10 Things You Need to Know

  1. You are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
  2. You do not need to prove you are innocent; rather it is the State of Florida’s obligation to prove any charges against you.
  3. Law enforcement often fails to follow the law. As attorneys, we can find their mistakes and get cases dismissed.
  4. Your entire future depends on the outcome of this charge. You do not want to end up with a conviction on your record.
  5. Often lawyers use scare tactics and threats of prison time to get you to hire them. What you need are positive, well thought out strategies on how we can tackle the case and manage the results.
  6. If you have any prior run-in with the law, tell us. We need to discuss this with you as the outcome of your case may be more critical than if you had no prior charges.
  7. Often lawyers do not work hard for you. Not only will we work hard for you, we believe you will send us clients based on your great result.
  8. An arrest is an unpleasant experience, but there’s no reason to pile onto this negative experience with additional negativity. You need a positive, experienced advocate to fight for you rights.
  9. There is a big difference between a plea, a trial, or a pre-trial program. You need to know these differences. When you ask a lawyer to quote you a price, ask them to tell you what he is going to do for you.
  10. The most expensive lawyer is not the best lawyer. He is just the most expensive. You need a reasonable priced lawyer who cares about you not just about your money.
