William L. "Lenny" Athas
Welcome to the law firm of William L. Athas, a premier criminal defense and civil advocacy firm in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA. I am available during and outside of regular business hours on my cell phone, 954-292-7745.
I represent my criminal defense and civil clients with strength, fearlessness, and powerful insight into clients’ legal issues because I am a retired Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) and a Special Agent (Retired) with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). My experience provides clients with exceptional investigative and prosecution knowledge to benefit their defense.
Vital is my superior insight of how investigations should have been done, weaknesses in how investigators and prosecutors built their evidence, and the strengths and vulnerabilities to prosecution in the whole case.
With my representation, my clients have the strong advantage of my knowledge of the U.S. and international legal processes and how they fit together in investigations, arrests, extraditions, client safety, prisoner rights, trials, plea negotiations, and my clients’ overall well-being. This is true whether an international or domestic case is the focus. I know first-hand how international extraditions affect my clients’ families remaining in their home country. I understand client and family safety after international arrests happen.
Because of my exceptional experience, I am successful at understanding and forecasting events and probabilities during legal negotiations and proceedings. This is critical to the best results for my clients.
I encourage you to contact me personally to assist you. My direct number appears below and throughout the site.
