Fighting For Rights In Miami

Whether you are facing misdemeanor or felony charges in Florida, it is crucial to have bold and aggressive legal representation. The consequences of a conviction can be severe, including imprisonment, fines, lengthy probation periods, the loss of many of your rights, including the right to own a gun or hold a professional license, and in many cases, immigration consequences like deportation. Additionally, the stigma of being accused of a crime can make it more difficult for you to find work or rent an apartment in the future.

Because going up against the State of Florida or the federal government can be daunting, we patiently guide our clients through every phase of a case, from the bond hearing, arraignment, pretrial discovery and all court appearances. Our objective is to win your case – whether that means an acquittal to secure your freedom after trial or aggressive pre-arraignment investigation and advocacy to avoid charges ever being filed in the first place.

Valiente, Carollo and McElligott PLLC routinely defends clients against a wide range of criminal offenses including DUI, drug crimes, theft crimes, violent crimes, gun/weapon-related offenses, sex crimes, kidnapping, juvenile crimes, and white collar crimes.

Our team will conduct a thorough investigation, identify and interview witnesses and all parties involved, including police, and seek out evidence of your innocence.
