Why Do I Need A Criminal Law Attorney?

When it comes to criminal matters, many clients try to talk themselves out of an illegal situation. They may also try to utilize the same lawyer who handles their family law affairs or estate planning. It is essential to seek an attorney who focuses on criminal law when you are facing serious charges like felonies and driving under the influence.

At Canan Law, our team has substantial experience with Florida criminal law, and we are first and foremost a litigation firm. We are willing to fight for you in court. Our attorney is board-certified in the specialty of criminal trial law; a certification that only 7 percent of Florida bar members hold in their specific area of focus.

Why You Need A Criminal Law Attorney

Utilizing a specialized criminal law attorney can benefit you in numerous ways, including but not limited to:

  • Clear explanations about your crime and the process you will go through, such as a jury trial.
  • Building your case by speaking to witnesses, gathering evidence and utilizing experts. We have a network of experts to help recreate crime scenes, analyze evidence and disprove claims.
  • Handling the proper paperwork and communicating with all other parties involved. Many prosecutor offices are not interested in speaking with the criminal defendant.
  • Keep things moving correctly toward the best outcome in court. Many times our lawyers can appear in court for you so you don't have to take time off of work.
  • Working to clear your reputation. This can be an immense help in avoiding losing your job or facing child custody and visitation issues.
  • Strategizing for minimal fines and sentences to keep you out of jail.
  • Vast understanding of Florida criminal law and nuances that may help your case. Civilians often do not know enough about the law to help prove their side of the case.
