Every client is unique, and the law was meant to be flexible. I believe in being innovative and in using extraordinary strategies to achieve desired results.
At Redavid Law, quality of service is matched only by results.

If you or a loved one are facing investigation or have been arrested, be prepared with the knowledge of what to expect in a criminal case.
When police become aware of a suspected crime, it is up to them to determine whether the crime occurred and whether anyone should be arrested.
The investigation begins when police are informed of suspected criminal activity.
Police collect physical evidence, interview witnesses, conduct searches and identify suspects.
You may be arrested if police uncover evidence that provides probable cause for an arrest.
During an arrest, you will either be taken into custody or directed in writing to appear in court on a specific date. The manner of arrest depends on the severity of the charge.
If you are taken to jail, you may be: released with no charges filed, released on bail or held without bail awaiting arraignment. If you are arrested, talk to an attorney before saying anything to the police.
You can stop an interrogation at any time, even if you have already waived your right to remain silent. You do not have to agree to anything during interrogation, like taking lesser charges in exchange for talking.
When police interview you, they are trying to to get you to confess. And they can lie to get you to do so. Your lawyer can help beat their tricks.
At the arraignment you are formally told of charges, informed of your rights and given a chance to respond to charges by entering a plea of Not Guilty, Guilty or No Contest. With few exceptions, you should plead Not Guilty, demand any discovery in the prosecutor’s possession, and request a trial by jury. This will reset the case and give your attorney time to prepare a defense.
A plea of not guilty means you claim you did not commit the crime. A plea of guilty means you admit to committing the crime, and a conviction is entered into the record at the arraignment. A plea of no contest means you do not plead guilty but do not disagree with the charge.
The arraignment is the first time you will be asked to appear in court. It is procedural, not a trial.
Bail, or pre-trial release, is usually determined within 48 hours of your arrest; at your first appearance before a judge. Your attorney can help argue for the lowest possible bail and help you decided the best time to post bail.
The purpose of this hearing is limited; guilt or innocence is not at issue. The judge can consider your past criminal record, the nature of the allegations, the strength of evidence, potential danger to the community, and risk of flight versus your constitutional presumption or entitlement to a reasonable bail. You might be held with no bond, granted a monetary bond, pre-trial release program, or released on your own recognizance (ROR’d).
For the defense, discovery can involve acquiring police reports, taking depositions, receiving documents from opposing counsel, including evidence the prosecution plans to introduce at trial, and receiving drug or alcohol test results.
Discovery is the pre-trial period when a case is investigated and the parties involved trade information. This is your attorney’s chance to find out about the prosecution’s case.
A pre-trial period occurs after an arraignment but before the start of a criminal trial.
In pre-trial, your attorney will prepare for trial, attempt to prevent a trial, or attempt to secure certain advantages at trial. This can include filing motions to cancel or dismiss charges, filing motions to prevent evidence from being used at trial, challenging the admissibility of evidence and legal research.
Much of the work of a case occurs during the pre-trial period. Some cases are resolved during this period, although this should only occur if not going to trial is in the best interest of the defendant.
A plea bargain is an agreement in which the prosecutor agrees to drop a charge (or charges), reduce a charge or recommend a lesser sentence in exchange for a plea of Guilty or No Contest (nolo contendere).
More than 90 percent of convictions are the result of a plea bargain, but a plea bargain is not always in the defendant’s best interest.
Your attorney will try to get the best offer and will recommend whether you should accept it. The answer is not always yes.
A trial proceeds through the following steps:
You may choose to go to trial to defend yourself against all charges. You have the right to a trial by jury, or you may opt to have your trial heard by a judge.
Ideally, you will be successful at trial. However, should you be convicted, you have the right to appeal a guilty verdict.
An appeal is a review of the evidence already admitted at trial; it is not a new trial. You must file a notice of appeal within 30 days, and appellate courts strictly enforce this 30-day deadline.
In my early career, I proudly worked as a public defender. Unlike many criminal defense attorneys, I have never worked as a prosecutor—and never would. Prosecuting people presumed innocent and pressuring them into plea agreements or prison sentences is offensive to my moral code.
If you’re looking for a criminal defense attorney, you’re sure to find many former prosecutors. They’ll tell you their experience putting people in jail will help keep you out of jail. While many of them are capable attorneys, ask yourself: should I trust my case, my claim, or life in them?
Choosing an attorney to defend against criminal charges or to advance your claim for money damages after you’ve been injured is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. Do you want to depend on someone who made a living putting people behind bars? Working with the insurance companies? Or someone who built a career fighting for the accused and the injured from day one? There is little glitz or glamour in a career in public defense. But each day, I got to fight for what I thought was right. That was its own reward.
My name is Jordan Redavid. I am a three-time graduate of the University of Miami with deep roots in this city. I consider it a privilege and a duty to provide the people within the Miami community with skillful legal defense.EMAIL JORDAN
In my first year of practice alone I took nearly 20 cases all the way to a verdict, the vast majority of which were wins. Other attorneys might try 20 cases to verdict in their entire careers.
Some attorneys push their clients to take unfavorable settlement agreements to avoid trial. Prosecutors and Insurance Adjusters know this about other lawyers. They know which attorneys are more likely to settle and which will go to trial. Prosecutors and insurance companies will treat cases differently depending on which attorney sits across the table. That can and will have a direct impact on plea or settlement offers or how they value your case. Prosecutors and insurance adjusters know that I am ready, willing and able to take your case the distance and achieve desirable results.
More than 90% of all cases settle rather than going to trial. Do you think all of those cases are weak enough that settlement is the only option? No way. They settle because many lawyers are scared to go to trial or they place their own interests ahead of their clients.
My reputation as a fierce trial attorney and someone who resolves cases in the courtroom, not on the courthouse steps, brings value to my clients’ cases. If your case settles, it will be because the deal works to your advantage – not because I am afraid to go the distance.
I take cases to verdict on a regular basis. And when I do, the results are almost always favorable. That matters - not just for those individual clients, but for how opposing parties and lawyers deal with me on future cases.EMAIL JORDAN
My primary concern is client service. I answer phone calls, text messages, and emails 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. My commitment is for each client to know what is going on in their case at all times and know they can reach me when they need to.
I feel the attorney-client relationship works best when clients are empowered with information and understanding about their cases. I make sure my clients know what I’m doing, why I am doing it, and what will happen next.
At Redavid Law, my proudest achievement is my large family of satisfied clients. Each of my clients knows at the end of their case that I gave every effort and provided the best legal service available.
I answer calls and emails 24/7. Call Jordan Redavid now at 305-938-9939 or send me an email.
My clients know they can reach me 24/7 to discuss their case, and when they do, they get simple and clear answers.EMAIL JORDAN

Losing a loved one due to wrongful death can be devastating. While wrongful deaths can happen through a number of different circumstances, they can be even more shocking when they occur at the hands of law enforcement. For example, an innocent bystander may be hit by a driver speeding to get away from a police […] Read More
Some lawyers complicate things. I don’t. I simplify them. It’s important that my clients understand what I do for them and why I do it. After all, it’s their case, their life, and their future I’m fighting for.
Every lawyer has a duty to his or her clients. Some criminal defense lawyers and personal injury attorneys view this as an obligation. To me, it’s an honor and a privilege. I proudly serve my clients’ best interests from the moment they join my firm’s family.
Tradition plays an important role in the law, but creativity is essential. Sadly, many Miami criminal defense attorneys are stuck in their ways. They use the same techniques and arguments in case after case. I don’t. Every client is unique, as is his or her case, and the law was meant to be interpreted and flexible. I am innovative and willing to employ extraordinary strategies to achieve desired results.
If the only thing transparent about a criminal defense or personal injury lawyer is how much they’re billing you, that’s a problem. At Redavid Law PLLC, I let you see behind the curtain. I explain our strategies and, when you have questions, I encourage you to ask them. My clients know they can reach me 24/7 to discuss their case, and when they do, they get clear answers.

“Hire this lawyer, it will be the best decision of your life...
I have always had a passion for representing people, not the
government or insurance companies.
Every case is different and every client is unique. I act like it.
Florida DUI laws and penalties are among the strictest and most severe in the nation.
DUI convictions, perhaps more than any other type of offense, have the potential to negatively impact the lives of decent, hard-working members of our community. Unfortunately, it’s usually after you are charged with a DUI that you realize how complicated and punitive Florida’s laws are. Don’t make the mistake of underestimating the seriousness of your DUI charge.
That said, don’t be misled by the illusion of pre-trial diversion programs for first-time offenders such as Back on Track (BOT). These programs are costly, rigorous, and tough to complete. What’s more? They usually require that you confess to committing DUI before they enroll you. Guess what? Slip up once while in the program and you’ll be bounced out of it; back to facing DUI charges where this time the Government already has your confession. Programs such as this should not be accepted without consulting with an experienced DUI lawyer like Jordan Redavid.LEARN MORE
Did you know…
If any of this comes as a surprise, you are not alone. Many people underestimate the complexity of DUI charges, the severity of the consequences, and the need for an attorney. Do not make the same mistake.
Our founding attorney has been on the cutting-edge of DUI litigation in Florida. In fact, he was the first in Miami to argue that many aspects of Florida’s DUI laws, which had been on the books for over a decade, were unconstitutional. Nobody else had thought of it, but Jordan Redavid was willing to think outside the box to create the argument.
Every day, lives are ruined and families torn apart by drug charges.
Illegal drugs can be harmful and addictive, but often, law enforcement’s response is even more damaging. Our job is to minimize the harm done to you if you are charged with drug crimes. Our goal is to get involved as early as possible and do everything we can to avoid having you or your loved one become a casualty of our nation’s seemingly never ending “War on Drugs.”
We stand ready to defend you against state and federal drug charges of all kinds.
From the smallest possession charge to the most serious federal trafficking charges, we know how to dismantle prosecutors’ cases and keep you out of jail. Do not wait for the charges to drop – if you think you may be in trouble, call Redavid Law now.

At Redavid Law PLLC, we are ready to defend you against drug charges of all types.
In Florida, there are five “schedules” of controlled substances. Fla. Stat. 893.03. (link) Between all five schedules, there are well over 200 controlled substances on the books.
Under federal law, many of the same drugs are considered controlled substances. It’s easy to see how a state-level charge can quickly escalate into a federal prosecution.
A violation of federal law results in federal criminal charges.
Government agencies such as the FBI, DEA, and IRS investigate federal crimes. While most charges are for state crimes, the list of federal crimes grows seemingly every day.
A federal criminal charge is a very serious matter. By some measures, more than 90% of federal prosecutions result in a conviction. Unlike state and local prosecutors, federal prosecutors will not file charges unless they already have a strong case against you and are confident of a conviction. By the time they file charges, they have already invested considerable effort into investigating the case.
This is why it is important to start building a defense as soon as possible. If you believe you may be the target of an investigation, call your attorney. If a business partner is under investigation or you believe they have committed a crime, call your attorney. And if federal investigators want to speak with you about a case, call your attorney. Call Jordan Redavid today.LEARN MORE
Examples of federal crimes include:
It’s easy to see that many offenses could bring both federal and state charges. In many cases, either state prosecutors or federal prosecutors will defer to the other. But if that prosecution fails, the deferring government may then file their own charges. You may ask, doesn’t this violate a defendant’s constitutional protection from double jeopardy?
Unfortunately for many defendants, the answer is no. While double jeopardy protection prevents a single government from prosecuting a defendant twice, two different governments may do so. For all these reasons, you need a criminal defense attorney who is prepared to defend you in both state and federal court.
Many attorneys market themselves as appellate lawyers, but few have the experience, work ethic, and knowledge to advance an appeal properly.
Don’t hire just anyone. You want to hire someone with specific appellate expertise. At Redavid Law, we routinely handle criminal appeals.
If you received a guilty verdict at your criminal trial, you may be considering an appeal. That is your right. But a successful appeal is not easy. It’s not a second trial. And it may be your last chance to clear your name. You want to be sure you get it right.
The appeals process is focused on any errors that may have occurred at the trial level. Even the best defensive arguments from your trial will generally not apply. A new case for your defense must be built from the ground up.LEARN MORE
Other Forms of Post-Conviction Relief
Sometimes, filing a direct appeal is not appropriate, or not an option. In those cases, we must consider and examine other forms of relief.
Motion to Correct Incorrect or Illegal Sentence
A sentence may exceed the legally allowable limit for the charge, often because of an incorrect calculation.
Failure to Award Proper Jail Credit Time Served
A defendant may ask their sentence be revised if they believe they did not receive the proper credit for time served (“CTS”) in county jail before sentencing.
Writ of Habeas Corpus
A writ of habeas corpus allows a defendant to challenge the legality or conditions of their imprisonment. It is considered a request for “extraordinary” relief.
Motion to Vacate or Set Aside Sentence
This motion allows a defendant to challenge their sentence on certain specific grounds, including jurisdiction and constitutionality.
If you are injured due to the fault of another, a legal case can be a very intimidating prospect.

To ensure that your best interests are protected, I never charge for initial consultations, nor do I require any up-front fees or costs.
