Criminal Defense Attorney | Clearwater

As a Criminal Defense Attorney in Clearwater, Flint Law defends individuals charged with most crimes.  Here at Flint Law, we have experience in defending a myriad of criminal charges, including DUI, drug crimes, credit card fraud, racketeering, and many more.  We are committed to ensuring that you get a fair trial and receive the best possible outcome.

Why Is It Important to Hire a Lawyer?

Hiring a criminal defense attorney can increase the likelihood of a favorable outcome for you; he or she is specifically trained to understand the law and court processes.  If law enforcement shows up at your door, the first thing you want to do is call a lawyer; do not talk to the officers, even if they say it will help your case.  Many times, people believe that they can save money by defending themselves, but this will not save you in the long run.  When facing serious criminal charges, you want a professional and experienced lawyer on your side.

How it Works:

As your Clearwater criminal defense attorney, not only will we argue your case in court, but we will also do other tasks to help you get a fair trial or the best posible resolution. We will analyze all charges against you, interview all witnesses, examine the evidence and actions of law enforcement officers, conduct research, and lastly, take the case to trial if necessary. Sometimes people do not realize the amount of preparatory work that goes into getting ready for a trial; but here at Flint Law, we know exactly what needs to be done. 

Things to Keep In Mind:

There are many things you need to consider when choosing who will represent your case. Criminal charges can be far-reaching, severe, and can follow you for the rest of your life. When you choose a Clearwater criminal defense attorney, you want to make sure it is someone you are comfortable with, and who has experience with your type of case. 

If you meet with a prospective lawyer that makes light of your charges, or promises to make them disappear altogether, leave that office right away.  Criminal charges are always a big deal, and you do not want to trust your future with someone that does not take them seriously. Before you hire a lawyer, you will usually have an initial consultation.  This is when the lawyer decides whether to take your case. An important thing to remember that this consultation is also when you decide if you want to retain that lawyer. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the lawyer's experience and how he or she plans on handling your case.

Why Having an Attorney Will Help You:

Just as you wouldn’t trust someone that didn’t go to medical school to operate on you, you shouldn’t trust someone that didn’t go to law school to defend your case. No matter how much advice other people offer you, trust your lawyer above all else.

At Scott J. Flint, P.A., we will go over every aspect of your case, including:

  • Checking to make sure no procedural errors were made by law enforcement officers
  • Preparing pre-trial motions including motions to suppress, motions to dismiss, or motions to exclude statements or other evidence when appropriate
  • Finding expert witnesses to testify, if necessary, to explain scientific, medical, or other complex matters so a jury of laymen can understand the evidence

By using a Clearwater criminal defense attorney, you will also receive the benefit of having someone on your side that knows the local legal system very well. 

Hiring a qualified Clearwater criminal defense attorney is an extremely important decision, as it can affect you for the rest of your life. Choose a lawyer who will work hard for you from the very beginning to the very end.
