Criminal Charges may be filed against someone because of testimony given by witnesses, or physical evidence such as, DNA, fingerprints or drug tests. In some case such as DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, the charges can be filed without the victim pressing charges or recanting prior testimony. Charges can also be initiated by some law enforcement department official with no testimonial witnesses. There are so many intricacies associated with the crimes that are charged against you, that you cannot afford to hire someone with less experience in the court room. In order for you to get the best result in your case you should hire a Criminal Defense Lawyer that has TRIAL experience in both State and Federal Court Systems, like Bradford. Most recently he was the recipient of the 'hat trick award" from the Broward Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, for three NOT GUILTY verdicts on Felony Trials in a row.
