Cases We Handle


Florida penalties for the first DUI range from the adjudication of guilt, 12 months of probation, a minimum of $500 fines, loss of driver's license for up to one year, and up to six months in jail, among other consequences.

Drug Crimes:

The state of Florida is harsh when it comes to drug cases. Possession charges are not something Florida takes lightly, as convictions can cause the DMV to suspend your driving privileges. Our drug case lawyers are experienced, compassionate, and determined to help you win your case.

Violent Crimes:

The most experienced prosecutors in Florida show up for violent crime cases. Whether it be manslaughter, battery, kidnapping, murder, or firearm enhancements, Onek & Mawn will defend you as the top violent crime lawyers in Melbourne.

Transmission of Child Pornography:

Along with a lifetime registry as a sex offender, which affects employment and housing options, prison time is also a possibility. Florida can crack down on child pornography cases harshly, and our child pornography lawyers assist in any case involving the subject matter.

Post-Conviction Relief and Criminal Appeals:

After a conviction, claims may occur for those who have entered a plea or were found guilty at trial. To bring more evidence against a case or raise additional issues, you must have experienced criminal appeals attorneys by your side. At Onek & Mawn, we offer jail visits.

Federal Criminal Defense:

The consequences of being investigated by the government are extreme and no matter to take lightly. Even speaking with a federal agent without a lawyer can bring serious repercussions. Being proactive and prepared is essential in these cases, and Onek & Mawn are the best federal defense attorneys at your disposal.
