Why You Need a Criminal Defense Attorney

Criminal charges are very serious matters that demand aggressive legal counsel from experienced attorneys. While many wrongfully accused of a crime believe their innocence is a strong enough defense, recent studies suggest that thousands of people may be wrongfully convicted in the United States every year. A criminal conviction can have lasting impact on an individual’s life, including a permanent criminal record that may restrict personal freedoms like the ability to work in certain careers, obtain loans and travel to foreign countries. It can also affect your immigration status if you are not a U.S. citizen.

Florida law comes down hard on those convicted of crimes. While this is meant to punish those who purposefully endanger the lives of others, it also greatly impacts those who inadvertently or unintentionally find themselves in questionable circumstances. For example, under the law, there is no difference between a 40-year old man who rapes a 16-year old girl and a 19-year old boy who has sex with his 16-year old girlfriend. In both circumstances, the male figure could be designated a “sexual predator” for the rest of his life. Hiring an attorney is essential in both cases. An attorney can fight to reduce your charges and work for the best possible outcome to your situation.

Those accused of crimes have rights that they may be unaware of. In the United States everyone has the right to legal counsel, the right to a speedy trial, the right to due process, the right to not incriminate yourself and the right to not be tried for the same crime twice. One of our experienced criminal lawyers in south Florida can help protect these rights and others guaranteed to you under the United States Constitution if you are facing criminal charges.
