Victoria McFadyen has extensive experience in handling criminal cases in the Florida Keys.
A criminal defense lawyers can do much more than simply question witnesses in court. People who have been recently arrested need to talk to a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. The most urgent priority is often getting a lawyer to help arrange release and provide some information about what’s to come in the days ahead.
If you believe you may be charged with a crime, or have been charged — DO NOT GIVE ANY STATEMENTS TO THE POLICE BEFORE SPEAKING WITH A LAWYER.–
Family law cases are usually charged with emotion as they usually involve the break up of an important relationship and involve many sensitive issues such as parenting plans for children and financial problems.
I have represented both husbands and wives in dissolution and paternity. We usually mediate each case in Monroe County. Typically mediation involve issues such as parenting agreements, time sharing , relocation issues, alimony, child-support and equitable division of marital assets. Most cases are resolved without going to trial but many cases do make it to the trial docket.

I had a pretty unique case. For nearly 18 years I had an open felony warrant out of Monroe County (Key West). Back in 1996 I placed on a pre-trial intervention and later had a warrant, a warrant that remained open the whole time, issues for failing to complete my obligation to the state. Facing the possibility of mandatory prison time if I was found guilty at trial, Victoria tirelessly negotiated with the State to arrange a plea agreement keeping me out of prison and maintaining my civil rights. Victoria’s expertise, charisma, and thoughtfulness helped me through one of the toughest times of my life. Ms McFadyen is undoubtedly the attorney you want in your corner. BT 6/3/2014
