A Board-Certified Criminal Trial Law Specialist
According to the Florida Bar, there are approximately 87,000 attorneys in Florida. However, fewer than five percent of them are board certified. Is this an important distinction? I think so. Board certification is the highest level of evaluation by The Florida Bar of competency and experience within an area of law, professionalism and ethics.
My name is Andrew Coffey, and I have been board certified as a criminal trial law specialist since 2003. I believe that this, in addition to my more than 23 years of criminal defense experience, is a good reflection of my dedication to the practice of criminal law here in Fort Lauderdale and throughout Broward County and the surrounding region. Thousands of people have trusted me to defend them from a range of criminal charges, including violent crimes and felonies.

Fighting for Your Rights in Criminal Cases
My approach to criminal defense is hands-on and hard-working. I like to get involved in a case as early as possible so I can discuss it with the state attorney; it may be possible to get the charges reduced before they are formally filed. I also consult experts in many fields to challenge evidence, investigate the incident and interview witnesses.
I represent adults and juveniles who have been charged with drug trafficking and possession, sexual offenses, domestic violence and weapons charges. Violent crimes, such as murder, manslaughter, aggravated assault and robbery, are also a large part of my practice.
