Areas of Law Description

Criminal defense attorney David Edelstein's practice is limited exclusively to criminal defense in both state and federal courts. He regularly represents clients in Miami as well as other cities and counties throughout the state of Florida.

- Drug Crimes

If you have been arrested for a drug crime in Florida, a lot is at stake. Even a conviction for possessing a small amount of marijuana can have lasting consequences. Not only can a drug crime conviction affect your future employment, it can also result in your driverís license being suspended.

- Child Pornography

If you or a loved one has been approached by law enforcement investigating child pornography it is extremely important to exercise your right to have an attorney present before answering any questions. Most, but not all cases begin with an agent or detective contacting the defendant to conduct a voluntary interview, sometimes after a search warrant has been executed.

- Insurance Fraud

Insurance fraud can take many forms. Many types of insurance fraud are related to motor vehicles and false claims for accidents. Recently the state legislature has passed stricter laws severely punishing these types of offenses. Other types of insurance fraud relate to allegations of false statements, fraudulent medical claims, and burning to defraud an insurer.

- Shoplifting

Shoplifting is charged as either petit or grand theft under Florida Statute 812.014 (see below), depending on the amount. If the value of the alleged stolen merchandise is less than $100 in value, the defendant is charged with petit theft in the second degree, a second degree misdemeanor.

- Juvenile Crimes

The purpose of Florida's juvenile justice system is to protect society more effectively by attempting to rehabilitate, not just punish, children who commit crimes. Children in Florida are persons under age 18. Juvenile courts in Florida work with law enforcement, prosecution and defense attorneys, and the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) in devising rehabilitation plans for children in trouble with the law.


Driving while under the influence of alcoholic beverages or a controlled substance is one of the most serious traffic violations you can commit. In fact, it is classified as a traffic crime and in some circumstances a misdemeanor, or under more limited circumstances, even a felony.

- Assault

An "assault" is an intentional, unlawful threat by word or act to do violence to the person of another, coupled with an apparent ability to do so, and doing some act which creates a well-founded fear in such other person that such violence is imminent.

- Child Abuse

A person who knowingly or willfully abuses a child without causing great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement to the child commits a felony of the third degree.

- Robbery

Robbery means the taking of money or other property which may be the subject of larceny from the person or custody of another, with intent to either permanently or temporarily deprive the person or the owner of the money or other property, when in the course of the taking there is the use of force, violence, assault, or putting in fear.

- Burglary

Burglary means entering or remaining in a dwelling, a structure, or a conveyance with the intent to commit an offense therein, unless the premises are at the time open to the public or the defendant is licensed or invited to enter or remain.
