State of Florida vs. “R.M.”

Our client was facing four different charges. These included armed robbery with a firearm, armed sexual battery with a firearm, and two counts of accessory after the fact. He was facing a life sentence for two of the four charges. Our founding attorney, Antonio F. Valiente, Esq., aggressively fought for our client’s rights in front of a jury trial. We used effective legal strategies and extensive preparation for the case. In the end, we were able to obtain a not guilty verdict on all counts. The verdict was delivered on February 16, 2018.

Client is a medical doctor accused of conspiring with her office manager to commit insurance fraud. She was facing up to 30 years in prison as well as losing her license to practice medicine. After extensive investigatory work and pre-trial motions we were able to resolve the case to a minor second degree misdemeanor, no jail time, no fines, and perhaps as important as everything else, no effect on our client's medical license or her ability to earn her living.


State of Florida vs. “A.K.”

Charges: Armed Robbery with a Firearm - First Degree Felony Punishable by Life.

DUI resulting in a crash/property damage. Client failed the field sobriety tests; had broken beer bottles in her car; and smelled of alcohol.
