Defending Clients in the Sunshine State

Defending Clients in the Sunshine State

Since 2010, Florida has experienced a population increase of over 3.4 million. In 2022 alone, the inbound migration came primarily from New York, California, and New Jersey. Every day, roughly 1200 people are moving into Florida from elsewhere.

Florida criminal defense

Many people find themselves unexpectedly arrested or otherwise involved in a criminal case. They may not even understand how it happened. Whether a felony or simple misdemeanor, don’t take criminal charges lightly—get legal help immediately. Make sure that your rights are protected.

The State of Florida takes criminal charges very seriously. Adam Farkas & Jacqueline Crowley have previous experience as prosecutors and understand how a case will be prosecuted. Because they understand the Florida criminal justice system, they can work to have your charges reduced or dismissed.

How We Can Help You

We know that many people aren’t familiar with the Florida criminal justice system, or how to hire a lawyer for their defense. In many cases, it’s a person’s first exposure to the criminal justice system and they don’t know what to do next.

Our website has answers to questions we get frequently. Browse through these questions before you visit so you’ll have a better idea of what we do.

During our consultation with you, we’ll discuss your case and what we can do to help. Every case is different, so there are no set answers. We can investigate your case and explain how to proceed.

Depending on the circumstances, we may be able to have your case dismissed. If that isn’t possible, we will protect your rights throughout the process and work to have the charges reduced. Our goal is to give each client the strongest defense possible no matter what the charges are and work for the best possible outcome.

False Accusations

It’s not unusual for someone to be accused of a crime based on false accusations. Domestic abuse can escalate into a phone call after a heated argument. Another person may falsely accuse someone to get revenge. Whatever the reason, don’t ignore the charges, even if you’re innocent. Take them seriously and defend yourself, or you could go to jail for a crime you didn’t commit.

If you’re arrested on false charges, our advice is the same: don’t speak with the police or answer any of their questions until you speak with one of our defense attorneys first. Even if you’re innocent, you’ll run the same risks of having anything you say used against you. Don’t let the police talk you into saying anything on your own—tell them clearly that you want to speak to an attorney. Our criminal defense attorneys will work to protect your rights, investigate your case, and defend you in court.

When the criminal case is complete, you can file a civil lawsuit for financial damages against the accuser, such as legal fees, lost income/career, etc.


After an arrest, it’s your responsibility to protect and defend yourself. The police are unconcerned with justice, only making arrests, and solving cases. We believe that you should consult with a criminal defense attorney anytime you are asked to speak to the police. Say nothing to them until you speak with us.

If you or a loved one has been arrested or accused of a crime, contact the criminal defense team of Farkas & Crowley as soon as possible. We are available 24/7, whenever you need us. Call (561)-444-9529 or contact us online to schedule your consultation.
