Pembroke Pines

Home to more than 150,000 residents, Pembroke Pines is the second-largest city in Broward County. First inhabited by American Indians an estimated 4,000 years ago, the town started life as an area of dairy farms. It began to grow after World War II as retiring servicemen returned home and was officially incorporated in 1960.

Pembroke Pines Defense Attorney Richard Ansara represents clients facing criminal charges in Pembroke Pines and the surrounding areas, including Miramar, Miami Gardens, Weston, Davie, Hollywood and North Miami Beach.

As an experienced Pembroke Pines DUI defense attorney, Richard Ansara is dedicated to helping motorists fight these cases and retain their rights to drive. Under Florida law, you have just 10 days to request an administrative hearing to contest the loss of your driver’s license. By handling both the administrative hearing and the criminal case, your attorney has the best chance of beating the charges and forcing a positive outcome.

The Ansara Law Firm handles a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony charges, including:

Domestic violence is another area where an aggressive defense is vital. The state filed more than 7,000 domestic violence charges in Broward County in 2011, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Pembroke Pines Defense Lawyer Richard Ansara understands these charges can run the gamut, from simple stalking to murder. Other domestic-violence-related charges filed by the state include manslaughter, rape, sodomy, aggravated assault, aggravated stalking and threats/intimidation.

And an injunction for protection against domestic violence can prevent a defendant from even returning home or seeing their children. A conviction will also typically have a negative impact on divorce and child custody cases.

Today’s zero-tolerance policy among law enforcement means far too many of these cases are marginal at best. Unfair arrest is quite common. Given the stigma and penalties associated with a domestic violence conviction, a thorough defense is critical to protecting your rights.

Pembroke Pines juvenile defense is a must for teens charged with a crime. FDLE reports more than 8,000 juveniles a year are arrested in Broward County. Too often, parents think a juvenile’s criminal record will disappear in adulthood. Or that throwing them at the court’s mercy will teach a lesson.

At The Ansara Law Firm, we believe teenagers are best served by experienced legal representation. Too often, a criminal record follows a young person into adulthood. An experienced attorney can also work to address underlying issues preventing a teen from getting on the right track. Working with the court, and defending a child’s rights to a sentence that is constructive rather than punitive, can make a world of difference.
