The Law Offices of Gilbert and Smallman focus primarily on a wide variety of criminal defense cases in Broward County and Miami-Dade County. The partners, Harris Gilbert and Andrew Smallman, worked together handling cases at the Broward County Public Defender’s Office. In that capacity, they obtained the skills needed to aggressively and successfully defend any type of client. In 2007 Harris Gilbert moved into the private practice of Miami / Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense so each attorney can spend more time on their client’s case, focusing on pre-trial motions and dealing with the State Attorney in order to get charges dropped or reduced.
If we are forced to go to trial, you can be assured that both attorneys have extensive courtroom experience in criminal defense in all courts in Miami Dade and Broward Counties. We will take all the steps necessary to insure that the judge and/or jury in your case is going to hear your side, including any evidence that we have been able to gather on your behalf.

If you or a loved one has been arrested for a Felony in Miami Dade County, the hiring of a Miami Criminal Lawyer in the early stages of the case is essential. When someone is arrested, they often think the charges they were arrested for are what they will be charged with in court. This is not always the case.
The Miami State Attorney’s Office has a pre filing unit that specifically reviews every Felony arrest to see if the charges have merit. This is where a knowledgeable Miami Criminal Lawyer comes into play. We are able to establish contact with the lawyer that will be reviewing the file. Once contact is established, a good Miami Criminal Lawyer will then prepare a detailed memorandum stating the facts of the case from the Defendant’s point of view. In addition, the memorandum will include legal arguments as to why the State Attorney should not file charges. Sometimes pictures, letters of recommendation and other exhibits are helpful as well.
There is no better way to dispose of a Miami criminal case than to have the State Attorney announce a “No Action” on the file. This means that the case will not be filed and the Defendant will not be prosecuted at that time. The Defendant is then free to leave and will be able to get their bond back without any court costs. It is still possible the State Attorney will choose to file the case at a later time if new information evolves, but most times once a “No Action” has been announced, the case is over.
