My successes and client referrals demonstrate that both goals are achievable.

Please Call: 561-866-5717

Criminal Defense Experience

My accomplishments are an outgrowth of my extensive trial experience. I have been working in the courtroom for 27 years. I was an Assistant Public Defender for Palm Beach County, serving as the Chief of the Felony Division and later as the Chief of the Capital Crimes (Homicide) Division. Many of the private criminal attorneys now practicing in Palm Beach County were originally trained or supervised by me. Because of this experience in major crimes, I am one of only a dozen attorneys in Palm Beach County who are qualified to sit as the first-chair attorney in First-Degree Capital Murder Cases.

I also worked as an Assistant State Attorney, handling a wide range of crimes. Because of my significant courtroom exposure, I am familiar with prosecutors and judges and the strategies that work best when dealing with them.

I undertake criminal appeals on a limited basis. In these matters, I collaborate with Louis G. Carres, a celebrated Criminal Appellate Attorney with over 30 years of experience and who has personally handled hundreds of criminal appeals throughout Florida. We have achieved noteworthy results in the appellate arena.

Scientific Experience

I am a Licensed Registered Pharmacist, which gives me a great advantage over most attorneys when scientific and medical issues arise.  This expertise allows me to effectively confront and challenge Government expert witnesses in all areas of forensic science, including: Medical Examiners, Crime Scene Technicians, Pharmacologists, Toxicologists, Doctors, Blood Spatter Experts, Fingerprint Experts, Firearms Experts, DNA Experts, Lab Technicians & Supervisors, Breathalyzer Operators and “Certified” Police Officers.

I have been declared an Expert Witness in pharmacy and drug matters in both the State Court and in the Federal Court for the Southern District of Florida, where I have testified for the defense. I make myself available to fellow attorneys on these and other criminal issues, including Prescription Fraud and Doctor Shopping.

Media Attention

My cases routinely draw media attention. Three homicide and one serial rapist defense cases have been profiled on Dale Hindman’s Body of Evidence television program. One of my murder trials was broadcast on Court TV. I later succeeded in obtaining a reversal of the conviction in that case.

Additionally, I am occasionally contacted by the local and national media to offer legal opinions on current issues of concern to the public, both on air and in print.

Practice Areas

Randy Berman practices in the following areas of law:

Violent Crimes

As a Florida attorney for violent crimes, Randy Berman handles every type of violent crime when you are facing:

  • First Second Third Degree Murder Charges
  • Manslaughter Charges
  • Aggravated Battery/Assault Charges
  • Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer, with or without violence
  • Armed/Strong-Arm Robbery Charges
  • Burglary Felony Charges/Misdemeanor Charges
  • Home Invasion Charges
  • Sexual Battery Charges
  • Domestic Battery Charges
  • Simple Battery/Criminal Assault Charges

Violent crimes carry the highest penalties in the criminal justice system and Florida is no exception. It is therefore vital to have an experienced attorney for battery, felony, or homicide (murder) charges tackle your case from several angles. If charges have yet to be filed, Florida murder lawyer Randy Berman will negotiate with police, federal agents and prosecutors in an effort to prevent or limit the charges that are ultimately filed. Simultaneously, we will review the evidence, including police reports, eyewitness statements and forensics, and conduct additional investigation as necessary.

If you are under investigation or have been charged for a crime of violence in the state of Florida, it is crucial that you find an experienced Florida attorney who specializes in representing clients who are facing murder charges, aggravated assault charges, criminal assault charges, burglary crime or felony robbery charges as most violent crimes can carry mandatory prison time if convicted.

Randy Berman is a Florida attorney experienced in handling violent crimes cases and skilled at defense of felony, murder, and assault charges. There are ways that he can help defend your constitutional rights. You will be given an honest analysis of every available alternative, including plea agreements and trial. If trial is the option, we will tailor a defense strategy to suit the facts of your case.

Because of Randy's expertise in pharmaceutical matters, he is often able to successfully challenge forensic and expert medical evidence.

As a prosecutor, public defender and in private practice, our office has handled thousands of violent crimes cases and taken innumerable cases to trial. Randy Berman is one of only a dozen attorneys in Palm Beach County, Florida who are qualified to sit as the first-chair attorney in first-degree capital murder cases.

There simply is no substitute for this type of experience when your future hangs in the balance.

Results:

  • October 2007 - After announcing the state of Florida was ready to go to trial against our client on a burglary with battery charge, with three eyewitnesses, the state dismissed the charges just prior to trial.

  • A man who faced murder charges was convicted by a jury only of manslaughter for shooting his wife after she called 911 to report he tried to strangle her. On appeal, we obtained a reversal because the trial judge erred in excluding evidence that would corroborate his assertion that the wife faked the strangulation.

  • A car-jacker who was facing life in prison and had eight eyewitnesses testify against him was sentenced to only five years in prison.

  • An accused individual faced robbery charges for burglary of a convenience store and murder charges for the death of the clerk and was acquitted after we presented a plausible explanation about why he lied to police about not having been in the store when his fingerprints were identified on the front counter.
