Expert Advice From Skilled St. Petersburg Personal Injury Lawyers and Criminal Defense Lawyers

From car accidents to defective products to medical mistakes, we handle a wide range of personal injury cases. If you have suffered an injury at the hands of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

  • Car accidents

Car Accident Injuries

We pursue maximum compensation from insurance companies if you are injured by a negligent driver. We deal with even the most complex accident claims involving multiple vehicles, passengers, and insurance policies.

Property owners are responsible for maintaining safe conditions. If you slip and fall, get attacked, or are otherwise injured on someone else’s premises, we can help you recover damages.

No patient should be harmed by a doctor’s carelessness. We handle surgical errors, misdiagnosis, lack of informed consent, and other forms of medical negligence.

If a defective product injures you, the manufacturer can be held financially responsible. We deal with defective automobiles, medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and other products.

Building a Strong Case

Over the years, we have recovered millions of dollars for injury victims through settlements, arbitration awards, and jury verdicts.

Our thorough approach starts with investigating how the accident happened. We independently gather evidence, take witness statements, consult with experts, and build the strongest possible case.

We work on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases. This means no attorney fees unless we obtain compensation for you. If we don’t win, you pay nothing.

Criminal Defense Cases

Facing criminal charges can be frightening. The prospect of steep fines, years behind bars, and a permanent criminal record is not one to take lightly. Whether you are under investigation or have already been arrested, time is of the essence in building an effective defense.

We are top St. Petersburg criminal defense lawyers, and our criminal defense team is here to protect your rights every step of the way.

  • Drug crimes
  • DUI and BUI
  • Theft crimes
  • Violent crimes
  • White collar crimes
  • Sex offenses
  • Traffic violations
  • Juvenile crimes

We represent clients against a wide range of charges:

Drug Crimes

Marijuana possession, trafficking, distribution, manufacturing, and other drug offenses. We defend your rights in light of changing state laws.


Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. We handle license suspension hearings and work to keep your record clear.

Theft Crimes

Shoplifting, embezzlement, burglary, robbery, and property crimes. We aim to keep you out of jail.

Violent Crimes

Homicide, assault, domestic violence, and sex crimes. Our top priority is avoiding severe sentencing.

White Collar Crimes

We can represent you if you are accused of fraud, cyber crimes, or financial offenses.

Sex Offenses

Solicitation, prostitution, indecent exposure. We fight to avoid sex offender registration.

Traffic Violations

Speeding tickets, reckless driving, license suspension. We work to prevent increased insurance rates.

Juvenile Crimes

Crimes committed by minors under the age of 18. We protect their futures from permanent damage.

Examining the Evidence

Our defense starts with examining the quality of the evidence being used against you. Police misconduct such as improper searches, false confessions, misleading eyewitness identifications, and more can be grounds for evidence dismissal.

We leave no stone unturned in investigating your case and uncovering every possible defense strategy.

Plea Bargaining and Going to Trial

Going to trial is not always the best option in criminal cases. We regularly negotiate favorable plea bargains, pretrial diversions, and deferred prosecutions to protect our clients’ futures.

If charges cannot be dismissed, we work relentlessly to minimize penalties and avoid jail time through alternative sentencing. For eligible cases, we pursue record expungement after the fact to clear charges from background checks.

Legal Fees

At Miksis Law, we typically work on a contingency fee basis for personal injury and certain criminal defense cases. Contingency fees empower accident victims and criminal defendants to pursue justice without worrying about hourly rates and legal bills.
