Law Firm of Richard D. Lakeman, P.A.

Criminal Defense Attorney
Serving Cape Coral & Fort Myers

Defending your legal rights in federal, state and local Court.

I am federally qualified as a CJA Panel Trial Criminal Defense Attorney and have represented many defendants in Federal Court and many defendants charged with many criminal offenses in State Court. I have been a member of the Florida Bar, practicing criminal law in Lee County for over 14 years. I practiced law in New York and California representing defendants in over 750 criminal cases. I am also admitted to practicing law in the state of Iowa.

I have handled many criminal defense felony and misdemeanor cases both at the Federal and State levels and many child dependency cases involving the Department of Children and Families (DCF). My fees are affordable. Every case in different. It is not possible to determine a fee without fully discussing the facts of your case. The first step is to make an appointment at no charge. I am committed to providing competent and caring legal representation to individuals accused of crimes.
