Should You Hire a Private Attorney?

Often times clients who have been arrested do not think they can afford to hire a private attorney.  While it is true that some criminal defense attorneys can require a very expensive retainer we believe that everyone deserves a quality criminal defense.  The public defender's office will provide a defense to those that cannot afford one and they do a very good job.  However, they are over worked and cannot provide the personalized attention that privately retained counsel can. 


When you hire a Chipley criminal defense attorney you will have access to our attorneys and we will work with you and your loved ones to provide you with the best defense possible.  We also accept payments plans and will work with families to make quality legal defense affordable.


Contact us for a free consultation.  Your Freedom is too valuable not to have someone fight for you.

Timeline of a Criminal Case

When you are arrested in Chipley, Washington County or anywhere throughout Florida, your case will follow a specific time line. After arrest, a bond will usually be set and you can bond out of jail or could remain in jail if the bond amount is unreasonably high.


Our Chipley Bond Reduction Lawyers routinely file bond reduction motions and every attempt will be made to get you or your loved one out of jail.  If you elect to fight the charges against you the case will proceed towards trial.  The state must provide your lawyer with any and all evidence they have in your case, including reports, witness statements and scientific evidence. This is called “discovery”. After that process is completed, your case can take several turns. Often times in when the evidence supports its, we file a suppression motion to throw out illegaly obtained evidence or admissions.  An experienced Chipley criminal defense laywer may be able to get your charges dropped, reduced or get you into a diversion program.


The State generally speaking must bring an accussed to trial within 6 months of arrest.  If you don’t want to enter a plea to the charge and exercise your constitutional right to have a trial, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney.  Mr. Dennis has been practicing for over fifteen years in the panhandle.  He is a former trial court staff attorney for the 14th Judicial Circuit.  In that capacity he worked with, and for the, judges of this circuit, including Washington County.  This experience has helped Mr. Dennis understand the internal policies and procedures of the 14th Judicial Circuit and he uses that experience to aggressively defend his clients in the very system in which he once worked. 


In addition to our experienced Chipley criminal defense lawyers our staff includes a former Bay County Sheriff's Deputy who understands the system from the perspective of law enforcement.  When you hire an attorney from Jones Gaglio & Dennis you hire the entire firm and have a team working on your behalf.  We hope you give us a chance to fight for you.
