Tampa Criminal Lawyer

At The Law Office of Timothy Hessinger, our criminal defense team has the advantage that our lead attorney is a former state prosecutor.

Our trial attorney, Timothy Hessinger, served in the state prosecutor's office for a term of 15 years. This background has proven to be extremely valuable in defending those who are facing serious criminal charges. We know the strategies and tactics of the prosecutor; we carefully craft a defense case for each and every case we take on, with only one objective – winning for our clients.

He served as the lead attorney in an entire trial division, and served as a member of the Special Prosecution Unit at the State Attorney's Office.

When you want an attorney on your side that really knows the system and what can be done to fight back, you should contact our firm immediately.

Each case is carefully evaluated. Our defense team reviews every detail of every piece of evidence, every report, every witness and every part of the police procedure, from the police stop through to their actions in the arrest and the handling of evidence. We know how easily a case can go off the rails, and we seek out the best possible strategy for the defense, based upon our knowledge of how the prosecution will investigate, develop their case, and the best areas of challenge that we can exploit.

We know exactly how frightening it is to be arrested and charged with a serious crime. Avoiding jail or prison is usually the main concern. Whether you are accused of a misdemeanor offense such as a first time DUI, or are facing the most dangerous of charges such as murder or manslaughter, the quality and experience of your Tampa criminal attorney is the most important factor in your case. All of us that have worked within the system know that the development and presentation of a persuasive case for the defense can have a significant impact on the outcome of the case.
