Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Attorney
Criminal charges can dramatically impact your life in many ways, from criminal penalties to the social penalties associated with a criminal record. Whether misdemeanors or felonies, these charges can threaten your job, reputation, family stability, freedom, and your financial security. If you are convicted, a permanent criminal record can affect your ability to keep your job, advance your career, or even find future work, depending on the circumstances. A criminal record can make you ineligible to rent an apartment, seek advanced education, or qualify for a professional license in your career of choice. You may be disqualified from owning a gun or voting in an election.
Because of the high stakes, it is essential that you have trusted and aggressive legal representation. At The McFarlane Firm, our Fort Lauderdale criminal defense lawyer is backed by years of experience. Our firm will leave no stone unturned in investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest and the state’s evidence against you. We will work to build a solid legal strategy designed to give you the best chance of a favorable outcome. That may involve a plea bargain with reduced charges, reduced sentencing, a diversion program, an acquittal in court or, through early intervention, dropped charges altogether. Each case is unique and we will construct the best strategy for you based on the facts. Throughout it all, we will be by your side giving you the counsel and support you need.
