Practice Areas

Before any act or failure to act can be considered a criminal offense, it must specifically be prohibited in the criminal statutes. People in the Palm Beach County area may be accused of breaking both Federal law or Florida law. State and federal law provide for a broad range of crimes, ranging from those related to controlled substances to crimes protecting public safety to those protecting property.

When the government accuses a person of committing a crime, a person’s liberty is at stake. The Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution includes important safeguards to protect the accused from injustice, including the right against unreasonable searches and seizures, the right to a jury trial, the right to a speedy trial, the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney, who can advocate for you and make sure your rights are protected.
