Between our criminal lawyers, we have 30 years of combined criminal defense experience, and many of our seasoned attorneys have served as former Public Defenders and Prosecuting attorneys. As such, we are extremely familiar with the procedures, inclinations, and personalities of the State Attorneys, Judges and Court staff who work in the Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, Deerfield Beach, and Plantation Courthouses where we have represented our clients for years. Of course, we use that familiarity to our clients' advantage as we strive to reach a favorable resolution.
Every experienced criminal attorney in South Florida will agree: it is important that anyone facing criminal charges in Florida consult with an experienced criminal attorney immediately. With our reasonable criminal defense legal fees and easy payment arrangements, we can prepare your criminal defense immediately with a free consultation and a small down payment. We can be there to counsel you, visit you in the local Sheriff's Jail, console your loved ones and keep them informed of all developments, begin our criminal investigation, take down information from witnesses while they are still fresh, and collect and review criminal evidence. Hiring us as your criminal lawyer immediately allows us to begin negotiating with the criminal prosecutors of the State Attorney's Office, with the goal of dismissing or reducing the number and severity of potential criminal charges PRIOR TO the formal filing of the Criminal Complaint against you (the Information or Criminal Indictment). As your first consultation is free, we suggest that you phone us immediately, engage in a free criminal lawyer consultation, and investigate the type of advice and assistance that we can offer. Often, quickly recruiting the help of a local South Florida criminal attorney may result in the criminal charges being promptly dismissed entirely, or reduced in their severity.
We tap into our vast criminal court experience, our knowledge of Florida criminal law and Florida Rules of Criminal procedures, along with our criminal trial history in order to comfortably and completely defend serious criminal charges, ranging from Murder, Aggravated Assault, Felony Battery, Domestic Violence, Sexual crimes, Armed Robbery, Grand Theft, Larceny, and Fraud to less serious misdemeanor charges of Carrying a Concealed Weapon, Domestic Violence, Battery, Assault, Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or DWLS (driving with a suspended, expired or revoked license).
Felonies, many of which are serious and potentially punishable by long-term prison sentences, and Misdemeanor crimes, with potential punishments of jail-time or the suspension of your driving license privileges, can have long-term, detrimental consequences on your entire life and lifetime earning capacity. If not handled properly by an experienced Florida criminal lawyer, these crimes will likely have life-long consequences for your employability, residence options, and a humiliating presence on the internet, with your records being within access just mere seconds after people enter your name on any search site. These consequences must be addressed, and we are available to check your eligibility for sealing your criminal record or expunging your arrest history and criminal record.
You should consult with one of our experienced South Florida criminal defense lawyers as soon as you hear that you may be under investigation by the Police or any criminal investigating agency, or have been arrested. We are available 24/7 for a free phone consultation after you are arrested, and we will immediately offer advice and suggestions as to how the matter should be handled, as it is imperative that the matter be properly defended by you and by your South Florida criminal attorney as soon as possible. We can arrange bail through a reliable Bondsman referral, and be there at your Magistrate's Hearing at the Criminal Court to represent you and request your prompt release from jail, as well as the reduction or complete elimination of your Bond (ROR).
Once your criminal case is resolved, and if you get a reduced Probation sentence, we can help with the South Florida DOC, do a Motion for Early Termination of Probation, deal with modifications of probation conditions or Florida DOC Parole, or defend you on Violations of Probation, if that problem should arise. After your Florida criminal case is closed, we can also help seal your criminal record or expunge your Florida criminal arrests. We can also help you remove derogatory information and mugshot photographs from the internet after we complete the sealing or expungement of your criminal arrest records.
