I am Gustavo E. Frances, a Fort Lauderdale attorney who represents people facing criminal charges. I also handle civil legal matters, like family law disputes and condominium law issues.
I graduated from Florida International University in Miami with a B.A. degree in criminal justice, and earned my law degree from St. Thomas University School of Law, in Miami, where I graduated with honors.
I worked as an assistant public defender for three years before starting my own law practice. During that time, I defended hundreds of defendants with cases ranging from misdemeanors to first-degree felonies. I became familiar with many of the prosecutors and judges, and I use my knowledge to help my clients make smart choices about their own legal situations.
I have never been a pencil pusher. I am a fighter, and I fight hard to help you get the best possible results in Florida courts. To learn more about my education and professional experience, please go to www.LauderdaleDefense.com.

Gustavo has been a friend and colleague of mine for a decade now. I have worked with him on both Criminal, and Family Law matters. He is an excellent trial lawyer, bright, aggressive, and experienced. I would be very happy to have Gustavo's representation on any legal matter, and would rest assured if he was arguing my case.
