Resisting Officer Without Violence to His or Her Person

Resisting Arrest without Violence is a first degree misdemeanor (punishable by up to a year in jail and not more than $1000 fine). Most people incorrectly believe that "resisting" refers to some sort of physical act. It does not. The police may charge you for Resisting Arrest without Violence even if you simply fail to obey an officer's lawful command. Some officers add on this charge when they arrest someone for Disorderly Conduct or Disorderly Intoxication as a way of strengthening the prosecutor's case against the person arrested. This is why it is so important to hire a criminal defense lawyer who can defend you against unfair allegations.

If you or a friend or family member were arrested for Resisting Arrest without Violence, regardless of whether the crime allegedly occurred in Melbourne, Palm Bay, Cocoa, Cocoa Beach, Merritt Island, Titusville, Rockledge, Cape Canaveral, Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, West Melbourne, Melbourne Village,  Melbourne Beach, Indialantic, Palm Shores, Grant-Valkaria, Mims, or anywhere else in Brevard County, Florida, Contact me to immediately schedule your free consultation.

★★★★★
I had the misfortune of requiring the services of an attorney for representation with a traffic citation. Jordan Kramer came highly recommended and lived up to that recommendation. Mr. Kramer was knowledgable and understanding. His office staff was friendly and his communication system was most efficient. Mr. Kramer saved me a considerable sum of money through his effective representation. B.E.
★★★★★
I would highly recommend Jordan Kramer. He played the angles well for my case, hands down. Jordan is very down to earth counselor and a wise attorney at law. He always kept me up to date with any new information about how my case was going. I hope I never need his professional, aggressive skills again, but if I do Mr. Kramer will be in my corner. C.R.
