Miranda Rights

You have rights when you are arrested, and you should exercise them.

  • You have the right to remain silent.
  • Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
  • You have the right to speak to an attorney.
  • You have the right to have an attorney present during questioning.
  • If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be provided for you.

Hiring a Defense Attorney vs. Working with a Public Defender

Public defenders often have heavy caseloads, which diminishes their ability to dive deeply into individual cases. Our Jacksonville Beach criminal defense attorneys pore over every detail of your case to provide you with a targeted defense strategy.

Serving Clients in Ponte Vedra Beach, Neptune Beach, and Atlantic Beach

  • Traffic Offenses
  • And more

    "We picked Porter and glad we did!!!"
    Jason and his firm came highly recommended by my family member. My son's case would have eventually ended up with negative consequences if not for Jonathan Thatcher. Jonathan was supportive, knowledgeable and kept us informed at all stages of the case. Great firm and appreciate all your hard work in the success of my son's case. I would use this firm again and again.

    "The Best I Could Imagine!!!"
    I used Jason Porters services after a bad roll over accident involving myself and my ALMOST 1 year old daughter when I lived in Jacksonville. Within 24 hours of contacting the office, I was seen by 2 physicians and my case was in full motion. My husband was deployed, and I was scared at first. However, Mr. Porter and his ENTIRE staff had me at immediate ease. I could email or call his assistant at any hour with any concern, and would have a response very quickly. I would highly recommend this office to anyone at any time. The compassion of the entire staff was more than I could have expected.

    "You really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind."
    Over the past month or so I had made a call to the Law offices of Jason Porter because I needed to resolve an issue that occurred over 7 years ago. Once I explained the situation the secretary sent me directly to Jonathan Thacher. All I can say is that Thacher did an amazing job handling my case and I am extremely happy right now. I no longer have to worry about that problem ever again thanks to Thacher. The work was effective and everything went through perfectly. Thank you so much man you really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind.
