Boca Raton Criminal Defense Attorney

Criminal charges, no matter how minor-seeming, can have significant impact on your rights as well as your representation. As an experienced Boca Raton criminal defense lawyer, I, Douglas J. Rudman, am dedicated to providing strong and aggressive representation for clients throughout South Florida.

I represent clients from all walks of life, including Returning Veterans who may benefit from programs available through Florida's "veteran's court." I also assist clients who qualify for Record Sealing and Expungement.

Experienced Misdemeanor Defense

Misdemeanor offenses may often be considered "minor charges" but nothing could be further from the truth. Even misdemeanor convictions can result in serious consequences, from heavy fines to possible incarceration for some offenses. I provide aggressive representation against misdemeanor charges such as:

  • Drunk driving (DUI) charges and other minor Traffic crimes
  • Shoplifting
  • Petty theft
  • Writing worthless checks
  • Other types of financial fraud
  • Trespassing
  • Domestic violence
  • Juvenile crimes
  • Probation violations
  • Violating injunctive orders imposed by a restraining order
  • Assault or battery
  • Voyeurism
  • Minor drug possession
  • Resisting arrest
  • Contracting without a license
  • Making false 911 calls

I also regularly defend clients charged with  Traffic Tickets including, but not limited to, Speeding, Licensing Issues and other Moving Violations.

Strong Representation Against Felony Charges

Felony charges involve more significant sentencing requirements, and often involve crimes of greater magnitude than misdemeanors. Some misdemeanor cases can become felonies depending on the specific nature of the case. I defend clients facing felony charges such as:

  • Repeat DUI offenses
  • Theft and other property crimes
    • Grand theft
    • Robbery and armed robbery
    • Burglary
    • Dealing in stolen property
    • White collar crimes
    • Identity theft
    • Forgery
  • Serious violent crimes
    • Aggravated assault
    • Aggravated battery
    • Homicide/murder
    • Manslaughter
    • Child abuse/battery of a child
  • Sex crimes
    • Rape/statutory rape
    • Date rape
    • Sexual battery
    • Stalking and aggravated stalking
    • Cyberstalking
  • Firearm offenses and weapons violations
    • Conceal-and-carry violations
  • Felony drug crimes
    • Drug trafficking
    • Possession of drug paraphernalia
    • Prescription drug crimes
  • Felony juvenile crimes

Defending Against Federal Charges

Federal crimes are those that violate federal laws and are prosecuted in federal court. Federal charges typically have significant penalties and strict sentencing guidelines, so experienced representation is necessary to protect your rights. I defend clients facing federal charges such as:

  • Health care fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Federal white collar crimes
  • Racketeering
  • Organized crime
  • Federal drug crimes such as conspiracy, trafficking and others
  • Felon in possession of a weapon
  • Other federal weapons charges
