Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Lawyer

Encounters with law enforcement can be extremely harrowing experiences. Whether people believe they are being investigated for a criminal offense or they have been arrested for allegedly committing a crime, there is immediate confusion and anxiety about how to avoid harsh penalties that may include significant fines and lengthy terms of incarceration.

It is important to keep in mind that all alleged offenders in Florida are presumed innocent until proven guilty. This means that a defendant is not required to prove his or her innocence. Rather, the prosecutor must prove the alleged offender’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

If you or your loved one is arrested for the alleged commission of any kind of criminal offense in the Sunshine State, it is critical that you exercise your right to remain silent. Take advantage of your right under the United States Constitution to have the assistance of legal counsel.

I found myself in an unfortunate situation. A fried gave me evan' s personal number and we spoke for over an hour. I felt so reassured and grateful for his time. Needless to say I write this review with great pleasure. A call to thank evan would not be justified as I want anyone who ever finds themselves in my situation to know who to call. Thank you evan I cannot say enough good things about you. Edwin

I was arrested wrongfully and the police would not listen to my story. Evan contacted the state attorney and got all the charges dismissed. I was in danger of losing my job but thankfully Evan and his staff did am amazing job.
