Coronavirus Update for Criminal Cases in Orange, Seminole & Osceola County

I hope everyone is staying well out there. Our office is still open, but due to the stay at home order currently in place, our criminal courts in Central Florida are mostly closed until May 29, 2020. Ninety-nine percent (99%) of all court dates for criminal cases have been reset, or will soon be reset once the clerk figures out how much longer this pandemic is going to last.

Your attorney can still get you into court during this shut down because Orange County, Seminole County, and Osceola County are permitting some hearings to move forward, under certain circumstances. For example, you can get hearing time before May 29th if you have a plea worked out on a case, or if you need an "essential hearing," like a bond hearing (unfortunately, a bond hearing on a VOP is not considered essential). In this video, we'll review what's happening in our local criminal courts. And, due to the nature of things, it probably goes without saying that all of this could change at any moment, so please call an attorney for up to the minute guidance.

Client Reviews
"I can not express better my gratitude to John Guidry. His customer service exceeded my expectations. He always listened to my needs and my case and he explained in details every options I have and the steps to take. He maintained full communication with me and answered to my calls in less than five minutes. It was worth every single penny. I highly recommend this lawyer." J.P.
"I spoke to a couple of attorney's before speaking to John and I knew right away he was the attorney I would hire. He is very professional and a very caring individual. He is up front about the cost of service, with no surprises. I am in my late 50's and was never in trouble with the law and he made me feel very comfortable and reassured me of a positive outcome.....which it was. I highly recommend The Law Firm of John Guidry II." M.C.
"John Guidry worked closely with my family over a trivial matter. However, he treated it like it was the only case on his plate. He was kind, patient, professional, and just an excellent person to have on our side. While we reached out to him over a year ago, we are still constantly in contact with him. He makes sure there is no question left unanswered and personally reaches out to you himself whenever he possibly can. Very grateful for you, John!" K.P.
