Why Retain Legal Counsel?

The American legal system is complex, difficult to understand, and impossible to navigate without a law degree and significant experience working in the system. I have seen countless individuals attempt to defend themselves. Without an adequate understanding of legal theory, court rules, and the rules of evidence, it is dangerous to go at it alone. You need help.

The Other Side is Prepared!

The state attorney offices in the state of Florida pay attorneys to be prepared and fight cases against you. They know the law and are legally trained. You need to have someone equally prepared on your side. Our legal system was designed with the intention that it would pit two equal sides against each other in court. Only then would equal justice prevail. However, if one side is not equally matched, rather than finding a middle ground, the outcome will be one-sided and there will be no justice. You need to be prepared.

I have seen countless individuals attempt to defend themselves. Without an adequate understanding of legal theory, court rules, and the rules of evidence, I have yet to see anyone win.
