What Does a Miami Gardens Criminal Defense Attorney Do For You?

A Miami Gardens criminal defense attorney is your advocate at each step of the process as your case goes through the criminal justice system. Your attorney will:

  • Be there during a police interrogation to advise you on when to stay silent.
  • Explain your Fifth Amendment rights to you.
  • Help identify if any illegal searches took place and, if so, petition the court to prevent the improperly-obtained evidence from being presented.
  • Argue for bail at your arraignment so you can be released pending trial.
  • Help you decide how to plead.
  • Talk to prosecutors about your option for a plea bargain.
  • Investigate the charges against you to try to find ways to introduce doubt about the case the prosecutor is trying to prove.
  • Find witnesses and put together a strategic plan for defenses to raise in court

Every criminal case is different, and the right approach to your charges is going to depend upon the nature of the offense and the kind of evidence the prosecutor has against you. The goal of a criminal defense lawyer is to help you make the right choices that will minimize penalties or allow you to avoid being found guilty.
