Richard Leal – Tampa Criminal Attorney

Filed Under (Florida) by Editor on 12-08-2010

After studying oceanography and working in the construction of offshore oil and gas facilities all over the world for ten years, Rick earned his law degree from Stetson College of Law in 1993. As an intern at the State Attorney’s Office during law school, Rick began honing his trial skills even before completing law school.

Upon his graduation, Rick worked as an Assistant State Attorney for the next eight years, handling the prosecution of many murder, rape, robbery, child abuse, drug, DUI, and domestic violence cases. Rick also served as the Chief of County Court, responsible for the training and supervision of every prosecutor and every DUI case in county court.

Rick has tried well over 100 trials to verdict before a jury, and has the skill and experience as a Tampa criminal attorney to make the best of any defense available. Because Rick is fluent in Spanish, he is better able to understand and communicate with his Hispanic clients than others who must depend upon an interpreter.
