Miami Criminal Lawyer for State & Federal Criminal Defense
If you are facing criminal charges in Miami or anywhere else in South Florida, you need an experienced Miami criminal lawyer on your side. Being prosecuted for a State or Federal crime is a frightening experience. This is especially true for a person who has never had contact with the criminal justice system. As practicing criminal defense lawyers, sometimes it’s easy to forget how traumatizing facing criminal charges can be from a client’s perspective. Although we are first and foremost defense attorneys, we are human beings as well and understand how stressful your situation can be.
Our law firm’s practice is exclusively limited to both State & Federal criminal defense in Miami, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, as well as other cities throughout the state of Florida. We have a strong emphasis on the trial phase of legal advocacy. We have defended a wide range of state and federal criminal cases in Miami, FL and multiple other jurisdictions throughout the State. The experience we have gained defending clients as trial lawyers, along with a personal commitment to the people we represent, combine to offer the prospective client competent representation in a supportive, hands-on environment. As criminal defense attorneys, our philosophy is grounded in the strong belief that our clients should be fully informed about every aspect of their case as it progresses and feel comfortable asking us to explain any legal issue they do not understand.
Whether you are a physician, attorney, professional athlete, entertainer, or other professional, a criminal conviction can devastate both your career and personal life. For professionals, even something as minor as a shoplifting charge can be a career ender, not to mention being charged with a white collar crime in federal criminal court. If you are being investigated or charged with a crime, you should be taking immediate steps to protect your rights, career, and reputation.
It is bad enough being arrested anywhere, but it is doubly traumatic for tourists. The distance from home, coupled with your lack of contacts in Miami, compounds the stress that accompanies being arrested or charged with a crime. Whether you came to South Florida for business or pleasure, being arrested and introduced to our criminal justice system certainly was not something you or your family anticipated. Being forced to hire a defense attorney in an unfamiliar place only adds to the stress.
Students, whether they are high school students, college students, or graduate students all have special concerns when facing criminal charges. Just being arrested can trigger a school disciplinary proceeding, affect the chances of admission to other schools, and affect future employment. A criminal conviction can even make you ineligible for student loans. You should take immediate steps to protect your rights and future career by retaining an experienced criminal defense attorney to defend you.
Non-United States Citizens have unique concerns when they are arrested or prosecuted for crimes. It is therefore extremely important that their attorneys not only understand criminal defense law but also understand how criminal offenses can potentially adversely affect a client’s immigration status. A disposition that may be perfectly acceptable for a U.S. Citizen in domestic violence, drug crimes, or petit theft case, for example, may have very serious consequences for a non-U.S. Citizen.
When you are arrested or charged with a crime, you suddenly find yourself thrust into a world you never imagined you would be a part of, and subjected to indignities you never thought you would experience. The stress of being the subject of a criminal investigation or the trauma of being arrested and booked into a filthy, overcrowded jail can truly be overwhelming. It will make you question the most basic assumptions about what kind of person you are.
The first three things that go through your mind:
1) How will this affect my job?
2) How will this affect my family?
3) How will this impact the opinion everyone has of me?
A criminal conviction can also impact your ability to rent a home or live in certain communities. If you are not a citizen, a criminal conviction can even get you deported.
