A Firm with Roots in Miami

Unlike many criminal defense law firms, it is not our intention to take on a massive caseload to maximize profits. We do not employ dozens of attorneys in offices scattered across several counties. Instead, we got our start in Miami, and that is the only place where we practice.

We are members of the same community as you, and we are proud of our Miami roots. We know how the courts in this city work, and we are familiar with the local U.S. attorneys and federal judges. When you walk into the courtroom with Joel DeFabio by your side, you will be sending a clear message to the prosecutor that you are serious about getting the best possible results in your case.

How We Help Our Clients

We place our clients' best interests at the forefront of everything we do. This begins when you come to us for your free case evaluation. Once you have told us your story and we have discussed the situation, we will give you an unbiased and honest opinion of your legal options and your chances of avoiding a conviction; we will not tell you that we think we can win the case unless we sincerely believe that to be true.

If the goal in your case is to negotiate with the prosecutor for a favorable plea bargain, we will work tirelessly to obtain a favorable deal for you.

We want you to be able to move on from this experience as soon as possible and with a minimum of negative repercussions in your life. If, on the other hand, your goal is to pursue a dismissal of the charges or a full acquittal, we will be ready to fight aggressively to defend your rights. Remember, you are legally presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

We make it our job to place the burden of proof squarely on the shoulders of the prosecutor and make him or her do the work of establishing your guilt. You have a great deal at stake in this situation, and you cannot afford to take any chances with the outcome of your case.
