When you are facing a serious legal issue, it can cause immense stress and uncertainty in your life. Whether you’ve been charged with a crime or are dealing with a family conflict, you need a qualified attorney by your side to make sure your rights are being protected.
Based in Crestview, FL, The Law Offices of T. Martin Knopes provides quality legal services to clients throughout Okaloosa County in the areas of criminal defense and family law.
I’m Marty Knopes and have been practicing criminal and family law for 25 years. As an attorney, my first priority is to advocate for my clients’ best interests and vigorously work to achieve the most favorable outcome possible. No two cases are alike, and that’s why I take the time to learn about your specific goals so I can develop an effective strategy tailored to your needs.
Criminal charges, even minor ones, can have a devastating impact on your life. Florida has some of the harshest punishments for convictions in the country. In fact, the State’s Attorney’s office is now seeking jail time for those who have no prior criminal records. Beyond the threat of incarceration, you may be subject to substantial fines, probation, license suspension, and more.
Having previously worked as an Assistant State Attorney, I have a complete understanding on what it takes to assess both the strengths and the weaknesses of your case through the lens of both a defense lawyer and a prosecutor. Pleading cases out is absolutely not my first choice — to be clear, I will always consider all other possibilities before even entertaining the thought of any plea agreements.
