Why Choose Redavid Law?
Calling a criminal defense lawyer at Redavid Law PLLC is a wise choice if you or someone you care about is arrested, convicted, injured, or worse. Hiring the right attorney can be hugely beneficial; hiring the wrong attorney can be catastrophic. When making such an important decision, you should have all of the facts necessary to make it.
My name is Jordan Redavid, and I want to tell you a few things about myself that I hope will help you make your decision.
I am a career criminal defense attorney, not a former prosecutor.
When hiring a criminal defense attorney in Miami, you have many options. A large number of those lawyers also promote the fact that they are “former prosecutors” as if it is somehow a benefit in a criminal case. That’s for you to decide, but I have always defended people accused of crimes, never prosecuted them. I feel that matters.
For starters, nobody can promise you favorable outcomes or “better deals” because they “know somebody.” If they do, be wary. Many will tell you, “I know how prosecutors think” (because they were one). You should be thinking, “I want someone who thinks like a defense attorney, not a prosecutor.” Our system of criminal justice is adversarial; meaning, there are two opposing sides. Prosecutors and criminal defense lawyers are two different sides; two different strategies, skill sets, and motivations.
Prosecutors defend police action, ask for evidence to be admissible, and, even before a trial, try to negotiate deals so that people accused of crimes, despite being presumed innocent under the law, take guilty pleas and have criminal records. Real criminal defense lawyers, like me, know that police misconduct is rampant, and police are just as likely to lie or fabricate evidence as anyone else. I know how to expose those police officers and point out the holes and conflicts in their testimony. That’s where reasonable doubts, the foundation of acquittals, come from!
In sum, the best plea bargain offers come to those defense attorneys who effectively demonstrate to a prosecutor that the State’s case is not provable in court; to those defense attorneys who prosecutors know will actually take a case to trial and win. When it’s your criminal case, and future, on the line, be sure you hire the right defense attorney.
