Miami Kidnapping Attorney
Criminal Defense Lawyer Serving Miami and South Florida
Kidnapping is a felony offense in Florida and may be designated a Federal crime as well. If you or someone you know has been accused of kidnapping or of any other violent crime, it is important that you talk to a Miami criminal defense lawyer about your legal rights and your options.
It is your Constitutional right to retain legal counsel if you are arrested and/or are facing criminal charges. You have the right to remain silent and to the counsel of a qualified attorney, and taking full advantage of this right may make a significant impact on the outcome of your case. If you try to cooperate with law enforcement and talk to them about your kidnapping charges, you may unintentionally incriminate yourself, saying or doing something that law enforcement or the prosecuting attorney may use against you at a later date.
