Are ex detectives or prosecutors the best? The few I’ve called say they know all the judges and prosecutors. They may keep out of jail? Son trouble for girl sending pics for 3 His friends got public guys and all 3 confessed w lawyers there. All were charged adult court plead to year and day already it’s been a year pestered by detective after they were sentenced says gonna get 5x time unless talks. I just say busy & hang up last 6 mths. I didn’t get public officer lawyer (the best) because I own 5 van plumbing business. So maybe I hire ex detective to help w statement? No court yet though.I put this message in orlando & Miami Bc detective says he’s charging both places and gonna get meanest Judge at unless he talks. Bc girl moved & sent pics 14-18 year old nudes.

Other kids 4 mths left maybe...my son mad didn’t go w them. I asked Det. why friends promised probation sent prison? He said due to statute he’d use requires be honest. He’d put statute in writing the one can’t lie about punishment!
Clearly it sounds like a very serious matter. To retain an individual attorney, I would use an online search engine or ask for referrals from family and friends. Attorneys in this forum are not allowed to solicit. I wish you luck with your son’s matter.
The subject matter of the accusations are very serious! I would hire a qualified attorney as soon as possible. It’s best not to discuss the facts and circumstances online because there is no confidentiality.

Any lawyer worth their weight in this town knows all of the players (it's a big town but it 'aint that big) so when a lawyer starts telling you who they know and that their contacts will cause results then you'd best rethink engaging those people.
You should retain a lawyer based upon their skill and experience, not their alleged contacts (skilled and experienced lawyers do not rely on politics to do their job).
Skill and experience can be gauged by ratings, peer endorsements, client reviews, Bar discipline (or lack thereof) records, etc.
You should also rely upon your common sense and good judgment.
Wishing your family luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
It is best to meet with attorneys in person and then hire the one that you decide would be the best for you, the situation, and your family.
All criminal defense attorneys know the players, we have been doing this for a long time. If any attorney is making you promises or guarantees regarding the outcome of the case, RUN AWAY.
I wish you the best of luck.
