A criminal charge or arrest can have a devastating effect on your reputation, your family, and your ability to gain or keep employment. Having to deal with an arrest and/or criminal charge can also mean embarrassment, decreased chances of acceptance to schools, colleges and universities, and many other difficulties. A conviction can complicate things even further, making it much more difficult to rent property in the future, for example. If you are not a U.S. citizen, a criminal conviction may even get you deported from the United States.
When you are facing criminal charges, it is imperative to have an experienced Broward County criminal lawyer handle your case. Without such an attorney, you’re unlikely to be able to successfully fight the charges brought against you by the aggressive prosecutors who will be handling your case.
For nearly 50 combined years, the Broward County criminal attorneys at Leifert & Leifert have successfully defended clients in Broward County and throughout the state of Florida. All of our firm’s criminal defense lawyers have extensive experience as former Broward County prosecutors. Because we used to prosecute the very types of cases we now defend, we have a clear advantage in defending your case; we know the ins and outs of the criminal justice system and we have the experience to effectively defend your case. We know which strategies work and which don’t.
At the Law Offices of Leifert & Leifert, we understand the importance of keeping your record clear of a criminal conviction and we will work diligently and efficiently to get your criminal case dismissed or removed from your record. Many misdemeanor cases are eligible for dismissal through the Misdemeanor Diversion Program. Some felony cases are also eligible for diversionary programs such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Drug Court, which will result in the dismissal of charges upon successful completion of such programs. If these options are not available, our criminal attorneys in Broward County will try other means to get your charges dismissed or your sentence reduced (i.e. with an alternative such as probation).
If you have recently been arrested for or charged with a criminal offense in Broward County or elsewhere in South Florida, you’ll require – immediately – a qualified and experienced Broward County criminal attorney to defend your reputation and guide you through the often-complicated process that is involved in criminal justice procedures in the local court system. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Leifert & Leifert are highly experienced in handling a wide variety of criminal matters, including but not limited to DUIs, drug possession and trafficking charges, violation of probation, sex crimes, robbery, and shoplifting. We are dedicated to providing our clients with honest, aggressive and competent representation and we will do our utmost to fight for your constitutional rights by defending you aggressively in the court of law.
