Criminal Defense

No case is too big or too small for us. We handle complex federal criminal defense cases, including firearms cases, drug cases, conspiracy cases, fraud cases, and more. We handle state felony cases, including grand theft, aggravated battery, DUI manslaughter, fraud, and more. Our criminal attorneys in Jacksonville handle state misdemeanor cases, including domestic battery, DUI, petit theft, and more. With the experience at Shorstein, Lasnetski, & Gihon, there is very little in criminal law that we haven’t seen.


If you or a loved one is facing deportation, our Orlando immigration lawyer can help. Attorney John Gihon has years of experience handling deportation cases. He helps clients obtain cancellation or removal, asylum, withholding of removal, waivers, and more. With an office near the Baker County Detention Center and an office near the Orlando Immigration Court, we are conveniently positioned to help those who are detained, as well.


Our attorneys can help you with your felony case. Whether it is a life, first degree, second degree, or third degree felony, we have the experience to make a difference. We’ve handled virtually every type of felony, including murder, burglary, sex offenses, grand theft, dealing in stolen property, felony DUI, firearms offenses, and more.


There are many different types of misdemeanors and many options available to those charged with misdemeanors. Give our Jacksonville criminal lawyers a call to discuss the options in your case. Whether it is a pretrial diversion program, a legal motion to dismiss or suppress, a lesser included offense, or some other possible outcome, we will thoroughly review all of the options with you. Call us for a free consultation on your case. We handle all misdemeanors, including domestic battery, dui, theft, and more.


A DUI arrest can have dramatic consequences. A DUI conviction can be even worse. There may be options if you have been charged with a DUI. We will look at your DUI case to review all of those potential options. There are few offenses that require law enforcement to comply with legal requirements more than in a DUI case. We often find unlawful stops, searches, seizures or arrests. There may be mitigation in your case that warrants a reduced charge. Call us for a free consultation on your DUI case.

Gun Cases

Gun cases often come with very serious consequences, so it is important to find an attorney experienced in this area. Our criminal attorneys in Jacksonville have decades of experience handling gun cases, including murder, attempted murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, carrying a concealed firearm, aggravated battery and more. It is important to understand forensics, fingerprints, DNA, self defense law and more when it comes to gun cases.

Green Cards

If you or a loved one wants to get a green card, we can help. We help clients get a green card based on their relationship with a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident, being the victim of a crime, being the victim of abuse by a United States citizen or lawful permanent resident immediate relative, because of fear of returning to their country and more. Immigration gets more complicated and complex every day. Schedule a consultation with us to get a better understanding of the green card process.


If you have been a lawful permanent resident for five years (or in three years, in some cases), you may be eligible to become a United States citizen. There may be issues that you need to discuss with an immigration lawyer before you apply. Do you have any criminal convictions? Have you been outside of the United States for an extended period of time? Are there any good moral character issues? We can help you understand what it takes to be approved for naturalization.

Personal Injury

With a history of personal injury practice at a respected Jacksonville personal injury firm, attorney Paul Shorstein personally handles our firm's personal injury cases. Whether you were involved in a traffic accident with injuries, a semi-truck accident, or injured in any other way due to someone's negligence, we can help. Insurance companies are in the business of limiting claims. In other words, their goal is to pay you as little as they possibly can.
