Our Lawyers are Here to Relieve Your Worries

At Barnett Woolums, P.A., we understand that it is highly stressful to deal with legal problems—particularly criminal and family matters.  Our lawyers strive to provide clients with the reassurance and peace of mind that comes from knowing they have experienced, dedicated and aggressive advocates working on their behalf.  Should you retain our firm, it is our goal, as your legal representatives, to get you through the difficult times you face and to resolve your issues with as little impact on your life as possible.

Time Is of the Essence When Contacting a Criminal Defense Lawyer

When you are being accused of committing a crime, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE.

Just because you have been arrested DOES NOT necessarily mean that you have been charged with a crime.  Nor does it mean that formal charges have to be filed against you.

To prevent charges from being filed, or to reduce the severity of any charges that are filed, it is CRITICAL that you have an experienced criminal defense attorney contact the prosecutor immediately after your arrest.

DO NOT WAIT until after you receive a notice to appear in court to contact us.  The outcome of your case may depend on how QUICKLY YOU ACT.

Quality Representation You Can Trust When You Need It the Most

Call (727) 525-0200 or visit our Contact Us page for more information on how we can help you.

Our main office is conveniently located near the downtown St. Petersburg Courthouse, the Criminal Justice Center in Clearwater, and the South County Traffic Court in St. Petersburg.

There is no fee for an initial consultation on criminal cases and the minimal fee for an initial family law consultation will be applied to your retainer.
