    Building Your Criminal Defense Case 

    It is our job as your criminal defense lawyers to do everything in our power to reduce or dismiss charges, when possible. From the moment that you first call us, we will work tirelessly to prepare a vigorous defense on your behalf. We will begin by gathering the facts of your case and reviewing your Arrest Affidavit to determine your options. Even if you have already been arrested for a crime, you may still be able to avoid charges altogether, in certain circumstances. We carefully look for deficiencies in the prosecution’s case and inconsistencies among witness statements that may prevent the State from filing charges. 

    If your case does go to trial, you will be represented by attorneys with a proven record of success, and you can be sure that we will provide you with the level of dedication and aggressive representation that we give all our clients.

          What to Do If You Are Arrested in West Palm Beach

          When you are under investigation for a crime, it is important to know that all your actions are being observed and potentially recorded, including your interactions with law enforcement, so it is essential that you do not do anything during an arrest that may call your defense into question. 

          Here are some suggestions for interacting with law enforcement

          • Always treat officers with respect
          • Never speak with officers about anything relating to the investigation
          • Never voluntarily give consent or permission to search you or your vehicle without proper legal support
          • Gather as much information as possible by documenting the incident, taking pictures, and asking witnesses for their names and telephone numbers
          • Always consult an experienced criminal defense attorney who will be committed to your case
