Victoria "Tori" Mussallem is a Jacksonville criminal defense attorney who has defended thousands of clients throughout her career and prosecuted none. Zero. Unlike former prosecutors, she has never worked a single day to send anyone to jail or prison. When your liberty is at stake, experience matters.

Police will say protecting the streets isn’t a 9-to-5 job. Neither is protecting your rights. If you or a loved one is arrested, you expect immediate response. And we’re here to give it to you: 24 hours a day, seven days a week. At the Mussallem Law Firm, we pride ourselves on our availability. Whether in person, by phone or by email, you will connect with our attorney, Victoria "Tori" Mussallem.

Our Jacksonville criminal defense attorney will meet you in our centrally-located Jacksonville office, at the jail or any place that is convenient for you. We do not charge for an initial consultation. We will be there when you need us the most – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Getting you or your loved one out of jail is always the first concern, and we’ll work to make that happen. At The Mussallem Law Firm, P.A., we know how many aspects of your life are riding on it: your freedom, your job, your money, your family and your future career options. When someone is first arrested, releasing and bonding procedures vary depending on the location. Within 24 hours, an arrestee must be brought before a judge to determine release. Duval County has first appearance court twice a day, every day. Clay, Nassau and St. Johns Counties have first appearance court once a day, first thing in the morning. The majority of arrests require a judge to determine whether to release someone on their own recognizance or to set a reasonable bond. It is important to have a criminal defense attorney represent you or a loved one at this very crucial stage in all criminal cases.

You need an experienced Jacksonville Criminal Attorney who has dedicated her entire career to defending people’s rights and knows the ins and outs of criminal law and what police can and cannot do when they arrest you. Call us anytime – we’ll be there to fight for you.
