Criminal Defense Attorney Miami – Jeffrey Ivashuk
Have you been arrested and accused of a crime? A criminal charge will not just turn your life upside down, it could put your very freedom at stake. Being accused of a crime can be emotionally devastating for you, your family, and your reputation. In addition, if you’re convicted, that conviction will follow you for the rest of your life, affecting your ability to find employment, obtain housing, or even finance an education.
When you’re in this kind of trouble, you need the help of an experienced criminal defense lawyer, a lawyer who will fight for your rights aggressively and work to develop a skilled defense for you that will win your case in court, or get the charges dropped altogether. You need our help!
Miami is a city with a population of almost half a million, and in any kind of densely populated city like this the crime level is higher than the national average. This means that the police force and law authorities are even tougher on any kind of possible criminal case. Unfortunately, they may also be overburdened, which means that your rights could be compromised or the investigation rushed due to the sheer number of criminal cases that the Miami-Dade trial system must handle. You need immediate and vigorous legal counsel that will fight to protect your Constitutional rights, because in cities that have a huge volume of criminal cases, both law enforcement and prosecuting attorneys will investigate and prosecute what they think is a criminal charge more aggressively; they tend to “go after” a person charged with a crime from the standpoint of – “you’re guilty until proven innocent,” rather than the other way around. We believe that you are innocent until proven guilty, and you should be treated that way, and that’s the stand he’ll make and take in handling your defense.
