YOU'VE BEEN ARRESTED. WHERE DO YOU TURN? CALL ME NOW.
There are very few lawyers in the on the West Coast of Florida with my level of experience. As prosecutor I was responsible for investigating, filing, litigating and trying criminal cases. Not just a handful over a couple of months — thousands of them over several years. So, What Does That Mean For You? It means that I know both sides of a case and have insight into the way you will be prosecuted. Knowing what the prosecutor will do next often gives the defense a powerful advantage, whether negotiating the best possible plea agreement or fighting for an acquittal in trial. Having worked with many law enforcement agencies allows me to understand how the police may be looking at you. I have helped thousands of clients resolve their criminal cases in a fair and timely manner. You will no doubt hear many criminal defense lawyers talk about their 'compassionate' approach to working with their clients. The way I see it, you don't need a friend right now; you need an aggressive, experienced lawyer who knows how high the stakes are and isn't afraid to stand up and fight to help you protect your rights and your future.
