Former Prosecutor. Orlando Native. Exclusively Criminal Defense. Call or email to schedule a consultation, (407) 274-7501, [email protected], http://www.sethhymanlaw.com:
I am a native Orlandoan whose family first put down roots here 40 years ago. Back then, Orlando was still a small town mostly surrounded by orange groves, a place where neighbors knew each other by name and kids played with their friends in the neighborhood or on the school playground shooting hoops. I had the privilege of attending Lake Sybelia Elementary, Maitland Middle, and Edgewater High School and served this community as an Assistant State Attorney for Orange County. As a prosecutor, I was named one of the top government/non-profit attorney's in Florida by the leading business publication Florida Trend Magazine.
When I was a prosecutor in Orange County, my goal was to pursue justice for the public and now as a criminal defense attorney, my only pursuit is justice for the accused. I am committed exclusively to the practice of criminal law so my clients know that all of my knowledge, experience, and passion is devoted to fighting for their freedom. One of the most important benefits of having an attorney is being able to reach them every time you have a question. I charge a flat fee so whether you have one question, or a million questions, I am available 24/7 to give you answers and some peace of mind during this difficult time.
I earned my law degree in San Francisco, CA at Golden Gate School of Law, studying under the legendary civil rights lawyer and Philadelphia Assistant Public Defender, Bernie Segal. Prior to law school I graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor of Science in Communications. Now I am a criminal defense practitioner advocating for the rights of those accused of crimes throughout Central Florida. My prior experience as an Assistant State Attorney has given me insight into how the prosecution will view the case and relationships to facilitate the negotiation of plea agreements that are beneficial to my clients. When negotiation isn't getting anywhere, I know when it's time to go to trial!
