West Palm Beach Criminal Defense Attorney

State and Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer

The Law Offices of Richard Tendler provides personal attention and aggressive legal representation for individuals facing charges ranging from misdemeanors to felonies. Our legal team is dedicated to providing the highest, most competent, professional and personalized legal services in the field of criminal defense.

It is no longer uncommon for someone to find themselves in a position of facing the immense power of the government. Choosing the right attorney is one of the most crucial decisions someone in this situation will make.

Serious Representation for Serious Charges

If you are facing criminal charges, whether you have been arrested for possession of marijuana or if you have been accused of murder, you need an experienced and trusted attorney on your side. I, Attorney Richard Tendler, am known for my skilled, effective and creative representation of individuals in Florida and other states across the country. Throughout my career, I have successfully won acquittals for clients in criminal trials ranging from misdemeanor DUI to felonies punishable by life. I work alongside defense attorney Christine Johnson and a staff of investigators and paralegals in building cases, gathering evidence, filing motions, trial preparation, and jury trials. We are committed to using all of our talents and experience in meeting and overcoming the challenges of the criminal justice system.

Standing by You Throughout the Process

My associate attorney, Christine Johnson, and I handle each and every case that is represented by my firm. You will not be handed off to an assistant or paralegal. Once hired, we will provide you with our personal cell phone numbers so that you can reach us when and if you need us. You may contact us to schedule a confidential consultation, and we are available at any time 24/7. We look forward to assisting you or your loved one in navigating the criminal justice system and in getting your life back on track.

Your Chances of Winning

Many people who have been arrested for a crime make a serious mistake: they give up hope of being able to beat the charges. These people think that the fact that there is evidence that they committed the crime means that there is no way of avoiding a conviction in the case. The fact is that it is nearly always possible to secure a better result by fighting the charges, and it is frequently possible to win. Remember, you are innocent until proven guilty. You cannot be convicted until and unless the prosecution proves beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime. That is where my firm comes in.

Our job as criminal defense lawyers is to raise questions in the minds of the jury members as to whether or not you are actually guilty. My firm has extensive experience in defending clients, and we know where to look for weaknesses in the evidence against you. With success, we may be able to secure an acquittal or dismissal of the case. Even if this is not possible, we can still seek to negotiate with the prosecutor for a favorable plea bargain. You have powerful rights but these rights will do you little to no good unless you know how to use them. Need a lawyer for a criminal case in West Palm Beach?
