Michael A. Catalano - Miami Criminal Defense Lawyer With Over 25 Years’ Experience

Defense Attorney for Violent Crime Charges

Assault ∙ Manslaughter ∙ Murder
Sometimes, a criminal defense lawyer's job is to tell people the defendant's side of the story. Along with protecting a client's constitutional rights and building a technical defense, "telling the story" can be a defense attorney's most valuable tool.

Once you are caught up in the criminal justice system, no one else is interested in the defendant's version of events, and it is your defense lawyer's responsibility to make people interested — whether it's the prosecutor or the jury in a trial.

"Telling the story" — or showing all the causes and effects of an event — is especially important during defense of a violent crime such as assault or homicide. But in order to tell the story, we first have to conduct an investigation to find out what all sides of the story are:

• Are any witnesses telling the truth?
• Are there other explanations for physical evidence?
• Does the alleged victim of an assault charge have reason to exaggerate?

As part of building a defense to a violent crime charge, these questions must be answered in addition to reviewing police procedures during the arrest and investigation — because our other job is to make sure your constitutional rights as a criminal defendant are protected during every step of the process.
