Choose an Experienced Private Attorney

If you've been charged with a crime in the South Florida area, you may be tempted to use a public defender to represent you. The public defenders in Broward, Palm Beach, and Dade Counties are assigned more cases than they could possibly represent. As a result, they are under enormous pressure to accept negotiated pleas from the prosecutors. This is not always in your best interest. At Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates, our attorneys won't recommend a plea unless it is your best option, and when we do, you'll have the final say in whether or not you take it.

Over the past three decades, the attorneys of Lawrence B. Wolk & Associates have been serving the men and women of South Florida. Contact us in our Fort Lauderdale office at (888) 965-5529 to schedule an appointment.
