Criminal Attorney In Polk County, Florida

Our white collar crime clients are usually first time offenders and have little to no experience in the legal system. Although usually educated, they believe that complete cooperation with federal agents or state detectives will mean leniency. This is not the case. What you say will be used against you to build the government’s case that ultimately may lead to a conviction. This is a very scary and stressful situation and you need an attorney who has the experience, knowledge and understanding to put forth the best possible defense.

Do not let fear and stress put you in a more precarious situation. The earlier you contact a Lakeland criminal attorney, the better off you are. David Carmichael will speak to investigators, federal agents and prosecutors on your behalf, or advise you how to handle your current situation.

Our Lakeland Criminal Lawyer knows all the different options available

At times, David Carmichael may prepare to attack your case at the grand jury proceeding by having his investigators meet with potential witnesses and prepare affidavits. A client should expect to meet with David to prepare you to testify at the grand jury. At times, we have successfully stopped charges from every being filed due to firm’s ability to be proactive rather than reactive.

If charges are filed, David Carmichael has the experience to handle these sophisticated cases. As a former Assistant State Attorney, he gained invaluable experience as a state prosecutor.


Selecting an attorney is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertising, before you decide, ask a lawyer to send you free written information about their qualifications and experience.

I encourage you to meet with at least three different attorney's before making a decision about whom to retain for your case. Contact the The Florida Bar at www.floridabar.org and receive a list of attorneys in your area.
