Criminal Defense Lawyer | Florida

When you need a criminal defense lawyer in Florida, you want to make sure you hire someone with enough experience to properly represent you in court. At Flint Law Firm, Scott Flint is dedicated to preserving your constitutional rights, which is why he recommends you hire a lawyer as soon as the police attempt to question you. The best plan is to calmly ask the police officers if you can speak with your lawyer, and not agree to answer any of their questions. If you haven’t been arrested, but think you may be under investigation, immediately calling a lawyer can help immensely. The sooner you have an attorney, the sooner they can start protecting your rights.

Criminal Defense Frequently Asked Questions

As a criminal defense lawyer in Florida, Scott Flint is accustomed with the many questions a defendant may have about their case; here are some of the most common:

  1. I wasn’t read my Miranda Rights after arrest; this means the case can be dropped, right? Unlike what happens on television, it is not mandatory to be read your rights unless you are in police custody, and they are planning to interrogate you. Even if you were interrogated without being informed of your rights, the case wouldn’t be dismissed. At most, the prosecutors wouldn’t be able to use anything you said against you.
  2. I was offered a plea bargain and it sounds pretty good; should I take it? Depending on the facts of your specific case, it may actually be in your best interest to seek out a plea deal. However, this is not a decision to take lightly; you should always consult with a Florida criminal defense attorney before making a final decision.
  3. I’m just going to plead guilty, so there’s no need to hire a lawyer, right? If you are going to plead guilty, there will be several opportunities to negotiate sentences, and you most certainly want an experienced attorney on your side. Attempting to represent yourself can lead to you receiving a much more serious and far-reaching punishment.
  4. Do I need a lawyer even if my charges are minor? Yes. Even with misdemeanors, the consequences could follow you for a long time. Large or small, criminal convictions are a serious matter. You will be up against a team of highly experienced prosecutors; you want someone qualified fighting for you.
