If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime in Hallandale Beach, it is crucial that you contact an attorney without delay. Facing any criminal charge without a skilled defense attorney to advise you is dangerous. Many crime convictions include serious punishments including time spent in jail or in state prison.

With the assistance of a criminal defense lawyer from Hager & Schwartz, P.A., you can rest assured that every legal effort will be made on your behalf.
Types of Criminal Charges
As Florida is a “vacation state” and its reputation is important, law enforcement in the area has been given the task of reducing the crime rate. Any crime charges become a very serious matter in this area, as the prosecutor, with the full support of law enforcement and other investigatory units, will be dedicated to getting a conviction in your case. Every prosecutor tracks their “conviction percentage” and you are definitely just another statistic when it comes to the prosecution. At Hager & Schwartz, P.A. the legal team takes your case personally and operates accordingly. You will be informed every step of the way.
We provide defense for a range of criminal charges, such as:
- Assault / battery

Any individual in Florida who has a prior criminal record has a tougher situation. In some charges, with a prior conviction, your penalties are enhanced. These are serious situations, and need a seasoned and dedicated criminal defense lawyer to immediately begin to fight for the defense. A quality defense for a serious crime begins immediately after the arrest. It is strongly urged that you do not answer questions from law enforcement or investigators without first getting legal counsel. It is true that anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law. It is important to avoid talking to “friendly” investigators, no matter what the crime.
