A misdemeanor might not seem like a big deal, but when you consider that any arrest on your record will show up on a background check, that changes things. You may have problems getting a job, applying for a loan or applying for school, all because of that arrest. You can’t afford to let that happen. You need a lawyer who will stand up for you.
My name is Curtis P. Leonard, and I handle a wide variety of misdemeanor cases for people who have gotten on the wrong side of the legal system, including cases involving:
- Driving on a suspended license
- Possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana
- Petty theft
- Reckless driving
I prepare all cases for trial so that I have a strong position for negotiation; and to show the prosecution I am serious about your defense.
I will listen to your account of events, and I will be completely honest with you about your situation and what I can do for you.
I will examine all of the evidence the police have gathered against you, looking for any misconduct or mistakes on the arresting officer’s part. I will work diligently to find any possible defense in your case that will allow for a reduction in charges or a dismissal of your case.
An Accomplished Local Trial Attorney
I grew up in central Florida and decided to practice law here because I want to help the people who matter to me most.
I worked at the Lake County Public Defender’s Office where I helped create their early intervention and resolution program. This gave me extensive trial experience. I care about what happens to you, and I will strive for a positive resolution in your case.
