What We Do

Few things can be as stressful, unnerving and downright terrifying as a knock on the door by Federal or State law enforcement at the break of dawn.  And what follows is hardly any better— getting cuffed, frisked, finger-printed, jailed and marched into a courtroom the following morning in an orange jumper after a harrowing, sleepless night.


Chances are that you’ve visited our website because you or someone close to you has gone through this nightmare and is presently facing Federal or State court criminal charges.  And chances are that you’ve already visited other sites offering you an “aggressive” defense (whatever that is), by a “former” prosecutor. 


We’re not fresh out of law school.  We’re not about flashy videos and starry-eyed promises and anonymous testimonials. 

We’re About Results.


Rick Hermida has been practicing Federal and State criminal defense work since 1987 and has represented hundreds of clients from their initial appearance to arraignment to trial.  


We know the stakes are high. 


Whether your case is in Federal or State court, prosecutors methodically build their cases using high-tech surveillance tools, cellular phone records, cooperating witnesses, confidential informants and experienced law enforcement agencies such as the DEA, the FBI, ICE, and FDLE.


That being said, don’t be afraid to fight back. 


After all, this isn’t Iran, North Korea or Cuba.  Remember ― you’ve got certain, valuable rights that are guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States of America.

What We Can Do For You:

A careful review of the evidence in your case by an experienced Federal and State criminal defense attorney may reveal defenses to the charge in your case that weren’t immediately apparent to you, your family, or to your friends. 


Mr. Hermida has a proven track record — and a reputation for “fighting hard for his clients” by “leveling the playing field” with carefully crafted defenses, exhaustive investigations, effective pretrial motions and winning trial strategies — ”one case at a time.”

We Can Help.

Over the years, we've learned that our clients are best served when they engage us early in a criminal investigation.  For additional information about the scope of our criminal defense client services, contact Mr. Hermida directly at 305-461-1116 or our 24 hour phone number 305-461-1066 for a free, confidential consultation.   


We are solely a Criminal Defense Law Firm.  That's all we do and all we have done since 1987.
