Questions & Answers

Regardless of your plea, an attorney is there to represent you and your interests. Even if you decide to plead guilty, your attorney helps negotiate the terms of your sentence, making sure all of your rights are respected as the case is evaluated. Occasionally we are able to negotiate for decreased consequences and penalties, depending on the circumstances.

Inform your attorney of the date that you have been given, so that we can be present at trial to negotiate on your behalf. At the trial, you are likely going to be asked to enter a plea, set bail, and listen to your rights as read to you by the court. Depending on the severity of your case, you may be able to waive your first hearing.

Depending on the crime, the trial may still be on your record whether or not the court declared you as guilty. As your attorney, we can help you file for clearing your record, should this be the case. Sometimes we cannot have the record completely expunged, but we can file for record sealing, which protects the case from being used against you in many circumstances.

It is important that you work with a lawyer who has specific knowledge about The Florida Bar proceedings. Your career is at stake and you owe it to yourself to make sure you have competent representation. Our founder at Rothman & Associates, P.A. has extensive experience serving as chair or co-chair of the Disciplinary Review Committee. We are very knowledgeable about issues relating to legal ethics.

The Florida Bar Any can terminate your ability to practice law if you failed to preserve your client’s confidences, are convicted of a felony or another egregious crime, abused the legal process, and many more. To learn more, contact our firm.

Now. Make certain he or she is an experienced Bar Defense Counsel. Not only does a lawyer who represent him or herself have a fool for a client, going forward on your own can cause additional issues by virtue of what you write or say and how you write or say it in response to the Bar Complaint. Hiring an inexperienced Bar Defense Counsel is akin to buying a boat with a hole in it.
