Criminal Defense FAQs

When you’re facing a serious criminal charge, you must speak with a defense attorney as soon as possible. Prosecutors may be looking to “make an example” of your crimes – and they can also use anything that you say against you in court. During your complimentary 30-minute consultation, our seasoned attorneys will help you understand your legal options and answer your main questions about the legal process. We’ve also compiled some answers to frequently asked questions below.

What Are My Rights When Arrested?

When you’ve been arrested, it’s important to keep a calm and level head. Under the Constitution, you have the right to remain silent from the moment you are arrested, including during police questioning. You also have the right to have legal counsel present during questioning, and once you have contacted your lawyer, you should not volunteer any further information without their guidance.

Can I Clean Up My Criminal Record?

After a conviction, it is often possible to either appeal the verdict or to have the record sealed and expunged later on after your sentence. However, all of these processes can be incredibly difficult and require the counsel of an experienced attorney. In general, it’s best to avoid a conviction in the first place.

Am I Allowed to Represent Myself?

Yes, you are allowed to represent yourself in a criminal matter. However, it is hardly ever recommended, even for practicing lawyers. The procedures involved in Florida criminal cases are extremely complicated – and you will also be facing trained prosecutors who have years of experience looking for any weaknesses in your case.
