We never take a police officer’s word at face value. All too often, we find that law enforcement agents misrepresent the facts, exaggerate or even lie. By working tirelessly to uncover the truth, we are frequently able to achieve positive results for people facing life-altering criminal accusations. Our law firm defends people facing all types of allegations, including drug charges, white collar crime charges, accusations of violent crimes and drunk driving. Fighting for clients in state and federal courts across Florida, we are prepared to do battle in the defense of your rights.
The Sooner You Act, The More Options You Will Have
In the initial stages of any criminal investigation, the police and prosecutors typically have a slight initial advantage, as they are gathering evidence and building a case for prosecution. For this reason alone, if you believe the police are investigating you, it is critical to contact our attorneys. We will even the odds, taking steps to preserve evidence that is favorable to your case. Frequently, early intervention on our part may lead to charges never being filed. This can create untold peace of mind, while saving you the costs associated with a lengthy defense and possible trial.
If you have been arrested, we will take immediate action aimed at protecting your rights. Our Tampa criminal defense lawyers have more than 90 years of combined trial experience and will always be prepared to go to trial if we believe that is the best way to achieve a just outcome. Our lawyers have tried all types of cases, from relatively minor misdemeanor trials to complex, multidefendant, international criminal cases. Our experience is your advantage.
