Speaker 1: Hello. My name is Robert Gluck. I'm a former prosecutor and I've been a trial lawyer here in Florida since 1989. Some people have asked me when they're trying to decide who they should hire to represent them if they're charged with a crime anywhere in the state of Florida. Does it really matter what experience my lawyer has? Does it matter if my lawyer is a former prosecutor or if they're a former public defender?
Well, I would suggest that if your lawyer is a former assistant state attorney in any county within the state of Florida, that they have invaluable experience that can help you get a better result for your case. They're going to have the ability to walk into a courtroom and have that comfort level in talking with other prosecutors who will give them the respect that they deserve because they are a former prosecutor. They will have the ability to deal with the judges and deal with the other lawyers involved in your case, and to deal with the police officers. You get a little bit more respect out of a police officer whose deposition you're taking if he knows that you were a former assistant state attorney.
Sometimes, having a lawyer who is a former prosecutor will just make that bit of difference that might mean the difference between you going to jail or not going to jail. Why take that chance? If you're going to pay a lawyer to represent you, why not make sure that they've got all the possible experience and they've got all the resources in their toolbox so when they go to court and they reach for their tools, they've got one that'll keep you out of jail. I would suggest the best tool in my toolbox is that I was a former prosecutor and that really does go a long way in my practice.
