We all make mistakes. And, we all deserve a second chance. But after an arrest, it can seem so hopeless, as our so-called justice system can be overwhelming to those not familiar with the process.Read More
Thousands of arrests each month. And every time a person is arrested and fingerprinted, a criminal record is created. A revelation, I know. Under Florida law this information is public record. Yes, everyone can see this–unless it is sealed or expunged.Read More
Driving under the influence is a mistake many people make and it has serious consequences. You may face a drivers license suspension, large fines, crazy interlock devices to start your car, or even a jail sentence. And, let’s not forget the insane car insurance rates for DUI convicts.Read More
As if being charged with a crime isn’t enough, our legislature has decided to pile on a ‘civil remedy’ in theft cases. For a person charged with Petit Theft or Grand Theft, this extra ‘fine’ typically comes in the form of a letter from a big law firm demanding a ‘settlement offer’ regarding your recent theft arrest.Read More

John really took ownership of my case and got it resolved very quickly. He kept me up to date with everything and he himself spoke to me and didn’t send an assistant to call like other people. I really appreciate you helping me with my driver’s license and highly recommend his services.

Attorney Guidry is THE REAL DEAL. His communication is impeccable and the results are undeniable. If ever I was not able to get a hold of him, he contacted me in a timely manner. I would recommended him on any day of the week and twice on a Sunday!
Thank you so much. You changed my life.

“I hired John to do my expungement for me on a petite theft charge. John was very professional , direct, and to the point. He was very comforting and let me know what needed to be done! He also gave me a very fair rate MUCH better priced than those in the area. Him and his assistant also sent me updates on how the case was going usually by email but if there was something I needed to do and hadn’t confirmed through email they’d call me too to help! I 100% recommend John’s Guidry!”
“After a long and exhaustive research, my daughter and I decided to hire John P. Guidry. I do not regret it at all. He is an excellent, professional, dedicated, honest, caring and very knowledgeable attorney. He took care of my daughter’s case and every time I called him, he answered the same day (even when he was on vacations). The results in court were the best, and now we are in peace and happy. My daughter is out of probation, she did not have to be incarcerated and now he will expunge her record. I will recommend him 100%. Thank you very much John for you valuable time and help!”
“I’m so very ecstatic that I hired John Guidry… he handled my case the same day and in only a few short weeks he cleared my license from a 5 year suspension! Best decision I’ve ever made… I highly recommend the law office of John Guidry for his professionalism and compassion.”
“From the moment I completed the online form John returned my call almost immediately. He carefully listened to all my case details and gave me an instant recommendation. I contracted his services and he walked me through the process with care and professionalism. John even attended court for me when I was out of town. He was a reliable source of information and always made the recommendations that were best for me. Thank you John for your excellent service.”
Sure, medical marijuana is now legal in Florida, but this hasn’t stop the police from arresting folks for possession of cannabis. Even legal prescription drugs like Xanax and Oxycodone often lead to an arrest when there’s no prescription bottle nearby. Possession of a controlled substance can lead to punishments as severe as prison, but even the mandatory one year driver’s license suspension can impose quite a hardship for most families. You heard that right–every drug conviction carries a one year mandatory driver’s license suspension. Yes, even simple misdemeanor possession of cannabis under 20 grams. I ask you, who can live in Central Florida without a valid DL? The good news is, there’s hope.
Most possession charges, maybe 92.45%, arise from traffic stops. And this may shock you, but not all traffic stops are legal. If the stop was illegal, your drug case gets dismissed. Its not quite that simple, but you get the point.
So, even if the police did everything right in your case (a point I rarely concede, but it happens), dismissal is still possible because we have great programs designed for dismissal. The Big 5 are Pretrial Intervention (PTI), Pretrial Diversion (PTD), County Diversion Programs (CDP), Veteran’s Court, and Drug Court.
In case you haven’t noticed, an arrest triggers our huge, expensive government machine to begin working against you. The police officers are against you. The prosecutors are against you. Sometimes even the Judge is against you. Relax. You’ve come to the right place. As an Orlando criminal lawyer, John Guidry will do everything possible to dismiss the charges, avoid or limit jail time. Yes, we will help you get your life back on track.
