We Handle All Criminal Cases

Your liberty and your even your life may be on the line when you’ve been arrested in Florida, not to mention your job, your pocketbook and your standing in the community. You have too much to lose to risk getting anything better than the best defense available. At the O’Mara Law Group, we’re known as top-notch Orlando criminal lawyers, ready to take on the biggest, hardest cases and get you the best outcome possible. From charges of DUI to murder, sex crimes to white collar crime, you know we’ll fight for you with the knowledge, skills and ability of a Board-Certified specialist in criminal law with over 35 years as an Orlando criminal lawyer and a county criminal prosecutor before that.

Drug Charge

If you have been charged with drug possession in Central Florida, the Orlando drug defense lawyers can help. The O’Mara Law Group has been defending clients against drug charges since 1982 and we are committed to achieving the best possible result in your drug charge case.

Money Laundering

In recent years, government agencies, such as the FBI, have been placing more emphasis on combating money laundering. Not only are more money laundering charges being brought forward against individuals, more resources are being deployed to achieve convictions in these cases. If you are facing charges of money laundering, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.

DUI

If you have been charged with a DUI, our Orlando drunk driving defense lawyers can help. Since 1982, The O’Mara Law Group has stood up for the rights of people throughout Central Florida. We are committed to keeping your record clean, and he is committed to getting you results.

Mortgage Fraud

In recent years, instances of mortgage fraud and appraisal fraud have become more common in Orlando. As a result, the government has become much more active in prosecuting these white-collar crimes, actively pursuing investors, brokers, straw buyers and others involved in mortgage fraud schemes.

Embezzlement

One of the most serious accusations an employer can level against an employee is employee theft, known as embezzlement. Embezzlement is a fraud charge that is aggressively prosecuted as a felony, with a conviction possibly resulting in jail time, restitution and irreparable damage to career prospects.

Murder Defense

If you have been arrested and face a murder charge or a homicide charge, you need a law firm who will stand with you and work diligently to protect your life. The O’Mara Law Group is ready to take on your murder defense case.

Fraud

A successful defense against white-collar crimes, such as fraud, must differ strategically from a defense against other types of criminal charges, such as drug possession or murder. The O’Mara Law Group believes that these cases require a sophisticated legal strategy that is able to match the complexity of the issues involved.

Prescription Drug Charges

With state and federal law enforcement increasingly cracking down on the illegal possession of prescription drugs, it is critical that you have an experienced law firm on your side if you are facing charges of unlawful prescription drug possession. You can rely on the O’Mara Law Group to work diligently to protect your rights.

Healthcare Fraud Defense

With so many government agencies and corporations potentially involved in the case, a successful healthcare fraud defense requires a sophisticated legal strategy. These are complex cases that should be handled with hard work and diligent preparation. When you choose Orlando healthcare fraud attorney, Mark O’Mara, to handle your case, the team will make every effort to protect you against the impact of healthcare fraud charges.

Sex Crimes

Sex crime charges are easily the most destructive charges that can be made against anyone. Even when falsely accused, the stigma associated with these charges can damage your reputation, hurt your employment prospects and change relationships forever. If you have been arrested or are under investigation for a sex crime, you need an experienced Orlando sex crimes defense lawyer on your side.

Internet Crimes

As times change, so do the crimes that people are accused of. A criminal defense lawyer has to stay updated as the law changes to address new crimes and the technology used to commit those crimes. Throughout more than 35 years of practicing law, the O’Mara Law Group has been dedicated to staying on the edge of important legal developments. We have sorted through the most complex criminal matters to get fair and just results for our clients.

Theft

Property crimes, such as burglary, automobile theft and shoplifting are among the most common criminal charges. However, common does not mean it is not serious.
