There may likely be many times in your life when you feel the need to seek legal advice or representation, but perhaps nowhere is this need more immediate and important than if you are going through a divorce or child custody dispute, or if you have been arrested for a drug crime or other criminal charges. The outcome of family law and criminal law cases not only have an instant impact on your life but continue to have consequences for you and your family for many years to come. Getting these matters done right the first time is essential to your freedom, your family, and your future.

Fort Lauderdale Family Law & Divorce
Our comprehensive family law practice encompasses the entire spectrum of marital relations, from prenuptial and postnuptial agreements to divorce and post-divorce modifications and enforcement. We represent clients in family law matters ranging from paternity cases to domestic violence restraining orders. We apply years of family law experience to make sure your rights and interests are fully represented in your Broward County divorce, including child support, alimony, parental responsibility and time-sharing, and the equitable distribution of marital property.
Our experienced family law attorneys take the time to understand your unique issues and provide you with the level of expertise and representation your case requires. With certified mediators and veteran litigators in our firm, we are prepared to resolve your family law matter as quickly and favorably as possible. We strive to protect your rights and interests and get you the best result no matter what setting we are in, from the negotiating table to the courtroom. We encourage collaboration and amicable resolution wherever possible but are always ready to represent you in court with skill, strength and expertise. We also provide document review services to assist individuals proceeding without an attorney, or who let their spouse’s attorney draw up an agreement and need an independent eye to make sure they are adequately protected.
Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense
An arrest for a serious crime in Florida can do more than put your life or liberty in jeopardy. You can face the loss of your property, and a criminal conviction can haunt you forever, keeping you from getting the job you want or the career you dreamed about, dictating where you can and can’t live, whether you can get a loan or good credit, how you will be perceived by family, friends and neighbors, and much more. We understand what is at stake in any criminal case, and we fight hard to provide the best defense and achieve the best outcome possible.
Our comprehensive criminal law practice includes defense of the full range of misdemeanor and felony charges in Florida state and federal courts, including DUI, drug offenses, burglary and theft, robbery and homicide, white collar crimes, firearms and weapons offenses, sex crimes, computer and internet crimes, violation of probation and domestic violence.
Any arrest should be taken seriously and handled with the advice and representation of an experienced criminal defense attorney. Prosecutors may make you feel like the easiest path is to plead guilty and move on with your life, but they don’t tell you of the many strikes a single conviction can place on you, including penalty enhancements and mandatory sentences if you are ever arrested again in the future. You also have no way of knowing how strong the prosecution’s actually is or what defenses you may have on your side. Trachman & Ballot-Lena, PA offers a free case evaluation to give you an idea of where you stand, so you can make the best decision about how to proceed.
