Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Florida

Refusing to return security deposit. They are arguing unsatisfactory condition of the apartment, in addition to others lies. Despite having claimed my deposit on several occasions, I�ve received their first letter 57 days after moving date (in Florida, 30 day perior to impose a claim).

While some claims are word against word, I have pictures showing that they are lying about the apartment condition; I can prove that they are making a false statement about damages on a downstairs neighbor property as well, and they are contradicting themselves about the return of the keys. I think all this is proof that they are lying and acting in bad faith, which makes me wonder whether I�m entitled to claim any kind of compensation on top of my original deposit.
