Dustin Tischler, who was born in West Palm Beach, Florida and raised in Spring Lake, New Jersey, graduated with honors from Florida State University with a B.A. in Finance in 2002. Dustin subsequently attended the University of Miami School of Law where he earned his Juris Doctor Degree with highest honors in 2006.
While in law school, Dustin received the “Book Award” for most outstanding student in both Advanced Criminal Procedure and Fourth Amendment Search and Seizure Seminar. During this time, he also worked as a certified legal intern with the Miami-Dade Public Defender’s Office. Dustin was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2007 and has based his legal practice in Florida ever since.
Following graduation, Dustin accepted a position with the Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney, where he prosecuted thousands of cases over a span of three years. As an assistant state attorney, Dustin tried approximately 40 jury trials, worked countless bench trials, and handled all types of criminal matters, including drug trafficking, armed robbery, sexual battery, murder, and driving under the influence (DUI) arrests. In 2009, Dustin left the Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney to pursue the practice of criminal defense and family law.
Florida Statute is divided into two sections, civil and criminal.
In all civil cases “plaintiff” means any party seeking affirmative relief whether plaintiff, “defendant” means any party against whom such relief is sought.
If it is a Florida criminal offense, there are four steps: (1) first appearance (2) arraignment (3) discovery (4) trial. At each step we do our best to get you the best result.
The major differences between the potential outcomes in state and federal criminal cases are the lost of rights and sentencing guidelines. In the federal court system, statutory guidelines dictate minimum and maximum sentences. More importantly, judges are given wider discretion in giving out punishments, while prosecutors generally seek the highest possible penalty, putting defendants at an extreme disadvantage. The deck is stacked against you when you are charged. We have the skills and resources to even the deck and preserve your freedom and your rights.
