Miami police and prosecutors are aggressive in taking action against locals and visitors who law enforcement believes have violated the law.  If you are accused of a crime, you could face prosecution and potential jail time, as well as a criminal record that could affect you for life. A Miami criminal defense attorney will work hard to get a not guilty verdict, to negotiate a plea deal, or to get the charges against you dropped.

Facing Criminal Charges in Miami

If you are arrested for any suspected criminal acts, you need to respond proactively and strategically to the charges. This can be a significant burden for residents, but an even bigger problem for tourists who may be charged with party crimes and who may have to return to the area to deal with their charges.

It is important for anyone charged with a crime in Miami to be represented by a local attorney with experience in the Miami court system. Katz & Phillips, P.A. has represented many clients throughout the Miami area facing charges for:

  • Drug crimes
  • Driving impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Reckless driving
  • Sex offenses
  • Domestic violence
  • Shoplifting, robbery or other theft
  • Assault and battery or other violent crimes
  • Juvenile offenses

Our attorneys will help you try to resolve your criminal charges in Miami with no record, and a not guilty verdict. If you don’t want to take your chances in court, we can help you to explore other options like pre-trial diversion or a plea agreement. We’ll help you understand your options and deal with the case effectively so you can put the incident behind you.

Do You Need a Miami Criminal Defense Attorney?

A Miami criminal defense attorney can help you in many important ways. Your attorney can review the evidence against you to look for ways to undermine the prosecutor’s case. If the prosecutor cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you violated the law, you should win your case and get to go home with no conviction. Your attorney can also talk to the prosecutor about reducing the charges or limiting the penalties if you agree to enter a guilty plea.

You have many important rights in the criminal justice system, including the right to be free from an illegal search. If police or prosecutors acted inappropriately in putting together the case against you, your attorney can find out and fight to get the illegal evidence suppressed and the charges dropped.

Handling a criminal case is complicated and if you don’t know the laws, you may not be your own best advocate. Let a legal professional stand up for you.
