I was admitted to practice law in Florida in 1991, and served for several years as an Assistant State Attorney. In that position, I prosecuted thousands of cases, from the initial investigation to negotiations and trial.
Because of this experience, I know how the other side of the courtroom operates and how the prosecution may view your case. Additionally, I know when the prosecution’s case is weak and how to exploit those weaknesses.
The best defense is one that understands the other side. The knowledge I gained as a prosecutor allows me to be proactive and anticipate how opposing counsel may approach negotiations and trial.
Schedule a time to discuss your current situation directly with Mike G. He will listen to your unique situation, determine how he can help you, and offer legal recommendations based upon the information you have provided. If you decide to hire Mike G Law, we will obtain some basic information and get to work on your defense!
Not every police investigation or arrest results in formal charges filed by the State Attorney’s Office. Hiring an attorney before formal charges are filed can be crucial in obtaining a favorable outcome. Attorney involvement at this point in the criminal process can be an opportunity to potentially prevent prosecution and more importantly, avoid the impact that prosecution will have on your entire life.
If formal charges are filed, the next step in the process is for us to gather all discovery from the State Attorney’s Office. This may include but is not limited to: police reports, lab reports, witness statements, and any videos associated with the allegations against you. Once this information is received, a copy will be sent to you for your review and response. Then, if needed, we will schedule a meeting for you to discuss this information with your attorney and plan the course of your defense.
Depending on your case and exact situation, there are likely a variety of paths that can be taken. Mike G will discuss each of the options available to you such as charges dismissed (or Nolle Prosequi), pre-trial diversion program, reduced charges, plea negotiations, and/or taking your case to trial. Every case is unique, and the available options differ depending on each client’s specific circumstances.
