Criminal Defense

Pensacola Criminal Defense Lawyer Charles C. Garretson has the experience and proven results to handle these tasks. He will start with an assessment of your situation, and will hear you out on what happened and explore every option for obtaining an acquittal, case dismissal or manageable consequences.

How I Start Your Defense:

By applying 52+ years of experience I will complete an independent investigation and case review to answer important questions.

I have defended people just like you against misdemeanor and felony charges such as:

  • Assault and battery or other allegations of violent criminal acts, including those charged as domestic violence
  • Drug crimes ranging from possession of marijuana to intent to deliver or trafficking charges involving controlled substances such as cocaine  & prescription painkillers
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) — a common offense with consequences that can go far beyond driver’s license suspension and substantial fines
  • Theft crimes ranging from retail theft to burglary and robbery
  • Battery, Grand Theft etc…
  • Weapons charges, including illegal possession or discharge of a firearm

Is it possible to keep a criminal charge from negatively affecting your job prospects, educational opportunities and reputation in the community? It depends on the unique facts at play. But I’ll fight to reach the best possible resolution, whether through a negotiated plea or skilled advocacy in the courtroom.
