Areas of Practice
As a former prosecutor, I have the "know how" to skillfully negotiate plea offers for my clients. Further, a lot of times, there are numerous legal and factual issues that can negate the elements of a DUI. Also, there may be constitutional issues or illegalities made by the stopping or arresting officers which could cause your case being dismissed or the charges being reduced. Moreover, if there is a breath test, there possibly could be errors of maintenance or administration which could cause it to become inadmissible in court. With all these legal questions, it is important to have an attorney who understands this area of the law and will strive to get you the best possible result.
Felony charges in Florida are defined as criminal charges which are punishable by more than a year of incarceration. A person convicted of a felony can be sentenced to incarceration in the Florida Department of Corrections. It is therefore crucial that you have an experienced attorney to review your case.
Misdemeanor charges in Florida are defined as criminal charges which are punishable by less than a year of incarceration. A person convicted of a misdemeanor can be sentenced to incarceration in the county jail. Whether its battery, assault, petit theft, criminal mischief < $1000, trespass, driving with license suspended, no valid drivers license, habitual traffic offender, disorderly conduct/intoxication, or resisting an officer without violence, etc., I have experience with all of these charges and will pursue the best possible outcome for your situation.
Even minor Juvenile charges can have a major impact on your child and their future. As a former Sarasota County Juvenile Prosecutor, Daniel Nawara has a deep understanding of the juvenile justice system and will be able to navigate you and your child through this entire process.
In Florida, a violation of probation occurs where a defendant substantially and willfully violates the conditions of a probationary sentence. Probation proceedings differ significantly from ordinary criminal cases due to a lower standard of proof and the lack of many procedural and constitutional protections.
If you have been accused of violating probation or community control, you may have legal defenses to dismiss the charges or minimize the potential sentence. Thus, hiring a skillful attorney is crucial.
Daniel Nawara was a former civil litigation attorney. Whether you have been injured in a slip and fall, been involved in automobile accident, or a loved one has suffered wrongful death, I will seek to get you the compensation and the justice you deserve.
In a Dissolution of Marriage, “Marital property” will be equitably divided between you and your spouse when your marriage is dissolved. While there is a legal presumption that “equitable” means “equal”, there are instances when a disproportionate distribution favoring one party or the other, may be more fair. Under equitable distribution, you will end up with a post-divorce estate of similar value to your spouse’s rather than a joint owner of each asset.
Marital property is any asset acquired during your marriage from marital labor or marital income, usually up to the date of the filing of the divorce. This includes, but is not limited to: houses, land, businesses, retirement accounts, stocks and stock options, bonds, notes receivable, assets held in trusts or partnerships, airplanes, boats, cars, investments, the contents of your home, gifts from or to your spouse, jewelry, collections, etc.
