Resisting With Violence

Resisting Arrest With Violence Attorney

Scales of justice

In Miami and Fort Lauderdale, often times when an altercation occurs with the police an individual will be arrested for Resisting an officer with violence. This crime is a third degree felony in Miami, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000.00 fine. If you are charged with resisting an officer with violence in Miami or Fort Lauderdale, it is imperative that you have a strong criminal defense lawyer on your side who knows how to challenge the police’s evidence and fight for your case. Often times, once a background investigation into the police officer’s history on the police force, it will be shown that the officer is known for using excessive force. At Gilbert and Smallman we have experience cross examining police officers on these types of issues. Contact us now to setup your free consultation in either downtown Miami or Fort Lauderdale with one of our criminal defense attorneys.
