Naples Criminal Defense Attorneys

Have you been charged with a crime?

Do not face your charges alone.  Naples Criminal Defense Attorneys Derek Verderamo and Juan Escobar want to stand at your side and protect your rights throughout every stage of the process. 

Why choose the Law Office of Verderamo & Escobar?

For years, Derek Verderamo has defended individuals accused of crimes.  Conversely, Juan Escobar has prosecuted thousands of criminal cases as a state prosecutor.  The two have gone toe-to-toe on countless cases and this year Juan Escobar is proud to leave the Office of the State Attorney to form a partnership with Derek Verderamo. 

Mr. Verderamo brings his years of experience in defending DUI and other criminal cases throughout several counties and the experience of practicing before all of the local judges and prosecutors in Naples.  Mr. Escobar brings his experience from the opposite viewpoint, which allows him to recognize the strengths and weaknesses from the prosecution’s standpoint.  He knows the tactics and strategies of prosecutors.  He also brings the knowledge gained by prosecuting thousands of cases and dealing with the multitude of corresponding defense attorneys to see which defenses and strategies are available and most effective.

Successful criminal defense attorneys spend a great deal of time in court before both judges and juries.  The skills obtained and maintained by consistent courtroom litigation are invaluable when shifting into a role as car accident attorney where hearings or trials are less common.
