Protecting Our Clients Throughout Florida

Caren Bennett, P.A., represents clients in the following criminal matters:


If you have been charged with a felony it is essential to have an experienced criminal defense attorney zealously defend you in court. Felonies are extremely serious crimes, including murder, rape, armed robbery, kidnapping, child abuse, battery, grand theft, credit card fraud and burglary charges — and have serious consequences.

A convicted felon can be sentenced to serve at least one year in prison and may be committed for life. In addition, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country, and the right to own a gun.

Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications and many job opportunities are not open to people with a felony on their record. Noncitizens can be deported if they are convicted of crimes.

How you handle a felony charge can make the difference for the rest of your life. Caren Bennett has experience handling felony charges, and works hard to attain the best possible result for you.


Misdemeanors are crimes punishable by less than one year in jail and may include such offenses as assault and battery, domestic violence charges, disorderly conduct, shoplifting trespassing and “spring break crimes” including underage drinking. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and require you to spend time in jail. Let us represent you and ensure that you receive a fair trial.

Motor Vehicle Offenses

If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI), driving with a suspended license, or with committing vehicular manslaughter, Caren Bennett, P.A., can help put you back in the driver’s seat. We can also assist you in restoring your driver’s licenses and fight traffic tickets.

Drug Crimes

Being charged with trafficking, distributing, or possessing illegal substances or paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. You can rely on our knowledge of drug crimes and our history of successful results to help you minimize or eliminate the charges against you.

Sex Offenses

Rape and sexual assault cases are often among the hardest for defendants to win. We have the experience and skills to successfully argue these cases. Contact us today.

Sealing And Expunging Records

A criminal record can prevent a person from pursuing higher education, securing a dream job, or traveling abroad. Caren Bennett, P.A., can help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record or seal those records to help you move on to a better future.
