        Question:

        Can I represent myself in a criminal case in Orlando?

        Answer:

        We’ve spoken to potential clients about this issue in the past. They’ve come to see me. We’ve talked about their arrest here in Orlando, Florida. Here in Orlando, Florida, it’s different. It’s the same judicial circuit. It’s the city of Orlando and it’s Kissimmee. Any time we have someone from those two areas, we advise them that, sure, you can represent yourself, but we think the better question is should you represent yourself. The tactics that are used by the prosecutors in both of those counties can really affect a person who’s involved, the person who’s charged.

        The person who is charged, they don’t know all the intricacies of the laws which can be numerous. The state of Florida is dictated by many laws that detail what the crimes are, what the specific sanctions are, and not only that, you have to be familiar with the actual defenses to any of those crimes, gathering of evidence, litigation protocols. At the end of the day, We would never recommend that a person who’s arrested in Orlando ever try to represent themselves. If you have any other questions about being arrested in Orlando or central Florida area, please contact our firm.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
