Renowned Expertise in Criminal Defense
When your freedom is on the line, every decision matters. Led by firm partner Jason B. Blank, our criminal defense practice is well-equipped to guide you through the complexity of the criminal justice system. We offer robust defense strategies for a broad spectrum of crimes, from Domestic Violence and DUI to White Collar crimes, Sex Offenses, and beyond.
Jason B. Blank, a well-known figure in Florida’s courts, is recognized for his unwavering commitment to his clients. His solid reputation precedes him in courtrooms statewide and extends all the way to the Florida Supreme Court. Jason builds strong, trusting relationships with his clients, helping them feel understood and respected while tackling their legal challenges head-on.
In our dedicated criminal defense practice, we work to get charges dismissed or reduced where possible, negotiate favorable terms that minimize jail time or avoid it altogether, or provide strong, effective representation in court to obtain an acquittal or not guilty verdict. We take the time to look carefully at your case, review the evidence and available defenses, and craft a strategy to get the best result out of your unique set of circumstances. Reach out to Haber Blank, LLP, if you’ve been arrested for any of the following crimes in Fort Lauderdale or South Florida:
These offenses involve harm or a threat of harm to individuals within a domestic or family relationship. Domestic violence allegations are not always credible, and sometimes the motives of the alleged victim are questionable as well.
Our defense of firearms charges such as unlawful possession could identify illegal searches and other constitutional violations.
We defend people charged with possession with intent to sell or illegal distribution of controlled substances and other drug crimes. Defenses against drug charges include illegal searches, lack of knowledge or intent, and irregularities in police procedures, among others.
Currently, Florida police make nearly 40,000 DUI arrests every year. Many times, these arrests are based on unlawful stops, inaccurate or subjective tests, or other claims the prosecution simply cannot prove when faced with a strong and knowledgeable defense.
Stand Your Ground/Forcible Felonies
Florida law clearly allows self-defense, even deadly force in appropriate settings, but that doesn’t keep people from getting arrested for exercising their lawful rights to protect themselves, their property, and the lives and safety of others. We are here to protect you when you do what’s necessary to protect yourself and your family.
Homicide and Assault
Prosecutors must prove more than just harm to another; they must prove an intent to harm. Often prosecutors lack the evidence to establish the element of intent or other critical elements required to prove a crime occurred. People accused of violent crimes could have many defenses available to fight the charges against them.
Theft offenses are defined in Florida statutes, and every element of the alleged offense must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt before a defendant can be convicted of a crime. We raise all viable defenses and challenge the prosecutor’s case at every turn.
Sex offenses most often involve non-consensual sexual acts or exploitation; a possible defense might examine the presence of consent or the credibility of the allegations themselves. We approach sex crime charges with sensitivity and a thorough knowledge of the applicable law.
Issues such as lack of intent, entrapment, or insufficient evidence can often be brought to attack charges of embezzlement, forgery, fraud, or other white-collar crimes.
Expungement & Sealing
Florida statutes allow for the sealing or expunction of criminal history records so that access to records is highly restricted or records are completely removed from the system and destroyed. We know the process for the many different ways that criminal records, and even domestic violence injunctions, may be sealed or expunged under Florida law. We’ll determine whether you are eligible and help you get the fresh start you are ready to make.
