Florida Criminal Defense Attorneys
Aggressive & Unyielding Representation
Criminal law is the field of law that relates to harm to people or property. The Florida legislature and the court system have established varying levels of punishment for criminal offenses, ranging from monetary penalties to life in prison. For the most serious crimes, such as homicide, the state of Florida reserves the death penalty.
People commit crimes for many different reasons. There are crimes of passion, where emotions overcome someone and they commit an act that they would not otherwise do. Some people commit crimes recklessly. This means that they do not recognize that they are endangering other people or their property. Finally, there is crime with intent. When someone plans to commit a crime, even if they have not done it, they have violated the law.
If you have been charged with a crime, you need a competent and aggressive criminal defense attorney in Florida. The Berman Law Group is here to help. We routinely represent Floridians throughout the state who have been accused of criminal actions.

What You Need to Know about Criminal Law
If you have been accused of violating the law, the prosecution has the burden of proof. That means that the authorities must prove that you have done something wrong. There is a concept called reasonable doubt. If there is reason to doubt that the prosecution conclusively proved you committed a crime, then you cannot be found guilty. In the court of criminal law, it is important to remember that you have rights. You are protected by the Constitution. Authorities may not search your belongings without a warrant. They must not compromise your health and safety when they interrogate you.
Police, law enforcement, and prosecutors might violate your rights. If they do so, you may be able to fight the prosecution’s case more effectively. When it looks like the evidence is stacked against you, there is still a way to win the case. A jury of your peers decides whether or not you are guilty. A good lawyer can show them how to interpret the facts and the evidence of your case. There is more to criminal law than guilty and not guilty. Sometimes, a dismissal or reduction is possible, which is why we try to fight for that from the start. If a dismissal or reduction is not an option, we can negotiate with prosecutors concerning a settlement or a possible reduction in the sentence.
