Miami Criminal Lawyer

If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, you need aggressive representation from skilled and knowledgeable criminal defense lawyers who will act fast to protect your rights and build a strong defense geared toward obtaining the best outcome possible. Mycki Ratzan and Jude Faccidomo have decades of experience providing compassionate, aggressive criminal defense to people from all walks of life charged with state and federal crimes in Miami, Florida courts.  The Miami criminal lawyers at Ratzan & Faccidomo have earned a reputation in the legal community for their excellent trial skills and have garnered the respect of judges, prosecutors and the other lawyers of the criminal defense bar. That reputation and respect, combined with a strong work ethic and always being thoroughly prepared at every stage, enable us to get the best results for our clients in each situation, whether through trial or plea negotiations.

We work hard to prepare a defense and provide advice and representation that is focused on your particular needs. Our practice generally falls into one of three main areas:

Comprehensive Criminal Defense – We represent clients in both state and federal court who are charged with drug crimes, including possession and trafficking; shoplifting and theft crimes; assault and violent crimes; white collar crimes; sex crimes; DUI and more.

Professional License Defense – Our defense of lawyers and other professionals includes representation in disciplinary hearings and license revocation hearings. A criminal arrest or conviction can call into question a licensed professional’s fitness to continue practicing their profession; we fight for our clients’ rights to continue their livelihood in their chosen profession. If you are facing administrative or disciplinary action, you need a strong advocate on your side. All too often independent agencies play it fast and loose with their own rules and are only focused on damaging or terminating the employment or license of a dedicated professional. Proper and aggressive representation is required to ensure that the rules are adhered to and your rights are protected.

College Student Defense – Our criminal defense practice concentrates heavily in the defense of college students accused of DUI, sex crimes, possession of narcotics, shoplifting, assault and other offenses. A criminal conviction can derail a young person’s bright future; we fight to get them the second chance they deserve.

Florida & Federal Crime Lawyers

The dedicated Miami criminal defense lawyers at Ratzan & Faccidomo, LLC handle many different types of criminal defense matters.  We regularly assist people accused in state and federal court of all criminal defense issues.  No matter the level of severity of the crime, we can help to prepare your defense.  The types of cases we routinely handle include but are not limited to:

To be sure, our attorneys are particularly skilled in the representation of lawyers and other professionals facing disciplinary proceedings, and in the specific nuances that apply to the defense of college students.

Success Statistics of Criminal Defense Lawyers

When you hire a criminal defense lawyer, what will your money buy you?  It’s important to know that the dedicated lawyers at Ratzan & Faccidomo, LLC can help to ensure that you have the best possible defense throughout each stage of your case.

According to a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice, more defendants who are incarcerated after a criminal conviction did not hire their own lawyers.  Indeed, both federal and state criminal laws are quite complex, but Mycki and Jude have decades of experience navigating the complicated criminal justice system.  We know how to prepare a successful defense for people who have been charged with many different offenses, ranging from DUIs, to white collar crimes such as tax fraud, and all the way up to violent crimes like first degree murder.  We believe that every person deserves to have a dedicated and knowledgeable defense lawyer on his or her side when facing serious criminal charges.

Wrongly Accused Clients and the Value of a Miami Criminal Defense Lawyer

In Florida, recent crackdowns on drug crimes, financial crimes, and other criminal offenses have resulted in many defendants being wrongly accused of these serious acts.  For example, when newspapers like the Miami Herald refer to our city as a Medicare fraud “hot spot,” it encourages law enforcement officers and prosecutors to come up with arrests and convictions.  In the process, however, many innocent Florida residents face unjust white collar crime charges.

And it’s not just financial crimes that are considered rampant in Florida.  Indeed, our state has some of the most stringent laws surrounding sex crimes.  Particularly when it comes to solicitation of a minor or possession of child pornography, law enforcement in Florida has arrested many innocent people.  New technologies have provided many benefits, but they’ve also resulted in Miami residents facing charges for Internet photographs that they’ve unknowingly downloaded, among other offenses.

Florida residents who have been accused of crimes deserve to be represented by compassionate and skilled defense lawyers.  Facing any criminal offense or investigation can have potentially life-changing consequences.  You already know that a criminal conviction can mean jail time, heavy fines, and damage to your reputation.  At the same time, however, the ramifications of even a simple accusation such as shoplifting can go far beyond that.  If not handled properly, criminal convictions and even mere accusations can result in:

Additionally, if you are not a United States citizen, even if you are here lawfully, a seemingly insignificant offense can have severe immigration consequences.  Indeed, a criminal charge can lead to your deportation in certain circumstances.  The Miami criminal lawyers at Ratzan & Faccidomo, LLC work to shield you from the adverse effects of an arrest or conviction, and we strive to achieve the best outcome possible in your particular situation.

Aggressive Criminal Defense Lawyers with a Record of Success

At Ratzan & Faccidomo, LLC, we are a result-oriented defense firm with a focus on specialized client attention.  Mycki and Jude are both well respected, experienced, and aggressive Miami criminal defense lawyers with a reputation for devoting 100 percent of their skill and talent to each and every case.

Our goal is to handle your criminal matter effectively and quickly so that you can put the ordeal behind you and move on with your life.  The lawyers at Ratzan & Faccidomo, LLC pride themselves on understanding that your case is troubling not only to you, but to your family as well.  While a favorable end result in your case ultimately is the most important goal, Mycki and Jude recognize that much of the anxiety associated with criminal offenses stems from not knowing what will happen next.  Your defense team will take all the time required to ensure that you are as informed and involved in the process as you wish to be.  We are here to help you and your family navigate the system and to fight aggressively to protect your interests.
