Attorney Profile

Steven G. Casanova Esq. was employed with the Brevard County State Attorney's office up until 1998. During that time, he prosecuted thousands of criminal cases including hundreds of DUI cases. No longer a prosecutor, Mr. Casanova vigorously defends the accused in all cases ranging from misdemeanors to serious felonies. He practices in both State and Federal Courts. His experience with Federal drug trafficking cases, drug possession and sale cases, aggravated domestic battery cases and all misdemeanors and felonies gives him a perspective on criminal law that can provide you with a significant advantage in today's legal system.

Mr. Casanova is a member of the Florida Bar Association, The Brevard County Bar Association, The National Association of Criminal Defense Attorneys, The Association of Trial Lawyers of America, lifetime member of The Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, The National College for DUI Defense, and the Vassar B. Carlton Inn of Court. In addition, he is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Central Florida teaching Criminal Law. He is also admitted to the United States Federal Court Middle District of Florida, and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals located in Atlanta, Georgia. He is also a certified breath test maintenance technician and Intoxilyzer 5000 operator.

Mr. Casanova is a first generation American, bilingual in Spanish, and a resident of Brevard County for over 30 years. His family has resided in Florida since the 1930's.

Criminal Defense F.A.Q.'s

Criminal Defense F.A.Q.'s

I Have Been Arrested For a Crime In Florida. What Are My Rights?

You have the right to an attorney, the right to remain silent, the right to know the crimes you have been charged with, the right to examine the evidence the state has against you, the right to confront your accusers and cross-examine witnesses, and the right to a trial by jury.

> Back to Top

How Does The Criminal Justice System Work?

After you are arrested, the State Attorney's Office will review the arresting officer's narrative description of your alleged offense that led to your arrest and make a determination as to whether formal charges are to be filed. If formal charges are filed, a judge will set arraignment, pretrial and trial dates.

> Back to Top

Am I Entitled to a Bond?

In many cases you will be entitled to a bond, and it is possible to bring your case before a judge and have a bond set or lowered.

> Back to Top

What Is Arraignment?

An arraignment involves your appearance before a judge. The judge will tell you officially what the charges against you are at your first arraignment. You can enter a plea of not guilty, no contest or guilty at this arraignment. The Judge also sets the dates for your case to go to pretrial and trial. You have the right to be arraigned, typically within two court days after being arrested.

Do I Need To Attend The Arraignment?

All court hearings are mandatory. It may be possible to file a motion to excuse you from your arraignment, however.

> Back to Top

How Can I Find Out The Evidence Against Me?

Once you have been arraigned, you are entitled to all evidence the state intends to use against you. During this process, witnesses may be interviewed, allegations against you may be investigated, and your defense strategy will be solidified.
