Criminal Defense Practice Areas

Brian F. Greenwald, P.A. offers quality criminal defense in a wide variety of misdemeanor and felony cases. For over 15 years, we have represented thousands of clients in just about every area of criminal defense possible. 


Misdemeanors are criminal offenses punishable by up to one year in the county jail. Although they are less severe than felony offenses, the consequences of a misdemeanor conviction can be burdensome and long-lasting. Some common misdemeanor offenses include:


  • Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

  • Driving While License Suspended

  • Petit Theft

  • Possession Cannabis

  • Simple Battery

  • Domestic Violence

  • Probation Violations


The list above is non-exhaustive, and there are many more misdemeanor offenses out there. Our lawyers have experience representing thousands of clients charged with all types of misdemeanors for over a decade. 

Misdemeanor offenses are under the jurisdiction of the County Court, and if you are charged with only misdemeanor offenses, then your case will be assigned to a County Court Judge. Depending on where you were arrested, your case could wind up at any one of four different courthouses here in Broward County.

Our lawyers operate throughout the county at every courthouse location and have defended cases in front of every single criminal judge in Broward. We are in the courts every day fighting for our clients' rights.


Felonies are crimes punishable by incarceration in the Florida State Prison for more than a year. Like misdemeanors, there are different categories, each with their own range of penalties.


Felonies are more serious crimes, and are treated as such in the criminal justice system. These offenses are generally assigned to prosecutors with more experience, and involve significantly more work than your average misdemeanor.  


Don't be afraid to ask whoever you consider hiring what type of experience they have in defending these types of charges. The State Attorney's Office takes these charges seriously and assigns experienced attorneys to prosecute these offenses. You need to hire an attorney with plenty of experience defending these types of serious charges.

Mr. Greenwald has been defending people charged with felony offenses for the majority of his career. He is a proven trial attorney with the experience you need to resolve your case.
