Richard Ansara Attorney at Law



Located slightly inland of the Atlantic in Broward County, Miramar is a city of 120,000 named after the Miramar District in Havana, Cuba.

Miramar Defense Attorney Richard Ansara represents clients facing criminal charges in Miramar and the surrounding areas, including Pembroke Pines, Hollywood and West Park.

The Ansara Law Firm represent defendants facing misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

An experienced Miramar DUI defense attorney should always be consulted when a motorist is facing charges of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Few (aside from those who have faced the process) understand how disruptive a drunk driving conviction can be to their life. Job loss, skyrocketing insurance premiums, drivers’ license suspensions, mandatory treatment and probation are all commonplace. Jail time is also a frequent penalty.

There are many ways an experienced defense attorney can fight a drunk driving charge. Probable cause for the traffic stop and the results of breathalyzer and field-sobriety tests are common areas of challenge. In fact, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement reports only about half of those charged with drunk driving are convicted of the charge during any given year.

Theft crimes are also among the most common criminal charges in the State of Florida.

  • A property crime is committed every 47 seconds.
  • A burglary every 3 minutes.
  • A robbery every 21 minutes.
  • An auto theft every 13 minutes.

How you are charged can go a long way toward determining the penalties you face. The difference between burglary and robbery, for instance, is significant. Robbery involves theft through force or the threat of force. Burglary typically means taking items from a structure.

Authorities also often attempt to bully relatives or friends with charges or receiving stolen property as a way to force cooperation. Inflating the value of stolen items or filing multiple charges are both also common law enforcement tactics.

It’s important to remember that law enforcement can charge you with whatever it wants. What matters is whether you are convicted in a court of law. Your best bet is always to contact an experienced Miramar criminal defense lawyer at the earliest possible stage of such cases. In most cases, giving the prosecutor time to build your case and an experienced defense attorney time to pick it apart can make thinks look a lot different than they did on the day officers were spouting threats and filing charges.

We understand cost is always a factor in choosing a defense law firm. And we have a number of convenient pay options. Trusting your defense to an overworked public defender is never the best option. At The Ansara Law Firm, we believe in providing the best legal representation possible to each and every client we accept the responsibility of representing.
