Why Should you Consult with Pagan & Stroleny, P.L.?
After an arrest, the first step is getting the accused out of custody. Depending on the charges, there are many ways to get someone accused of a criminal act out of custody such as Broward Department of Corrections’ programs, cash bonds, or a program known as ROR “Release on your Own Recognizance.” Our criminal defense attorneys in Fort Lauderdale are familiar with the many different options and can best advise you on how to get the accused out of custody.

After the accused has been released, there are usually a few weeks in between the arrest and the first court date. This time should be spent strategizing with your criminal defense lawyer in preparation for the accused’s rapidly approaching court date (the Arraignment hearing). Pagan & Stroleny, P.L. attorneys practice solely criminal defense law and understand the severity of criminal allegations. When your freedom or the freedom of someone you care about is at stake, put yourself in the hands of former prosecutors with a sole focus on criminal defense.
