HUGE DEFENSE VERDICT!

FEDERAL CRIMINAL COURT- (Miami)
The Federal Prosecutors have a 98% Conviction Rate, but Matt Ladd and Carlos Fleites secured an acquittal for their client who was accused of importing 900lbs of Cocaine into the country.

"He may have been on the boat, but the government couldn't prove he knew anything about drugs except for the testimony of their flipped witnesses. That's right! The government had three eye witnesses that took deals and testified against our client, and we still beat the charges. Winning was definitely worth the fight! " USA v. Martinez, Feb. 2020

"Mathew Ladd is an excellent attorney who really goes above and beyond for his client"

I had the pleasure of working with Matthew as my attorney. First and foremost I have to thank him and his team for the excellent work. He has gone above and beyond, not only in what was asked but also educating me in things I was unaware of. I would without a doubt recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone who is professional, amicable and diligent in his line of work.Again thank you so much.

I’ve known Matt for over 8 years and have used him several times from traffic tickets to getting my money returned from a landlord. I’ve referred family and friends because I know he’s the guy for everything from traffic tickets, state and criminal defense, divorce, filing bankruptcy and the list goes on. He’s the first guy that comes to mind because I know he’ll get the job done. Thank you Matt for always having my back. You are the best of the best!

I cannot recommend Matthew enough. We had a horrible ordeal with a corrupt landlord in Miami and her deceitful property manager that dragged on for months. Matthew was so thorough, knowledgeable, and patient that we eventually let him lead all communication and correspondence. He was resourceful and prompt to reply and after all was said and done, we were able to count on him to resolve all of our issues justly and promptly. There is NO WAY we could have navigated this legal nightmare without him. He demonstrated care and professionalism and most importantly fought for what was right. He has restored my faith in what lawyers can do for clients.

As always Matt Ladd and his staff have done a phenomenal job in getting my ticket dismissed. Everyone told me it would be impossible for this ticket to be dismissed; but he did it. Professional and friendly staff.

I wish to commend Matt Ladd's recent successful disposition of a traffic violation on my behalf. I am an attorney myself with an area of practice in professional licensure. Over the past year and a half, I have had licensure cases with overlapping criminal law considerations. Matt Ladd's insights and input on these issues have been invaluable.

I have been able to refer not only myself, but my family for Matt's services. He has been able to address traffic tickets quick and easy. Its so hard to find a lawyer in Miami that will answer his phone and return your calls. It's a pleasure to work with him! I highly recommend him!

OUR SERVICES

We focus our practice on litigation, both criminal defense and civil matters.  We apply the same philosophy that it takes to beat a murder charge to getting you maximum compensation in an injury case.  We believe that to win, we have to master the facts, always be prepared, and never shy away from going to trial if that is what it takes to get you the maximum compensation for the injury that you suffered.
