Florida Criminal Defense Attorney

Experienced Criminal Defense Trial Attorney
Always a defense attorney, NEVER a prosecutor
My practice is devoted to the defense of criminal cases throughout the state of Florida.
I have always been a criminal defense attorney. You need an attorney that will be on your side. I was never a prosecutor trying to put you in jail. I see many attorneys put their former prosecutor’s badge on their website. Wasn’t it someone with a badge that arrested you and put you in this unfortunate position? You need someone who has always believed in helping individuals accused of a crime.
Every criminal defense lawyer says they are an aggressive lawyer, but what does that mean? For me, it means an attorney that’s not afraid to speak up in court for you and not afraid to take a case to trial. It is important to know that your attorney has tried cases as a criminal defense attorney and not just as a prosecutor trying to put someone like you in jail. Ask your attorney the last time he tried a case as a criminal defense lawyer and how many he has tried recently. I have the experience and knowledge to handle and take your case to jury trial.
I make it a priority to keep you informed about your case. It is very important that you understand each step of the criminal process, what the law is regarding your case, and your options on how to proceed. As your criminal lawyer, I am committed not only to defending your freedom but also to keeping you in the loop about the status of your case. Being charged with a criminal offense can be a frightening and confusing experience. Many people have questions about their rights and the criminal process such as:
Know Your Rights:
- Did the police have to read me my rights?
- Were the police entitled to search me, my vehicle, or my house?
- Did I have the right to an attorney at the time I was questioned?
Understand the Criminal Process
- Is all of the State’s evidence admissible in court?
- Is there evidence that can be suppressed or thrown out?
- Can the charges be dismissed with the filing of an appropriate motion?
- What defenses do I have?
- Is a trial necessary?
Know the Penalties
- Am I facing a jail or prison sentence?
- Does the crime I am charged with carry a minimum prison or jail sentence?
As a criminal trial attorney, I can answer these important questions. My experience in dealing with the courts and prosecutors can help guide you through the criminal process. Do not leave the outcome to this serious charge to chance.

When facing criminal charges, it is vital to have adequate legal representation to ensure you are being treated fairly by the legal system. Your criminal defense attorney will act as you advocate in complex legal matters. They have the potential to get charges dropped and cases dismissed, or reduce sentencing through plea bargains and negotiations. Without a criminal defense attorney, you are left facing the prosecution alone and outmatched.
A quality criminal defense lawyer will help you navigate all aspects of the legal system as they relate to your criminal defense case. They will find the best methods to represent you in court, perform research into relevant laws, gather evidence in statements to be used in your defense, hire investigators, seek out expert witnesses, and create a comprehensive defense against the prosecution. Criminal defense lawyers can work with the prosecution to negotiate a plea bargain, or if you are found guilty, negotiate sentencing.
We handle a wide array of criminal defense cases, including felonies and misdemeanors. We handle all drug charges, DUIs, violations of probation, sex crimes, robberies, tresspassings, traffic crimes, and many other types of offenses.
