She helps clients, including those that need a Spanish speaking attorney throughout Volusia County, including Daytona Beach, DeLand, Deltona, and Orange City, FL.
Ms. Smith is considered among the top criminal lawyers in Volusia County. She earned her degree in law at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and Yale Law School. She was also one of the eight attorneys selected by the highly acclaimed attorney, Barry Scheck, to work on The Innocence Project. The Innocence Project has received national attention for its use of DNA evidence to reverse the convictions of those wrongly convicted for crimes they didn’t commit. Her experience has taught her the importance of uncovering the facts and being a strong advocate for the clients she represents.
In our legal system, all persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Unfortunately, all too often, individuals facing criminal charges don’t get the legal representation they need. Without a strong criminal attorney advocating on their behalf, individuals will be making decisions that will affect the rest of their life, including their freedom.
Florida has one of the strictest DUI laws in the country, which is why anyone charged with a DUI should have an experienced DUI attorney. Although the process may seem cut and dry, the state still has the burden to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. There are also legal obligations that state prosecutors must follow, and there may be extenuating circumstances that could result in the dismissal of your case.
The Law Office of Leanna J. Smith also has an experienced Spanish speaking attorney, Carlos Vidal-Collazo, who represents Spanish speakers that need a criminal defense lawyer. Attorney Vidal-Collazo is bilingual, fluent in both Spanish and English.
