Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description

- Traffic Offenses
Our experienced attorneys provide representation and defense for traffic tickets and criminal traffic violations, from minor infractions to misdemeanor and felony offenses. We handle traffic violations throughout the State of Florida, from Miami and the Florida Keys, to Palm Beach and Orlando.
- DUI Defense
Our law office has the resources and abilities to take on DUI cases of all kinds, no matter how complex. Particularly if you have been accused of a drug crime or violent crime in association with a DUI, or if another person was seriously injured in a DUI accident such as a hit-and-run or vehicular homicide case, you need strong, aggressive and experienced lawyers on your side. We understand how seriously an impaired driving arrest can affect your life. We will put every resource behind your case to help you avoid unnecessary license suspension, hefty fines or jail time in association with a DUI arrest.
- Criminal Defense
Our lawyers take an experienced and personal approach to criminal defense. We work to make sure your rights are protected and that every avenue of your defense is aggressively pursued. Our office has the resources, the experience, and the attitude to zealously defend your rights, fully review the facts and find weaknesses in the state's case against you.
• Domestic Violence
For domestic violence charges, your lawyer will need experience employing a broad range of effective strategies. Our attorneys are committed to meeting our clients' needs and we have the capacity to handle the most complex domestic assault cases. Being charged with domestic assault, child abuse or another form of domestic violence will often have an immediate impact. If a restraining order or order of protection is taken out against you, it is possible to lose access to your home, your family, your kids, and your right to purchase a firearm. Let us get you the legal protections you need.
Fighting a murder charge, or an indictment on any degree of homicide, requires an in-depth understanding of local court procedures and how the district judges have interpreted case law and made decisions about relevant cases. It is critically important that your attorney understands how sentencing guidelines affect the case at every step of the process. Often a successful defense relies on fighting for the maximum procedural advantages. At Ferrer Shane, PL, in Miami, Florida, our attorneys have experience handling cases involving murder and homicide charges. We have the experience, the attitude, and the knowledge to handle the complex details of crimes involving the death penalty and severe sentencing guidelines.
• 10-20-Life Crimes
If you are facing criminal charges in which there is a possibility that a 10-20-Life supplemental sentence may be added, you need serious legal defense representation. The attorneys at Ferrer Shane, PL, understand strategies that prosecutors use when pursuing supplemental sentences. Often, prosecutors add the 10-20-Life charge as a way to protect themselves from diluting their original charges in a plea arrangement. The fact is, though, an inappropriate charge should never be allowed to stand, and we fight aggressively to reduce or eliminate the 10-20-Life connection.
• Animal Abuse, Pet Owner Negligence
If you are facing charges of animal abuse, cruelty to animals or negligence, seek legal defense protection as soon as possible. The attorneys of Ferrer Shane, PL, have experience protecting the rights of people wrongfully accused of animal-related charges in communities throughout South Florida. Every judge has a different perspective about animal rights and the responsibilities of farmers and pet owners. Because our firm has experience in all courts throughout the region, we understand the procedures, and make it our goal to make sure you get the best possible outcome for your charges.
• Bond Hearings
After you are charged with a criminal offense, you will progress quickly through a criminal justice system that will seem bewildering and frustrating. If you are facing a misdemeanor or felony that does not include aggravated homicide, your charges will probably be considered "bondable." That simply means that you will be given a chance to pay bail money to remain free pending your court date.
• Minor in Possession of Alcohol
If your minor-aged child has been caught in possession of alcohol in Miami or South Florida, talk to an attorney at the Miami criminal defense law firm of Ferrer Shane, PL. Our attorneys have experience representing families in court matters relating to juvenile crimes in Dade County and the juvenile courts in counties throughout South Florida.
• Drug Offenses
At Ferrer Shane, PL, our defense attorneys bring a proven record against a wide range of drug offenses and a winning attitude to every case from misdemeanor possession to felony trafficking. We are aggressive in defending your case and review all evidence, police procedure, witness testimony and the strength of the case against you for any weakness, any flaw and any opportunity to win.
• Juvenile Crimes
At the Law Offices of Ferrer Shane, PL, we work to make sure that the mistakes juveniles are accused of today don't create extreme burdens in the future. We provide the same level of tenacious and aggressive representation to juvenile clients that we bring to the most serious adult cases. Whether we have to fight to make sure the crime stays in juvenile courts or we need to petition to have charges reduced or dismissed, we put every strategy behind your case. Our criminal defense lawyers put their experience, ability and attitude to work, and, depending on the case, we work to keep our juvenile clients out of detention and free of a lasting criminal record.
• Sex Crimes

Florida Drivers Get Hundreds of Thousands of Speeding Tickets
A two-year average of more than 300,000 tickets just for speeding makes one wonder whether Florida drivers simply have more of a need for speed than drivers in other states. Is there something about Florida that the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) issued 317,936 speeding citations in 2010? According to FHP statistics, that number was a little less than the number in 2009 (which was 321,777).Read Article
Safety or Profit? Red-Light Cameras in Florida
Increasing the length of a yellow light, along with an "all stop" cycle, would do more to increase safety at intersections than red light cameras do. In March 2012, Pascoe County Judge Anne Wansboro ruled in favor of Thomas Filippone, who, after having travelled through an intersection that was equipped with a red-light camera, received a $158 traffic ticket in the mail.Read Article
