When you are a professional, a criminal conviction can devastate both your career and personal life. For doctors, athletes, celebrities, and other professionals, even something as minor as a shoplifting charge can be a career-ender. If you are being investigated or charged with a crime, you should take immediate steps to protect your rights, career, and reputation.
It is bad enough to be arrested, but it is doubly traumatic for tourists. Whether you came to South Florida for business or pleasure, being arrested certainly was not something you or your family anticipated. In addition to the obvious logistical complications of being detained in a strange city, state, or country, being forced to hire a defense attorney in an unfamiliar place only adds to the stress. We understand your situation and can help you resolve your case—frequently without you having to return to Miami for future court hearings.
Whether they are high school, college, or graduate students, all have unique concerns when facing criminal charges. Just being arrested can trigger a school disciplinary proceeding, affect the chances of admission to other schools and negatively impact future employment. A criminal conviction can also make you ineligible for student loans. You should take immediate steps to protect your rights and future career by retaining an experienced crime lawyer to defend you.
