Fort Lauderdale Criminal Lawyer
Experience in High-Profile Criminal Cases and Serious Charges
If you have been charged with a serious crime, look for two key characteristics in a law firm: focus and experience. Is the firm’s practice concentrated on criminal defense, or is it a general law firm? How long have the attorneys been practicing criminal defense? How many jury trials have they handled?
At Kevin J. Kulik, P.A. we have been practicing criminal law exclusively for nearly 30 years. Kevin Kulik got his start in the prosecutor’s office in 1985 and was soon hired as a criminal defense lawyer. Since then, he has defended thousands of clients facing serious charges. It takes more than knowledge and experience — It takes a passion for justice. When we work for you, we also work with you. We listen to your story, we explain the process and we provide options. Isn’t that the kind of legal representation you need? Contact our Fort Lauderdale criminal lawyer today.
We develop state and federal criminal defense strategies
The difference between state and federal crimes is not as simple as severity. After all, most homicides are state crimes that carry serious penalties. The difference between the laws and the procedures is quite substantial. You need a Fort Lauderdale criminal lawyer who understands those differences and has experience providing state and federal defense. We aren’t afraid to take on the most complex criminal cases — and we have 500 jury trials under our belt to prove it.
Being charged with a crime in Fort Lauderdale is not the end of the road
Most people who are arrested in Fort Lauderdale automatically believe that if they are charged with a crime, they will go to jail, have to pay a large fine, or both, even if they are innocent. However, this is not true; while the system is surely far from perfect, as a person who is charged with a crime in Fort Lauderdale, you have certain constitutional rights. One of those rights is the right to defend yourself against charges against you, and to have competent legal representation.
We have successfully challenged evidence, built strong defenses, and negotiated plea bargains for our clients
At the offices of Kevin J. Kulik, P.A., we have been protecting the constitutional rights of our clients for more than 30 years, and understand that even when things look bad, the hard work of a criminal defense lawyer can have a major positive impact on a client’s case. If you have been convicted of a crime, our trial-tested criminal defense lawyer will open an investigation in your case, gather all evidence relevant to your conviction, challenge evidence that doesn’t hold up, and argue strongly against any breach of your rights under the law.
Mr. Kulik and Ms. Kay do not reveal the identity of any client.
Attorneys owe clients absolute confidentiality. Almost every client suffers adverse effects from being arrested and prosecuted for a crime. Clients want to win their cases, but they also want to minimize the stigma and embarrassment associated with having been charged with a crime. Mr. Kulik and Ms. Kay believe in scrupulously avoiding drawing attention to either themselves or their clients when handling a criminal matter. Attorneys who “court the limelight” risk causing embarrassment, diminished employment, and many other harmful consequences to their clients.
Our firm believes that clients should be very suspicious of lawyers who promote themselves by appearing in the media as self-declared “experts” or “pundits.” These lawyers may be revealing a willingness to place their personal ego and notoriety ahead of their clients’ interests. Many times, the TV-media pundit lawyers pay a publicist to obtain this type of exposure. Then, the lawyers pass this cost along to their clients by quoting them excessive, unwarranted fees. This type of media exposure rarely indicates actual professional expertise. It can be very misleading. Attorneys should prefer professionalism over publicity, in our opinion. Our firm advises clients to exercise great caution when considering hiring any criminal defense lawyer who touts his media exposure. Such behavior should be treated as a warning signal. Clients instead should always demand absolute confidentiality and professionalism.
Our firm has represented other lawyers, medical professionals, judges, politicians, and many other individuals who value their reputations. Generally, these individuals will use their connections in the community to find out which lawyers will both maximize the chances of winning their case and protect their confidentiality. They rarely hire self-promoting media “pundit” lawyers. Please be aware of this when evaluating attorneys on the internet.
