Criminal Defense

Florida Criminal Defense Attorney

When facing criminal charges, an arrest, or an investigation by law enforcement, in immediate intervention and representation by an experienced criminal defense attorney may be invaluable. As a skilled trial lawyer and with extensive experience in criminal defense representation, Robert G. Whittel is here to offer you the dedicated legal counsel you need in the face of your legal matter.

Criminal defense is an extremely important field of law. Without the right to an attorney and the ability to build a defense against criminal allegations or charges of any kind, a defendant would stand little to no chance at being treated fairly in court. Innocent men and women would be convicted of crimes they may have had nothing to do with, and law enforcement would use any means to make an arrest, gather evidence, and seek a conviction. Criminal defense attorneys serve to balance the legal system by ensuring that their clients’ Constitutional rights are protected to the fullest extent of the law. Even in the most serious of cases and in situations where a conviction seems inevitable, an attorney can utilize aggressive legal strategies to clear a defendant’s name.

For example, what if a man accused of assault had actually been acting in self-defense or had been trying to protect his family or his property? What if a driver accused of DUI actually had a blood alcohol level that was below the legal limit, but a faulty breath test showed a false result? What if a woman accused of shoplifting accidentally walked out of a store with merchandise? It is a criminal defense lawyer’s job to determine exactly how to approach a case in order to offer a defendant the opportunity at the best possible result.
