Excellence in Criminal Defense.
Unmatched Service.
Creative Solutions.

A Florida criminal trial attorney for 27 years, Randy Berman has handled thousands of criminal cases, from first-degree murder and robbery to drug crimes and DUI. Our firm offers clients the wisdom and success accumulated over nearly three decades in the courtroom.

Excellence in Criminal Defense

As a former Assistant Public Defender and Assistant State Attorney, including service as chief of the Felony and Capital Crimes Divisions, Florida lawyer Randy Berman fully understands the nuances of the criminal justice system and how to make them work for his clients. He adheres to the highest standards and strives always to ensure his clients' rights are protected. Randy's skills are widely recognized; his cases receive media attention, and he is frequently asked by media representatives to offer legal opinions. Randy is also a certified expert in pharmacologic and other drug matters. His combined experience in these different fields of the legal community contributes to his success as a lawyer in South Florida. He offers representation to clients throughout Palm Beach County, including Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and surrounding areas.

Unmatched Service

Randy chose to be the sole practicing attorney in his law office instead of a Florida lawyer in a large firm because it permits him the opportunity to provide clients the utmost personal attention and an immediate response to their needs. Unlike other Florida lawyers who can't or won't provide you their undivided attention and leave you feeling like you're getting the run around, Randy Berman prides himself on answering his own phone and handles every aspect of a case, giving clients peace of mind with the knowledge that their concerns are being addressed.

Creative Solutions

Florida lawyer Randy Berman has a reputation in the South Florida legal community among other criminal defense attorneys and with the courts for using novel arguments to win cases. As a diligent and dedicated lawyer, Randy reviews every aspect of a case, looking for avenues of defense. Strategies are tailored to the facts of individual cases. Early intervention has resulted in police choosing not to file charges. He has won acquittals from juries and judges, obtained dismissals, and even achieved conviction reversals on appeal.

I founded this practice with the firm belief that I could provide clients with the best possible criminal defense while maintaining a high level of service.

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

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I contact an attorney if I’m under investigation but have not been charged?

Definitely. An attorney’s intervention at an early stage in a case can increase the odds of no charges or reduced charges being filed. An attorney also can protect your rights during the investigation.

Do I need a lawyer at my arraignment?

Your arraignment is your first appearance before a judge, at which time you enter a plea of guilty or not guilty. If you are represented by counsel, your attorney may attend your arraignment for you. If you have no attorney, you must personally attend your arraignment. As in all serious legal matters, being represented by counsel assists with protecting your rights.

What is the difference between felonies and misdemeanors?

A misdemeanor offense is a crime that is punished by a maximum of one year in the county jail. Felonies are more serious crimes which are punishable by more than one year in the state prison system.

Behaviors punishable only by fine, such as traffic tickets, are usually not considered crimes at all, but are infractions.

What does “presumed innocent" mean?'

In the United States, all criminal defendants are presumed to be innocent until, and if, they are proven guilty beyond and to the exclusion of every reasonable doubt. This requires the prosecutor to convince the jury of your guilt; you are not required to say, do or prove anything. I advise, however, that you put on a strong defense with the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney.

Am I entitled to a jury trial?

The U.S. Constitution gives a person accused of a crime punishable by a sentence longer than six months the right to be tried by a jury.

Should I testify in my own defense?

The 5th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gives you the right not to testify, and jurors will be told that they cannot assume anything negative if you decide to keep quiet.

You may want to remain silent at trial if you have previously been convicted of a crime, because a prosecutor may be able to bring out this information on cross-examination.

Additionally, jurors are unpredictable. They may harshly judge you if you have a poor demeanor, or they may not believe you, even if you are being truthful
