Fleites, P.A. defends state criminal cases throughout the State of Florida and Federal cases nationwide. Our firm provides aggressive, in-it-to-win criminal defense. The stakes are high — a criminal record versus a clean record, jail time versus freedom, and consequences for your family, your job, your driver's license, possibility of deportation and other aspects of your life long afterward.
Dealing with a criminal charge can be a very intimidating experience. The legal system is complex and confusing. We all know that you are supposed to be "presumed innocent until proven guilty." Unfortunately, the reality is that our criminal justice system puts the accused at a serious disadvantage. Juries are often inclined to presume guilt, and Prosecutors have the benefit of your tax dollars to build and present a strong case against you. In fact, the Prosecution's case has started before you even have an opportunity to start your defense. Time is of the essence when your life is concerned. Our Criminal defense lawyers give you the advantage.
Our only area of practice is Criminal defense. Having obtained extensive legal and courtroom experience while working for the Prosecution, and the Court, our attorneys are now prepared to utilize their trial skills and legal acumen to defend your case in all aspects. We have extensive trial experience defending individuals against criminal charges such as:
and many more.
A single arrest can change your entire life, it is very important to choose the right criminal defense attorney to defend you in the court of law. Before you decide to hire an attorney, be sure to ask him how often he goes to trial as opposed to accepting the State’s plea offer. Our attorneys are aggressive and trial active. We are not afraid of taking your case to trial to achieve the best outcome possible for our clients.
We begin working immediately. Whether you have been arrested or are still under investigation, we will work to minimize your exposure and reduce or eliminate the charges that you are facing. After an arrest, the Prosecution meets with its officers and witnesses to determine what, if any charges to formally file against you. This generally happens within the first 21 days after an arrest. It is crucial to have a criminal defense attorney during this time to intervene on your behalf. It is possible and effective to provide the Prosecution with witnesses, affidavits, alibis and defenses that you may have at this early stage. This often results in lesser charges being filed or your case being dismissed altogether. It is crucial that you speak to a qualified criminal defense attorney as early as possible to provide you the greatest chance for a favorable outcome.
We are committed to providing our clients with an honest and zealous representation, along with regular communication. We are committed to providing each client with a written retainer agreement, specifically describing the services to be performed, and the exact expense anticipated.
