Criminal Defense

Have you had a recent run-in with the law?
Do you have a criminal record you would like to leave behind you?

If you have recently been arrested for a misdemeanor in Miami Dade or Broward, we can help! Clients who are looking to expunge past crimes from their record can also benefit from our knowledge and expertise.

At Markowitz, PA, we offer all clients the following legal representation and services:

Deportation Defense

Can be minor, but you could be facing up to 364 days in a county jail or hefty fines of up to $2500. We work with you to help you understand the difference between a Class A, Class B, and Class C misdemeanor and what it means for your future. Appointing a lawyer with experience working misdemeanor cases in this area can greatly help your chances of receiving a minimal charge, if any.

Domestic Violence Accusations

These are serious charges that typically include assault and carry a misdemeanor charge. However, that can be increased to a felony in certain circumstances. For example, DV in the presence of a child or as a recurring charge will be regarded more severely. We help our clients to fully understand their situation so we can present possible defense options.

Juvenile Cases

Can be very delicate and should be revered with the utmost care and attention. Whenever a minor is facing criminal charges, it is crucial to appoint adequate representation so they can help ensure they fully understand the proceedings and what they are being charged with.

Theft Crimes

Such as shoplifting, grand theft auto, and grand larceny can all carry hefty charges that can greatly affect your future. In Florida, items under $500 may be punishable by up to 1 year of jail time. If the allegedly stolen goods are more valuable, you may be facing a felony charge and years of incarceration.

Reduction of Probation

This can help individuals who are currently on or facing probation. Probation can be extremely limiting and require lots of time and money simply to prove your innocence. Our attorneys can review your case to determine if the punishment is just and, if so, how it can be reduced in your favor.

Sealing and Expunging Records

This is one of our specialties and can be a great option for individuals who have turned their life around and want to close the door on their past mistakes. Unfortunately, a criminal record can often stop you from certain things, such as some career choices. Sealing or expunging your criminal record can help you move forward.

Our process is simple, we always review your information and answer any questions you may have regarding your recent arrest or criminal record. Our goal is work closely with each one of our clients to ensure that you fully understand the gravity of the situation and all the options you have. Our years of experience in defending clients against a slew of criminal charges has helped us gained the knowledge needed to support you every step of the way.
