Hiring an experienced Miami false arrest attorney can increase your chances of receiving fair compensation for your false arrest. Over the years, our law firm has represented multiple clients who were falsely accused of shoplifting, theft, or other crimes. In petit theft and shoplifting cases, the false arrest is usually due to overzealous yet inexperienced loss prevention officers. We have been able to obtain significant settlements from major department stores and supermarkets on behalf of some of our clients.
Falsely Accused of Shoplifting or Other Crimes
Usually, but not always, the client comes to us because they have either been arrested or given a notice to appear in court. In other words, they have been criminally charged with a theft crime or some other offense. In these cases, the disposition of the criminal case becomes extremely important. If you plead guilty, no contest, or lose at trial, you will have little chance of being compensated for your false arrest. That is why it is so important to involve an attorney from the very beginning of your case to make sure your rights are protected. By retaining an attorney immediately, you will not only increase the chances of a favorable outcome in your criminal case but also lay the groundwork for the possibility of financial compensation for the damages you suffered. These damages can include damage to your reputation, physical injury, loss of income, emotional suffering, as well as reasonable and necessary expenses you incurred (e.g., lawyer fees).
Because of our experience as criminal defense lawyers, we are uniquely positioned to increase your chances of a successful monetary recovery. This is primarily due to the rights afforded to you in criminal court when you are accused of a crime. One of the most important is your right to “discovery.” Discovery is simply the evidence that exists in the case, whether it be police reports, witness statements, loss prevention reports, video surveillance, photographs, and depositions. By aggressively investigating, documenting and analyzing the evidence we are sometimes able to not only convince the prosecutor to drop the criminal case, but also discover persuasive evidence of innocence. Possessing this key evidence can often time influence opposing party in a civil case to negotiate a financial settlement instead of fighting the case in court.
