Former Assistant State Attorney in Miami-Dade County.
Let me put my knowledge, training and experience to work for you.
I know how the State of Florida intends to build a case against you, and I know exactly what to do to make it as difficult as possible for them to prove the charges against you beyond a reasonable doubt.
Don't wait until formal charges are filed to contact me. While you wait over these next 21 days or so, the State of Florida is methodically building a case -- witness by witness -- against you.
During this "pre-file investigation" period, my office will get involved and will present arguments to influence the State of Florida's filing decision...and this will give you the best shot at a dismissal of the charges (a "No Action"), a "Nolle Prosse", or lesser (or reduced) charge -- which may significantly decrease your exposure to incarceration, probation, and/or fines.
