How do I choose a Miami criminal defense lawyer?
There are certain qualifications that you can review to help you make a decision about who will defend you. These include the experience of the attorney, record of positive verdicts, background, and ratings. When choosing a criminal lawyer, you want trial experience, and surprisingly, not all criminal lawyers have it. Some prefer to seek a plea deal and negotiate with the prosecutor rather than work the long hours that are necessary to craft a defense case that can win.
Look for case results. At Seltzer Mayberg, LLC, we have an uncommon level of experience at trial, as our founding attorney has a background serving as a Miami-Dade prosecutor, prosecuting serious misdemeanor and felony cases. He cut his teeth on the tough cases, and has turned his talent to defending the criminally accused. Find out more about us and our experience before you make a decision about defense counsel.

What should I do if I am arrested?
The first issue, whether you are arrested for DUI, a theft crime, drug crime or violent crime, is to exercise your right to remain silent, and your right to an attorney. If you are questioned about a criminal case, whether you have the impression that you are just providing information, being helpful can seriously backfire on you. Your statements, demeanor, and even your body language could later be used against you, and if you are charged with a serious crime, this is almost a certainty. If you exhibit a calm demeanor in a violent crime case, you could be accused of being "emotionless." If you are highly emotional, you could be accused of faking emotion. There is literally no advantage to cooperating with the authorities in a criminal case. If you have been arrested, your first action should be to get a criminal attorney on your side. Your Miami lawyer will carefully defend you, including managing the issues surrounding answering questions by investigators.
