I realize that being under criminal investigation and facing the specter of criminal prosecution can be an unnerving experience.  You probably have many questions and are scared of the unknown.  It is my job and responsibility to navigate you and your family through the overwhelming maze of decisions and questions that come with being charged with a crime.  I will keep you abreast on the latest defense strategies and options and encourage your active participation in the decision-making process. I believe in your fundamental right to be informed about, and to choose among, the best available options for your case. I will empower you to actively and meaningfully participate in your case. Rather than telling you what you need, I will listen to you and provide clear, well-defined alternatives.

How It's Done

Erick Cruz

Put a Former Prosecutor to Work for You and Defend Your Rights Every Step of the Way

After serving at the State Attorney’s Office, Erick founded The Law Office of Erick Cruz. The Sixth Amendment to the United States Constitution provides that in a criminal prosecution, the accused shall have the right to legal representation. Law enforcement and prosecutors have unlimited resources to investigate and prosecute you. Accordingly, you should have someone standing next to you who is familiar with the techniques and strategies employed by them to prosecute you. I stand ready to protect you from arrest and prosecution.

I understand that a criminal investigation or prosecution doesn't affect just one person. It affects you and everything in your life, including your family. With us, you will receive a personalized defense plan specifically tailored to your particular case and circumstances. Your defense plan includes identifying deficiencies in the criminal investigation, exploring the bias and motivations of your accusers and assuring meticulous preservation of your rights. I will work tirelessly to exploit weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and relentlessly defend you to ensure a positive result.
