About Me

John Musca, Esq.


 


Mr. Musca is a passionate, aggressive and nationally-renowned criminal defense attorney who represents clients on all criminal defense matters in the State of Florida.  He completed his undergraduate studies at Boston College, and graduated cum laude in 1994. He then went on to earn his law degree from Case Western University School of Law in 1997. Mr. Musca began his career representing the indigent as an Assistant Public Defender. Then, in 2001, he began his own practice, Musca Law, P.A, a firm which focuses exclusively in the area of criminal defense. He also speaks fluent Spanish, and is licensed to practice law in all state courts in the state of Florida.


 


Mr. Musca has handled all types of criminal matters, from misdemeanors through serious felonies.  He has extensive experience handling DUI cases, probation violations, theft crimes, drug charges, as well as fraud, battery, domestic disputes, sex crimes, and all violent crimes, including homicide and manslaughter.


 


Over the past 16 years, Mr. Musca has earned an impressive array of accolades. For the past four years, Mr. Musca has been recognized as one of the top 100 Trial Lawyers in Florida, by the National Trial Lawyers Association.  In addition, he enjoys a Perfect 10 rating with Avvo, an independent lawyer rating service, which formulates attorney ratings based on peer reviews, client testimonials and observance of the highest ethical standards of the legal profession. In 2012, he was deemed a “Super Lawyer”, a designation reserved only to the top 2.5% of all criminal defense attorneys in the State of Florida.  Mr. Musca’s firm also touts a solid A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau, the highest rating offered to a firm, on account of client satisfaction, longevity in the industry and maintaining the highest level of client service to those who have entrusted him with their legal matter.


 


In terms of DUI Defense, Attorney Musca has earned the special distinction of becoming certified in Breath Test Operation for having completed the curriculum set forth by the Department of Transportation. In addition, he is certified in Field Sobriety Tests, as a result of hours of instruction required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  These rare distinctions demonstrate Mr. Musca’s dedication of a substantial part of his career to representing clients on all types of DUI matters.  In fact, he has managed, evaluated and counseled on more than 5,000 DUI cases thusfar in his career.


 


For over 16 years, Attorney Musca has operated by the firm, yet simple principle that every person accused of crime is innocent until proven guilty, and entitled to a solid and aggressive defense.  While some pay only lip service to that philosophy, Attorney Musca insists that this serve as the hallmark and mission statement of his law firm.


 


Most importantly, Attorney Musca represents his clients with unflinching and tireless resolve, believing that the goal of representing a client on any criminal defense matter is a dismissal of their charge.  Indeed, Mr. Musca, and the lawyers who work under his auspices, make this mission their solemn vow, and dedicate all their efforts to achieving favorable outcomes on each and every case.  Undoubteldy, the finest testament to obtaining these results may be found in the hundreds of favorable case results and client testimonials which the firm has assembled over the years.


 


While some testimonials may be found under this AVVO profile, all of the firms' results and testimonials may found on their website: www.muscalaw.com.
