St Augustine Criminal Defense Attorney

One of the most difficult and life-altering events that can take place in a person’s life is being arrested and charged with a crime. Even the process of being accused of a crime and questioned by law enforcement is a very stressful event that should not be confronted alone. Curtis Fallgatter has extensive legal experience on both sides of the law, first as a federal prosecutor and then as a proven and successful criminal defense attorney representing those accused of a crime. Lisa Varon has been defending the rights of those accused of crimes for more than 25 years. Nothing can take the place of sound legal counsel and aggressive representation from experienced criminal law attorneys who have represented hundreds of clients facing criminal charges.

Sometimes good people make bad choices and find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Our team of criminal defense attorneys listens to you, investigates the events leading to your arrest, and implements a successful defense strategy. Not having the most qualified and experienced attorney defending your rights could have life-altering consequences on your future.  A criminal conviction affects your freedom, future employment opportunities, housing, freedom of movement, and economic earnings. Take every precaution possible by hiring an attorney capable of defending your rights. At the Law offices of Fallgatter Catlin & Varon, P.A., we have both a former prosecutor and a former public defender with vast criminal defense experience ready to fight for you.

Know Your Rights

If you have been arrested, you have the Constitutional right to remain silent and to have an attorney present when you answer questions. These Miranda rights are guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  Your decision to remain silent or to have an attorney present cannot be used against you at trial.  If you waive these rights, you may make incriminating statements that law enforcement will use to convict you.  If you have been accused of a crime, ask to speak to an attorney before answering any questions or making any statements to law enforcement about your case.  Tell the officer your attorney is Curtis Fallgatter, and promptly retain Fallgatter Catlin & Varon, PA.

The attorney you choose can make the difference in a successful outcome. The opportunity to have Fallgatter Catlin and Varon represent you in St. Johns County is only a phone call away.
