Richard G. Salzman, has been practicing law since 1986. His experience in the legal field has been an extensive and impressive one. In 2005, after 18 years of practicing Corporate Law for a National privately-held Company, Mr. Salzman decided to pursue his passion for criminal law by dedicating his practice to defending people accused of committing crimes. He is presently the Managing Attorney for the Florida DUI Defense Law Firm of Richard G. Salzman, P.A. based in Hollywood, Florida.
His boutique law firm, located in Oaks Office Center on Sheridan Street, represents individuals accused of misdemeanors and felonies all across Miami-Dade, Broward and the Palm Beaches, with a west coast Regional office located in Naples, Florida. Mr. Salzman’s practice is 100% privately-retained Criminal Defense with a particular emphasis on Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Boating Under the Influence (BUI), Alcohol and Other Drug Crimes (AOD), “First Offender” Crimes and Grand Theft Crimes (GT).
Mr. Salzman has enjoyed a winning record in Criminal Defense litigation since starting his Criminal Defense practice in 2005. In addition to successfully litigating Criminal Defense cases, Mr. Salzman has a winning record fighting Criminal Appeals for his clients in Florida’s 4th District Court of Appeals (4th DCA). In one notable Appellate case handled by Mr. Salzman, a client’s pending Deportation proceedings were dismissed because his criminal case was won by Mr. Salzman on Appeal.
In 2011, Mr. Salzman began focusing on Alcohol and Other Drug Crimes (AOD). This part of Mr. Salzman’s practice emphasizes pre-trial interventions; court endorsed Treatment Programs; rehabilitation and relapse prevention as an alternative to the criminal justice system.
Mr. Salzman believes that a person should not be judged by their worst act and that even the best of us can make poor choices or have a lapse in judgment. If the rights of the most evil people living among us do not matter, then it’s only a matter of time before each of us loses our protection under the law. Even Casey Anthony has a right to a vigorous defense under the law.
Very often someone will come up to Mr. Salzman and ask “How can you defend those people?” His answer is simple. “As a criminal defense lawyer, I’m forced to deal with some of the most contemptible people on earth, people who don’t know right from wrong, people who will lie in court just to get what they want, people who don’t care who gets hurt along the way. It’s my job – my sworn duty – as a criminal defense lawyer, to protect my clients from those people.”
Ask Mr. Salzman why his passion is criminal defense and he will tell you “my practice is based on the belief that you were arrested when you shouldn’t have been.” Mr. Salzman’s motto is “I’m a Criminal Defense Lawyer… when you are charged with a crime, I am your last line of defense. I am dedicated to Defending your Freedom!”
Mr. Salzman is also an experienced Family Law attorney. His areas of concentration include Divorce, Separation Agreements, Custody and Visitation issues, Alimony, Child Support and Support Modification issues. Focusing on a collaborative approach, Mr. Salzman helps his clients reach financial and parenting agreements by acting as an advocate in protecting clients’ interests and legal rights, and by acting as a counselor by offering his clients the personal support, attention and consideration he feels his clients deserve.
