Backed by 15 Years' Experience as a Former State Prosecutor Specialized in Criminal Defense

Helping Clients With Mental Health and Drug Addiction Issues

Often times, people find themselves navigating the criminal justice system because of undiagnosed or untreated mental illness. Many of those same people also have a history of drug and alcohol abuse that has been left untreated over time. At The Law Office of Timothy Hessinger, we are routinely retained by persons with both mental illness and addiction issues to stand behind them and vigorously represent their interests in the court rooms of Pinellas County. We recognize the unique challenges that confronting and overcoming mental illness and addiction present to our clients and are we thoroughly familiar with the community resources available to help make that happen. We also understand that the needs of each client are different and will work with them to tailor an individual approach to addressing the issues that are specific to them.

Successful treatment of mental illness and addiction not only addresses the source of a person's contact with the criminal justice system, it may also divert them from what would otherwise be a probationary, jail or prison sentence.

We recognize that punitive sentencing of persons with mental health and addiction problems does little or nothing to prevent future contact with the system and therefore emphasize, to both the State Attorney and the courts, our client's need for rehabilitation in bringing their cases to resolution. At The Law Office of Timothy Hessinger we have a wealth of written information on Florida drug treatment and mental health options.
