You need legal representation that is creative, dynamic, practical, and cost-effective. Our Business Litigation clients appreciate our practical approach to business disputes. Like our clients, we think strategically about whether a case should be settled, litigated, or resolved in some other manner such as mediation.
Our mission is to aggressively and tenaciously defend our clients, even before the case reaches the courtroom. When the stakes are high and you’re facing criminal charges, you need lawyers with experience, who are available to take your case immediately, and work for the best possible result in or out of court.
White Collar Crime
We are uniquely qualified to handle the defense of white collar crime, as Attorney Robert Eckard is a former State Prosecutor and is a Board Certified expert in Business Litigation by the Florida Bar. In today’s business environment, business and crime often intersect. A legitimate business decision should not result in a criminal Indictment.
Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
More people are arrested for DUI than any other crime in America. Too often these arrests are based on the opinions of ill-trained police officers, questionable field sobriety tests, unreliable breath test results and innocent driving patterns. Just because you have been charged with DUI does not mean that you legally or factually should have. Attorney Robert Eckard is a former state prosecutor and knows first-hand the strategies and tactics used by the prosecution. He has personally handled more than 3000 DUI cases.
