When facing assault charges in Florida, there are many things that can affect how you are charged under the law.

Eric Barker is not the typical Lawyer, Who would say don't worry its going to be fine. He's the type of lawyer who directly tells you the pros and cons and works the case from each and every angle day and night for the sake of God and your freedom. I Guarantee he will fight your case as if he was fighting for his own freedom . I've used Eric Barker for two felony cases facing multiples charges Facing 30 years with a minimum mandatory of 15 years in State prison in 2010 and One on Aggravated assault with a Deadly weapon and Battery touch or Strike in 2018. In the first one I was charged with Trafficking Opiates over 28grams walked out with 6 year probation then lowered to 3 year probation with good behavior. On the next charge I was falsely be accused of a crime I did not commit 4 witnesses falsely accusing me of a crime I did not commit one of the witnesses being a police officer and my lawyer fought the case to its truth bottom line. If you are Truly innocent or made a mistake ,Or in need of the best lawyer who will win you case free out of jail this is the lawyer you want and need.

My son got charged with 5x Attempted Murder and 5x Aggravated Assault. I have spoken to many Super Lawyers while shopping around for the best representation that I can get for my son across the State of Florida. A few of the Super Lawyers indicated just like Mr. Lafay indicated that this case has to go to trial. Mr. Lafay rate in comparison with the other Super Lawyers was unbelievable for the experience and very high quality work that was laid out in the court room time after time. The State and Police Officers were both very much under very heavy pressure from day one. Mr. Lafay left no stone unturned, everything were examined and presented in getting this case ready for trail. This case was definitely worked to the fullest by Mr. LaFay. For the rate that Mr. LaFay charges I still can’t believe it for the very high quality representation. For a lawyer that doesn’t mislead and actually tries his very best for you Mr. Lafay is the man!!!
