Tampa Internet Hacking Lawyers
Internet hacking may best be defined as unauthorized access to a computer, network or online account. Regardless of whether or not damage was done through the hacking, it is still a crime. It can also cost victims big money to repair systems and networks after the security breach.
In response to the increase and severity of hacking crimes, the government is now aggressively prosecuting those who commit these offenses. In addition, the state’s attorney may often tack on supplemental charges such as fraud, identity theft and even terrorism. This is why it is so important to work with a respected and skilled criminal defender if you have been accused of Internet hacking.

How We Respond To Illegally Obtained Evidence
Many times, especially in cases involving online criminal charges, investigators bypass laws in order to obtain evidence to use against you. As your legal counsel, our lawyers will not allow for this injustice. We have an in-depth knowledge of the laws surrounding evidence collection in this new world of online information. If we find your rights have been violated during the investigation, our lawyers will demand the evidence be thrown out.
Even when investigators have not violated your rights, prosecutors are often known for overcharging. Our lawyers take a proactive and aggressive approach to obtaining favorable results. Our main goal will always be a full dismissal, but when this is not a realistic option, we work to mitigate the most serious consequences of your Internet charges.
