Have you been accused of a crime? Do you fully understand the penalties you could face if you are found guilty? Do you want to make certain that your rights are protected and every effort is made to minimize the repercussions of the criminal charge?
I am Clermont criminal defense attorney Joel L. Gross. I am also a former law enforcement officer. Prior to becoming an attorney, I was a Deputy Sheriff with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office. This gives me a unique perspective. I truly understand the methods used by law enforcement. I know how they work with prosecutors to build cases against accused criminals. I also am well-versed in their requirements, and the mistakes they may make, mistakes that violate the rights of the accused.
When you choose me to handle your criminal defense case, I will thoroughly review the details of the arrest to make certain that your rights were not violated, and that there was no illegal search and seizure. If I determine that a mistake was made, I will request that evidence be suppressed, or I will seek to have the entire case dismissed.
Even if the case against you seems strong, I will use my skill and knowledge to create a criminal defense strategy designed to provide the best possible outcome.
I defend against crimes such as:
I can also assist with probation violations and post-conviction matters.
