Practice area
  1. Criminal defense
    My practice consists exclusively of criminal cases in both the state and federal courts. I represent clients at the trial level, on direct appeals, and in post-conviction proceedings.

    42 years, 2,500 cases

I have been practicing criminal law since 1982, when I began my career as an Assistant Public Defender in Miami, Florida. During that time, I have represented close to 2500 clients and have done over 150 jury trials and written over 250 appellate briefs. In 2003, the Florida Bar certified me as a criminal trial specialist. In 2007, James Publishing released my book, Florida Criminal Trial Procedure. I enjoy what I do and look forward to speaking to you about your criminal issues.

Superb Lawyer
I hired Clayton to represent me in a federal case, with the odds stacked against me, he was able to have all the charges dropped. I couldn't have hired a better lawyer.
