Highly Experienced Florida Criminal Defense Attorney Fights for Your Rights

Determined lawyer represents people accused of crimes in the Lake County area and surrounding counties

If you face criminal charges you can be sure the Police and Prosecutors will bring their power to bear against you. That’s why you need an advocate to forcefully fight for your rights!  David F. Allen Attorney at Law LLC represents people throughout Florida who have been accused of committing crimes by providing an aggressive, results-oriented defense. After 40 years in practice, I know the Florida Criminal Justice system and I have the background and skill to take on the toughest cases. I have handled thousands of cases and hundreds of trials from Traffic Charges to the Death Penalty—and all charges in between. No matter what type of charge you face you can count on me to press for the best possible result through tireless advocacy. 

Persistent Florida Trial Lawyer challenges the charges against you


At David F. Allen Attorney at Law LLC I defend against charges ranging from minor offenses to the most serious felonies. Felony cases carry the most serious consequences and a conviction of a felony can result in probation up to life in prison. Although misdemeanors are less serious, a misdemeanor conviction can send you to jail and leave you with a record that follows you for the rest of your life. Remember, the Prosecutor must prove your guilt BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT!  That is the highest burden of proof in the law.

My firm represents clients charged with:

  • Violent crimes — I build self-defense arguments and other strong legal responses to charges such as murder, assault, rape and other violent crimes. If there is a trial, NOT GUILTY verdicts are the goal. 
  • Driving offenses — If you have been charged with DUI or driving with a suspended license I can challenge law enforcement’s procedures and test results to achieve the best outcome and save your license.
  • Drug violations — Charges of trafficking, distributing or possessing an illegal substance can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. My goal is to eliminate or minimize the charges against you by moving to exclude the evidence, achieve no prison time or a NOY GUILTY verdict.
  • Sex crimes — Sentences for sexual offenses can carry lifelong consequences. I will work to ensure that your side of the story is told and that your best chance for a NOT GUILTY verdict is pursued.
  • Theft — During negotiations with prosecutors and in Court, I skillfully respond to larceny, robbery and other theft charges. Trial is always an option if you have viable defenses. 
  • Sealing and/or Expunging Criminal Records – eligibility requires a Withhold of Adjudication of Guilt—a technical term.  Read your Court papers to see if Adjudication was withheld.

Tenacious law firm presses for dismissals, exoneration or a fair plea bargain

Through each step of your case, I will strongly challenge the prosecution’s evidence to disprove their case. You can count on me to do everything in my power to obtain the best possible result under the facts, whether that’s a dismissal of the charges, NOT GUILTY at trial, or a minimum sentence through a plea agreement. I know that witnesses and cops can lie, crime scenes can be tampered with and police officers can make mistakes. To build your defense, I will carefully examine records and documents for vulnerabilities. I may also personally speak with witnesses and examine the alleged crime scene. When the circumstances call for it, we can bring in experts to challenge the prosecution’s theories. Nothing is more important than your freedom. When you need a defense attorney who is dedicated to your case, David F. Allen will be by your side.
