Summary

David Edelstein is an AV® rated criminal defense attorney representing clients facing criminal charges in both state and federal courts throughout the State of Florida. Mr. Edelstein started his career as a criminal lawyer in Miami at the Miami-Dade County Public Defender's Office and has been in private practice for the past 20 years. He has defended clients facing criminal charges in Florida from Jacksonville to Key West and from Portland, Oregon to New York City. Although he has occasionally represented clients on appeal, Mr. Edelstein spends the majority of his time as a criminal trial attorney.

“Our firm’s criminal defense lawyers have extensive experience defending clients facing criminal charges, as well as those under criminal investigation. We represent clients in State & Federal courts in all types of misdemeanor and felony cases. We have decades of experience defending domestic violence cases, sex crimes, drug crimes, fraud offenses, theft crimes, federal crimes, and violent crimes. Over the years we have represented clients charged with petty offenses like resisting an officer without violence and disorderly conduct, to major crimes like sexual battery and murder. The majority of our clients are first-time offenders charged with relatively minor offenses. These cases typically involve shoplifting, prostitution, criminal mischief, trespass, assault, indecent exposure, reckless driving, fleeing and eluding, driving with a suspended license, and possession of drug paraphernalia. At any given time, we also represent a handful of clients in federal criminal cases who are in need of our services as experienced federal criminal defense attorneys.

We also represent clients in domestic violence, stalking, repeat violence, and dating injunction proceedings. We offer free consultations to prospective clients.”
