Our History

About Our Firm

An arrest, or criminal charges of any kind, even if “just” a misdemeanor is a terrible experience for anyone, especially if it’s the first time. It’s a life-changing event, especially with the prospect of legal trouble becoming a part of your public record, affecting everything from job prospects to future or current personal relationships.

In what can seem like a bleak situation, our firm provides help, and more importantly, hope. The law can be a complex matter, but Anthony Anise knows how to navigate through the confusion and lead you to the best possible outcome for your case. After years as a public defender, and handling more than 1,500 cases, he’s seen nearly everything prosecution can throw at a defendant – and how to defend against it.

We Offer Strong Criminal Defense

People facing legal challenges need and deserve a strong defense, and that’s what we provide. From the initial free consultation to the very end, we’ll listen to your circumstances, intervene with court authorities, and advocate for your best interests. More than that, we solve problems through innovative tactics, giving even the toughest circumstance the best chance for improvement it can possibly obtain.

We cover a wide range of cases, including:

Assault and battery

This charge does not necessarily come from a violent event. Simply raising your fist in someone’s direction can be considered assault. Any physical contact can be construed as battery, no matter how gentle. We’ll fit the defense to the circumstances.

Disorderly conduct

An often vague charge given when no other charges will fit. Our firm can help you prove your conduct was lawful.

Driver’s license violations

Transportation is an important factor in everyone’s life. We will fight for you to retain your right to drive.

Drug crimes

Possession of drugs, especially with intent to sell, can carry some heavy penalties. We’ll work out better options if you find yourself charged with this offense.


DUI law is a complicated matter and a serious one. Let us help you defend yourself, no matter what the circumstances of your charges may be.

Probation violations

There are many ways to violate probation, some of them incredibly simple. You’re going to need an ally in court to avoid possible further sentencing, including revocation of probation. Our experience can be used for your benefit.

Resisting arrest

You don’t have to be violent or physical to be charged with resisting arrest, but even if you are, we’ll negotiate with the judge and prosecution to give you a better outcome than first imagined.

Theft violations

Possession is not, in fact, 9/10 of the law. But there are valid defenses to charges of theft, and we can help you use them to prove your innocence or mitigate any legal consequences you would have otherwise suffered.

If you’re a person who needs someone who thinks outside the box, and that looks for the best possible solution, not simply the easiest, call our firm today for your free consultation. You’ll get exactly the help you need, quickly and efficiently. We serve the Ft. Lauderdale, Aventura, and Miami areas.
