What Are the Most Common Punishments for Crimes?
If you have been charged with a crime, you are likely facing fines and jail time. Fines and imprisonment are the most common punishments for crimes in the United States, but you can also lose important rights – like the right to privacy or the right to bear arms.
Attorney Michael Mirer not only aims to help clients avoid punishments whenever possible, but he also seeks alternative forms of punishment that focus on rehabilitation (when dismissing a case is not possible). If you have been charged with a DUI, for example, Mr. Mirer will try his best to get your charges thrown out. If this approach is unsuccessful, he can also help you avoid fines and jail time by focusing on rehabilitative justice and having you attend a court-ordered alcohol treatment program instead of serving a sentence in jail or prison.
Our Miami criminal defense lawyer focuses on finding the best outcome in every case. As a former prosecutor, Mr. Mirer is familiar with all types of punishment that appear in the criminal justice system, and he can help you navigate them. Protecting clients is our number one priority.
Do I Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Miami?
You have the right to an attorney for a reason. With a criminal defense attorney by your side, you will be better equipped to navigate the legal system and fight the charges against you. If you have been accused of a crime, your future and your freedom are at stake. For this reason, we strongly urge you to hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer near you.
Will My Case Go to Trial?
Anyone who is accused of a crime has the right to a trial by jury. You may need to go to trial to tell your side of the story, but criminal defense lawyers often resolve cases outside of court. No matter what, you are innocent until you are proven guilty.
Before we defend your rights in court, we will question the prosecution’s evidence and identify all the options you have for resolving your case. Our criminal defense attorney in Miami can help you get your charges dismissed, negotiate a plea deal, or defend your innocence in court. Mr. Mirer will give you relevant legal advice so you can make the best possible decisions for your unique case.
