Criminal Defense Lawyer serving Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach
Mr. Hagoo appreciates and understands the emotional stress, anxiety, confusion, and frustration one can go through after getting arrested and thrown into the criminal justice system. Not only are you facing the threat of criminal penalties, but also a stigma that can potentially follow you for the rest of your life. The consequences to a criminal conviction not only limits your freedom and liberty but it can also have a negative and, sometimes, an everlasting impact on an individual’s career, ability to pursue a higher education, your license to practice a profession/trade, your civil rights, social status, eligibility to join the military, driving privileges, and immigration status.
Mr. Hagoo possesses the experience to prepare and aggressively fight your case to trial, as well as the knowledge, skills, creativity, and relationships to successfully negotiate a favorable plea. Being charged with a crime can be an overwhelming experience, and many are confused about what their options are. Attorney Amir Hagoo will take the time to explain each stage of the criminal justice system and will also give you an honest and upfront assessment of each individual case, including the good and the bad. Mr. Hagoo will not sweet talk, sugar coat, or frighten you into retaining him; he offers a no-pressure, free office consultation for those facing criminal offenses, and will tell you how he would design a plan for the road ahead.
What sets Mr. Hagoo apart is his belief and work ethic of preparing his cases so well that he will end up knowing it better than the prosecutors, judge, and sometimes even you. Unlike a lot of lawyers, Mr. Hagoo is not afraid of taking your case to trial or arguing that your rights have been violated. Over his career, Mr. Hagoo has taken well over 50 trials to verdict, argued many pre-trial evidentiary motions, handled post-conviction matters, including violations of probation and motions to vacate, and got involved in many cases at the “pre-file,” or case-filing stage. Preparation is Mr. Hagoo’s key attribute and reason why he has been able to achieve positive results for many of his clients.
