The Importance of Experienced Defense
Miami is one of the most populous cities in the United States, with an estimated 2011 population of more than 408,000 residents. As is the case with most highly populated urban areas, crime levels in the area are generally higher than the national average. With increased crime rates, law enforcement and prosecuting attorneys employ increasingly aggressive tactics in investigating and prosecuting criminal defendants. If convicted, such criminal charges have long-standing and lasting effects that can follow you through your entire life. They will shadow you whether it is in your dealings with housing, employment, education or financing.
When faced with such a high stakes situation, there is no room to give yourself anything less than the best. You need a knowledgeable heavyweight to look after you and your future. If you or a loved one has been contacted by the Miami Police Department or by a Federal agency regarding an investigation or criminal offense of some kind, it is important that you understand your rights and your options in challenging any criminal charges you may potentially face.
Immediate, aggressive legal counsel may be your only opportunity of avoiding a criminal conviction and serious penalties. Miami criminal attorney Michael Mirer is standing by to use his knowledge, experience, and resources to defend your Constitutional rights and help you reach a positive case outcome.
Strong Advocacy for Criminal Cases
Our firm handles virtually any type of criminal case in the Miami area, including cases involving sex crimes,
Federal crimes and even
juvenile crimes. As you can see, we handle virtually every type of criminal offense that a person may be accused of, in State, Federal or Juvenile Court. Although this covers a broad range of crimes and some may seem relatively minor with lesser penalties that may be imposed upon a conviction, it is important to note that any crime may have a serious impact on a defendant's life. That is why our law firm is completely committed to only the highest quality criminal defense counsel to clients throughout Miami. When you work with a lawyer at our offices, we will utilize all of our knowledge and resources in the fight to protect your Constitutional rights and your interests to the fullest extent of the law.
After all, a criminal conviction may mean that you will face various penalties: driver's license suspension, a term in county jail, imprisonment in state prison, heavy fines, court fees, probation, community service, house arrest, mandatory counseling or rehabilitation, sex offender registration, the loss of professional licenses, the loss of the right to own a firearm, and more. And these are just the penalties that may be imposed upon a conviction. Having a criminal record is a whole different matter and may affect your employment, educational, financing and housing opportunities along with your reputation and career.
The Florida State Legislature has determined that the state's repeat offenders are subject to Florida sentencing enhancements. Under these guidelines, repeat offenders face the possibility of enhanced penalties. Our firm is here to explain the sentencing enhancements and how they may apply to your situation. We can also provide you with an aggressive defense when upholding your rights against the Florida criminal justice system.
Charged with drunk driving?
If you have been arrested for driving under the influence or alcohol or drugs, you may think that your case is hopeless. Rather than assuming that there are no options available to you, contact a Miami criminal lawyer from our team to see how we could help. We have extensive experience in handling DUI and
BUI (boating under the influence) cases. We understand the science behind these cases and have seen first-hand that many people can be falsely accused. Breath and blood tests and field sobriety tests are not always 100% accurate. However, they are often the only source of evidence against the defendant. We will thoroughly examine your case in an effort to determine if there was an error made in the administration or interpretation of your case. As the penalties can be severe (loss of driver's license and jail time) do not take any chances with your freedom and contact us today.
It is imperative that you contact a skilled criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. From the very beginning there are steps that can be taken towards getting you the best advantage in your pursuit of a successful outcome. After first facing the charges, it is important that you both remember and take advantage of your right to remain silent and your right to retain an attorney. By remaining silent, you are avoiding any possible chance of accidently incriminating yourself or submitting to an unwarranted search. At this point, it's in your best interest to get an experienced Miami criminal lawyer to stand at your side and fight for your rights.
