Richard Ansara Attorney at Law


Davie is a town of more than 90,000 located in Broward County. Originally named Zona, it was renamed Davie, after R.P. Davie assisted Governor Broward in draining the swampland.

Today, Davie Criminal Defense Attorney Richard Ansara represents clients facing misdemeanor and felony charges in Davie and the surrounding areas, including Pembroke Pines, Weston, Sunrise, Hollywood, Miramar, Plantation and Lauderhill.

Despite the encroachment of residential and commercial development, Davie has a history as a “western” town and boasts a significant horse-owning population as well as cattle farms and other livestock operations. The Town itself is 34 square miles in size and is home to a number of colleges and universities, including Nova Southeastern University, Broward College and ITT Technical Institute.

Richard Ansara is an experienced DUI defense lawyer in Davie who understands the value of experienced legal representation. State statistics show about 2,000 motorists a year are convicted of drunk driving in Broward County. However, these charges are often defensible – particularly if you are facing a first offense. And the tiered nature of Florida’s drunk driving penalties means fighting a first offense is critical to protecting your long-term freedom and your right to drive.

Probable cause for the traffic stop, the training and conduct of officers involved and the results of field-sobriety and breathalyzer examinations are all issues that can be raised in your defense.

The Ansara Law Firm defend clients facing all types of serious misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

Felony drug charges are another area where an experienced defense can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. Some states – including the 17 that have legalized marijuana for medical purposes – have progressive drug laws. Florida is not one of those states. Most drug charges – whether for possession, trafficking or sale – are considered felonies punishable by prison time.

The availability of drug court or alternative sentencing measures is something to discuss with your Davie defense lawyer. In many cases, a plea bargain might be your best option. Here again, not all plea bargains are created equal – an experienced attorney will have the best chance of securing the best outcome possible in your case.

At The Ansara Law Firm, we believe in preparing each case for trial from the moment we agree to your defense representation. This permits us to negotiate from strength. In some cases, accepting a deal can be a great outcome that reduces or eliminates the penalties. In other cases, beating the charges in court offers a client the best option. In all cases, you can count on Attorney Ansara to keep you informed and to consult you at each stage of your case.
