Our Experience

Leifert & Leifert - Prosecutors

Judicial CircuitWhat are the advantages of being represented by a Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Lawyer and West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Attorney who are Former Prosecutors?

In order to answer the question, consider this issue: how can a criminal defense lawyer properly defend an allegation of criminal wrongdoing without a clear understanding of what is legally required by the prosecution? The truth is that it’s nearly impossible. Hiring a criminal defense lawyer with inside knowledge on only one side of the courtroom means risking your time, money and freedom.

Our seasoned criminal defense lawyers at the Law Offices of Leifert & Leifert have all worked for the other side, prosecuting felony, misdemeanor, DUI and traffic-related offenses. Our training and experience as former prosecutors in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade County has given us the ability to best analyze your case from all perspectives. We have found this to be an invaluable tool when representing our clients. Specifically, because of our background knowledge and experience in prosecuting the very types of criminal cases that we know defend, we know what strategies the prosecution will implement and how best to counter them.

Since completing our training as prosecutors in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach nearly two decades ago, as Florida Criminal Defense Lawyers, Florida DUI Defense Attorneys and Florida Traffic Ticket Defense Attorneys, we have dedicated our practice to representing individuals facing allegations of criminal wrongdoing and/or traffic infractions.

Our experienced Palm Beach and Broward County criminal defense lawyers at the Law Offices of Leifert & Leifert understand that any criminal allegation of illegal or unlawful activity (regardless of the merits of such accusations) can have a devastating effect on your reputation, your livelihood and overall well-being. It is crucial that any and all criminal cases be handled with extreme care and caution by an experienced Florida criminal defense attorney, such as one of our experienced lawyers. Each case needs to be carefully assessed to determine if it can be dismissed and removed from your record. If you are a first time offender, for instance, you may be eligible for outright dismissal and clearing of your record, but only a skilled attorney familiar with Florida criminal law and the State Statutes will be able to arrange a situation wherein your record can be cleared.

Even if you are not facing criminal charges, non-criminal traffic tickets can also have a harmful effect on your day-to-day life. If you need your car to get to and from work, to pick up your child from school and even to go to the grocery store, having a suspended license can seriously damage your ability to live your life. Moreover, without a skilled, experienced Florida traffic defense lawyer on your side, you’re far more likely to face additional “points” on your license, which can yield not only fines but also spiked insurance rates.

At Leifert & Leifert, we have a passion for what we do and we continue to be driven by helping people restore their reputations and return order to their lives. Our goal is to supply the very best legal representation available. We are regarded as aggressive, unbending attorneys when it comes to fighting for our clients. We never back down from a fight, and we have the experience necessary in successfully mounting a legal defense to counter even the most aggressive prosecutors. As former South Florida prosecutors, our attorneys know the strategies employed by the prosecution and we know what defense techniques work and which don’t.
