Florida Criminal Defense Lawyers Taking Proactive Measures
If you are under investigation by local law enforcement, the FBI or the IRS, you need the advice of a Florida criminal defense lawyer immediately. Unfortunately, many people think that their problem will simply go away. They may believe they can talk themselves out of the problem by meeting with an investigator, detective or police officer. Nothing could be further from the truth.
At Aiken & O’Halloran, we have an in-house criminal investigation team composed of former law enforcement officers. As state or federal law enforcement officials are preparing their prosecution, the attorneys at our firm will be preparing your criminal defense. Often, gathering information while memories are fresh and physical evidence and videos are still available can make an enormous difference in the ultimate disposition of a criminal investigation.
If you know or believe you could be under investigation, we encourage you to contact us immediately. Call the criminal defense attorneys at Aiken & O’Halloran at 239-666-6035 or complete our contact form. We represent clients throughout the Fort Myers area.

Remember: You have a right to remain silent. You have a right to an attorney. These are important constitutional rights that unwary people often give up in the mistaken belief that they can explain away a previous error in judgment. Rarely is law enforcement gathering information that will help you. Rarely does law enforcement put in its report facts that demonstrate innocence as opposed to guilt.
