Defense Against Disorderly Conduct Allegations

Have you or a loved one been charged with disorderly conduct in Florida? Disorderly conduct — also known as breach of the peace — is a broadly written concept that includes any number of alleged public malfeasances. It is often used as a weapon by the government to charge people with something when there is nothing else to charge them with.

Often, people charged with disorderly conduct don’t even know why they are facing these charges — and indeed, there may be no good, or lawful, reason for the charges. To find out exactly why the charges were brought, you may wish to consult with an experienced disorderly conduct attorney as soon as possible.

Freedom Of Speech vs. Disorderly Conduct

The line between freedom of speech and disorderly conduct can be blurry. Prosecutors and police will err on the side of infringing your rights by charging you when it may not be strictly necessary. Sometimes, simply asking a police officer a question can be misconstrued by the officer as a showing of disrespect — which can lead to disorderly conduct charges.

At The Law Offices of Elaine E. Lukic, I am an attorney who can fight these charges against you — charges which are punishable by up to 12 months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine. I can defend you against all types of disorderly conduct charges, including those allegedly involving:

  • Public arguments
  • Nonviolent encounters with the police
  • Public intoxication
  • Loitering
  • Fighting or physical altercations
  • Obstructing traffic
  • Loud noise
  • Use of extreme or abusive language
  • A disturbance of the peace

A Lawyer Who Will Defend Your Rights

To protect your rights, you need a skilled criminal defense lawyer who will fight for your rights and your freedom. For 20 years, I have been defending the rights of people charged with criminal offenses. I can defend your rights, too, and employ such defenses as:

  • Self-defense
  • First Amendment right to freedom of speech
  • The alleged act did not occur in a public place
