      Very personal and kept me informed from the very beginning. I had never been to court before and I was scared to death. Just talking with Mr Meltzer over the phone helped me relax. Choosing a lawyer is a very important decision. I''d spoken with almost 20 lawyers before I call this office. I knew immediately that I wanted to be represented by this law firm. I can''t thank Mr Meltzer enough for everything he and his team has done for me.

      I was charged with Domestic Violence which put my medical license in serious jeopardy. Not sure how, but in my state of absolute panic, Larry''s supportive demeanor and unyielding confidence turned a hopeless mess into a probable success Larry was insanely persistent and my case was dropped. I owe this man more than mere monetary compensation. He is magnificent

      Larry and Stephen are the best around!! I have used Larry multiple times and I’m never disappointed. He’s great at what he does. Very prompt with answering phone calls and text messages. Kept me informed throughout the whole process. Anytime I need legal help in the future I will definitely will be calling them and I recommend them to anyone who needs legal help.

      From the first second I spoke with Steve and Larry I was treated as a priority. I was charged with driving on a suspended license and had a warrant. Within one day the warrant was lifted, and shortly after that my case was dismissed. Communication was excellent. Thanks for making this a smooth process that was over and done with without me having to do a thing.

    Knowledgeable Representation At Every Step Of The Process

    Being arrested is incredibly distressing. However, it is only the first of a series of events, including multiple hearings, interviews, filings, and more. A single misstep in any direction could make the difference between liberty and imprisonment.

    The Constitution guarantees you the right to legal counsel so that you can make informed choices, fully aware of all your legal rights. At Meltzer & Bell, P.A., we advise your options and help you understand your best opportunities.

    Do not speak to law enforcement officers when you’re a suspect; prosecutors can twist everything you say or do into evidence against you. Instead, exercise your constitutional right to remain silent and let us do the talking.

    Finding Every Option For Your Defense

    Police also must have sufficient cause to stop or arrest you. To stop you on the streets of Broward County, they must have reasonable suspicion. To pull you over in a car, they must have probable cause. Your lawyer can challenge the stop that leads to your arrest.

    There are other tactics your lawyer may use, as well: Questioning the scientific rigor of the tests used in a DUI case or vigorously cross-examining the state’s witnesses to show the inconsistencies in their stories.

    At Meltzer & Bell, P.A., we will employ any legal means to represent you and fight for the best result in your case.
