Jay Kirschner is a Florida Supreme Court Board Certified Criminal Trial Lawyer, and perhaps just as importantly, has been Board Certified in Criminal Trial Practice since 1994, and has actively defended criminal cases for over twenty (20) years.
In Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie, Stuart and Vero Beach, Criminal lawyers know "DUI's", "Drug Possession", "Drug Trafficking", "Prescription Fraud", "Unjust Battery", and "Internet Crime" cases dominate the headlines. If you are charged with these or any other crimes, you must find the most talented, experienced team of legal professionals to obtain optimum results.
In addition to retaining a talented, experienced and properly credentialed lawyer, successfully defending a criminal case in 2009 and beyond, mandates an experienced support staff, working in tandem with the lawyer as a team, and in conjunction with experts from a variety of fields.
The practice of criminal law has evolved into discreet and specialized areas, including DUI, Internet Crime, Drug Possession and asportation cases, embezzlement, homicide, etc., -----with the developing tendency of Florida's legislature to criminalize all manner of proscribed conduct--- the list grows longer each year. Criminal cases routinely require astute counsel to assemble a winning defense team, which may include Physicians, Psychologists, Accountants, Laboratory Analysts, Arson Investigators---- this list expands each year as well. Knowing , and being able to access, the right experts and consultants, and being able to work effectively with them, can and does make the difference between winning and losing your case.

Dunn, Staff Assistant to Jay Kirschner, who specializes in client relations, coordinating and scheduling with judicial assistants, co-counsel and opposing counsel and their staffs, as well as legal research and writing. Ms. Dunn has been working with Mr. Kirschner for over fifteen (15) years.
Bradley Perron has been working in close association with Jay Kirschner for over fifteen (15) years. He is a Florida Licensed Private Investigator, and has testified as a court qualified expert in a number of fields, including 'blood spatter' testimony.... in sum, the kind of investigator/expert who may well prove indispensible in building a winning defense team. He is part of the talented, innovative, and experienced team of investigators at Investigative Support Specialist, Inc.,(www.brandonperronpi.com ) an Investigative firm with demonstrated excellence, as well as a national reputation.
Robert McCarron, M.D., is the firm's consultant for medically related issues, which arise in both criminal and family matters on a frequent basis. His individual practice, in Vero Beach, Florida (in Indian River County----the northernmost county in the 'Treasure Coast') specializes in the practice of Internal Medicine. He also is well schooled in medical and scientific forensic issues, and has access to talented members of the medical and scientific communites.
B.J. Dunn manages the office, and is also in the process of obtaining her Florida Licensed Private Investigator license.
