re convicted, including a suspended driver’s license, fines and penalties, a required ignition interlock device, and a permanent criminal record. If someone is injured or killed, you might also face other criminal charges. Additionally, a DUI conviction can increase your auto insurance rates and you might face civil liability for a drunk driving crash.
If you were arrested or charged with DUI, you can’t ignore the proceedings. You might have defenses to the charges, especially if there are questions about the accuracy of your blood-alcohol test results or the police officers failed to follow the correct procedures. A criminal defense attorney can help you understand your rights and help you present the best possible defenses. Contact us for more information about our approach to DUI defense.
If you’re facing a civil traffic ticket or a criminal traffic offense, contact a skilled traffic law attorney at the Law Office of A. Sam Jubran for assistance. We help clients avoid points that can negatively impact their auto insurance rates, retain their driving privileges, and avoid a criminal conviction.
When someone under 18 is charged with a crime, there are different procedures and penalties involved. A criminal defense attorney at the Law Office of A.

Today, domestic violence and abuse charges are some of the most stigmatized. However, a criminal defense attorney understands how a minor argument can quickly escalate into a much more serious situation. Unfortunately, if you receive a conviction, you could face extensive counseling, jail time, financial penalties, and a criminal record.
Because judges and juries look so unfavorably on domestic violence, you need an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney by your side. For a confidential evaluation, contact our office today. We understand that there are two sides to every story — and believe you’re innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
While our society’s views on drugs like marijuana are rapidly changing, law enforcement still considers drug possession, distribution, and trafficking to be serious crimes. State and federal drug charges and the possible penalties will vary dramatically, depending on the substance, amount, and circumstances surrounding your arrest. If you have questions about a drug charge, contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. Sometimes, you might be eligible for deferred sentencing for a minor drug crime, which might help you avoid a criminal conviction.
White Collar Crime
White collar crimes include fraud, embezzlement, forgery, and other business-related crimes. If convicted, you might face jail time, penalties, restitution requirements, and loss of your professional licenses and reputation. Because these cases are very complicated, contact a criminal defense attorney immediately if you’ve been arrested or anticipate criminal charges.
Theft and Property Crimes
Property crimes include shoplifting, identity theft, robbery, and fraud. While petty theft convictions involve relatively minor penalties, a felony conviction can result in significant jail time, financial penalties, restitution, and other negative consequences. If you’re facing theft or property charges, schedule a confidential evaluation with a criminal defense attorney at the Law Office of A. Sam Jubran today.
Most violent crimes are typically felonies involving serious jail time and other life-changing penalties. They include the following:
- Assault and battery
- Firearms charges
- Murder and manslaughter
- Sex crimes
Due to the severity and social stigma surrounding violent crime, you should immediately contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer for help.
It’s important to understand your defenses. For example, Florida law allows you to “stand your ground” and defend yourself. A criminal defense lawyer will listen to your story, offer compassionate and practical advice, and help you build a comprehensive defense strategy that focuses on both your long and short-term goals. Contact us today for a confidential and judgment-free consultation.
Time Is of the Essence in Criminal Cases
Just as crimes are varied on so many different levels, so are the many moving parts of a criminal case. The state and federal judiciary systems are complex in their requirements and processes. The area in which you are facing charges also brings with it different scenarios. Each charge requires a different defense style and strategy.
To make matters all the more dire, there are strict time limitations that the courts mandate in each charge. Retaining an attorney to meet these deadlines is therefore of the utmost importance. For example, if you’ve been charged with DUI in Florida, you have only 10 days to request a hearing, which will offer an opportunity to save your license from being suspended.
Once you call our Jacksonville criminal defense attorneys at The Law Office of A. Sam Jubran, P.A. we can get to work on devising an effective and aggressive defense strategy, along with an analysis of the evidence. We’ll move quickly to meet any deadlines or produce any discovery required.
We always keep our clients informed as their cases progress and receive continual legal counsel and guidance. Moreover, we understand the emotional toll that criminal charges put on you and your loved ones. We treat our clients with respect and will listen to your story without judgment. We’re here to help.
