Hire Whittel & Melton Criminal Defense Attorneys to Contact the Prosecutor Before Charges Are Filed

For anyone facing felony criminal charges, it is important to remember that the State Attorney's Office can take as many as 21 days to make a filing decision after arrest.

Our South Florida Murder and Manslaughter attorneys are former South Florida prosecutors who will not only work to ensure you are able to receive a bond so you can fight these allegations out of custody, will be able to meet with prosecutors, arguing your case with them-- many times resulting in less serious charges being filed or in certain circumstances, preventing charges from being filed at all.

With an attorney from Whittel & Melton on your side, you have much a better chance of obtaining the result that will not become a life-defining event.
