The firm’s representation includes all aspects of the criminal process, including federal and state criminal trials, federal and state criminal appeals, criminal investigations, grand jury proceedings, post-conviction litigation and sentence reductions.

Defending Against Federal & State Charges

Specializing in federal and state criminal defense, our Miami criminal defense lawyer represents accused persons and other entities in a wide array of matters related to federal and state criminal offenses. 

While the firm remains a criminal defense trial firm at its core, clients often simply desire to resolve their criminal matters as quickly and favorably as possible through negotiated settlements. In other instances, trial is the more appropriate course of action. Each client’s case is different, and no matter what the client chooses, Paul Petruzzi and his team strive to ensure that they obtain an outcome that best minimizes any criminal exposure so that his clients may move on with their personal lives and business affairs.
