West Palm Beach Criminal Lawyer
Defending Your Rights
When facing criminal charges, your reputation, freedom and future are all at stake. This is the time to choose a West Palm Beach criminal defense attorney who can help you fight back against the prosecution. My name is Phil Ridolfo, Jr. of The Law Offices of Phillip T. Ridolfo, Jr. and for the past twenty years, I have been steadfastly protecting the freedoms and rights of my clients. Having served as both a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney in literally hundreds of criminal cases in Palm Beach County, I have the trial experience, knowledge and relationships to help you through this unfortunate experience.
Depending on the crime, criminal charges are serious and can have extensive life-altering consequences. A misdemeanor could incur a fine or a prison sentence that is usually less than a year long. A felony, however, could result in substantial fines, life in prison, and permanent documentation on record. In addition, certain privileges could be revoked, such as the right to own firearms, the right to serve in the United States army, and the ability to work in certain professions. Criminal charges are not binding; the outcome of those charges is what matters. With the help of an experienced attorney, you may be able to reduce potential penalties or be acquitted altogether.
Because of the serious penalties that result from criminal charges, it is imperative that you immediately seek the help of a reliable and trustworthy criminal defense attorney who will defend your rights. There is no time to waste, so be proactive about you situation and your future. Committed, aggressive, professional representation is just a phone call away. I will personally handle your case with the utmost professionalism and a commitment to protect your constitutional rights. At no time during the process will you ever be "handed off" to a junior attorney, paralegal or secretary and you will be able to contact me directly 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Criminal Charges in West Palm Beach, FL
I have successfully represented clients for numerous types of charges, including assault,
child abuse and
credit card fraud. Many people find themselves arrested when there is a valid explanation, they are wrongfully accused or they are merely facing charges that do not fit the crime. I look out for the underdog and truly know the importance that criminal defense has in a case. It is why I have devoted my profession to defending those that are at odds with the justice system. I also represent clients that are charged with
criminal trespass, and
disorderly conduct. Any type of charge can impact your life in a negative way and I will look to prevent this from happening as much as possible.
My clients deserve a qualified defender, and I provide them with just that. I can also vigorously defend you for such charges as DUI,
domestic violence and
drug crimes including
possession with intent to sell, and
prescription fraud. Depending on the type of drug found, the amount and the illegal activity there will be a number of different consequences. These can be extreme and put many up against jail time and high fines. If you need help with an
expungement, I can review your case to see if you qualify. For many this is an invaluable opportunity to have their previous criminal conviction wiped out from their record and from public information. It allows them the chance to say that they have not been convicted for a crime.
Whether you are facing a felony crime or a
misdemeanor crime, I can offer you a high level of defense against any level of charges. If you have been charged with
reckless driving or
resisting arrest, turn to my office as soon as possible to get started developing a legal plan. Charges of
sex crimes and
stalking can leave you facing serious penalties that I will fight to avoid. Don't let a conviction for
solicitation of prostitution,
suspended license or
theft crimes go on your criminal record. Call my office when you are dealing with
violation of a restraining order, I am ready to serve your needs and present a strong defense on your behalf.
