Areas of Practice:
- Sex Offenses
Being charged with a sexual offense can be a frightening time in your life. The sensitive nature of sex crime charges requires an experienced and qualified attorney. Florida law states that a sex offender is someone who has been convicted of a sex offense in Florida or another jurisdiction. Sex offenses range from sexual misconduct to transmission of child pornography by electronic device. Some examples of potential sex offense charges include kidnapping a minor, false imprisonment of a minor, luring or enticing a child, human trafficking, sexual battery, prostitution, video voyeurism of a minor, rape, and sexual performance by a child. If you’ve been accused of a sex crime and are in need of legal help, we can help.
Avallone Law excels in detailed investigations of our clients’ cases to determine the validity and credibility of both the complainant and their witnesses.
- Driving Under the Influence
Under Daytona Beach, Florida law, DUI is driving a motor vehicle with an unlawful blood alcohol or breath alcohol level of .08 or above. A DUI conviction can cost anywhere from $500 to $2,000 depending on the level of alcohol found in your system and at least 50 hours of mandatory community service, a year of probation, and six months to five years of jail time depending on the number of offenses you’ve had. Other issues you may face include your car being impounded, a felony conviction if you’ve been convicted three or more times of a DUI, manslaughter or vehicular homicide charges if anyone is killed as a result of a crash, and your driver’s license being revoked. Not to mention the personal consequences of a DUI conviction can leave you with a poor reputation, cause relationship stress with those you love, and potentially cause you to lose your job or make it difficult to find work in the future. If you’ve been charged with driving under the influence, you need an experienced attorney on your side who can help you understand the legal process and more importantly, make sure your rights are protected.
DWI stands for driving while intoxicated and is synonymous with DUI, but can also include impairment by drugs or an unknown substance.

There are strategic ways to beat a robbery case that include knowing the detailed laws that surround such charges. Avallone Law P.A. understands the importance of evidence needed for a robbery conviction and we help our clients to not only understand the charges that they face. Each case is different and we work one-on-one with our clients to understand every aspect of their situation to ensure the best possible outcome in their case.
- Resisting arrest
A resisting arrest charge typically means a person used some form of physical force or obstruction against a police officer to prevent their arrest. If you’ve been charged with resisting arrest, there are multiple defenses available under Florida law to contest your charge. Whatever the circumstances are surrounding your case, we can help you navigate the law and decide the best course of action to take moving forward.
- Drug trafficking/possession
If you’re facing drug charges, whether possession or trafficking, you’re probably wondering if it’s possible to get your charges dropped or penalties lowered. Avallone Law P.A. has years of experience helping clients to get their possession charge dismissed or their drug case dismissed.
In Florida, a possession charge means the person was holding the drug for personal use. Possession of most controlled substances in Florida, except for the medical use of marijuana through a doctor’s recommendation, may be charged as a felony. State law does allow a first degree misdemeanor charge for simple possession of marijuana in an amount less than twenty grams.
Penalties for drug charges can include fines, community service, probation, and jail time. Consequences of these charges can be hefty, especially if it’s your second or third offense, includes charges of intent to sell or traffic, or includes drugs such as heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, or methamphetamine. If you’re facing drug charges, you need an experienced attorney like Larry Avallone on your side.
- Traffic offenses
It may not always be necessary to hire an attorney for a speeding ticket or other minor traffic offense, but serious traffic offenses can result in heftier penalties such as expensive fines, your driver’s license being suspended, points on your driver’s license, community service, probation, and even jail time. Leaving the scene of an accident or reckless driving charges are just a couple of examples of traffic offenses that hiring a lawyer would be beneficial for. We have years of experience defending clients in traffic court and work closely with our clients to understand their individual case so we can offer them the best legal advice for their situation. If you’ve been charged with a traffic offense and need help understanding your charges and the legal process, contact us today.
