        Question:

        I was pulled over and the police used a dog without my consent and found drugs; what should I do?

        Answer:

        If you were pulled over in the Orlando, Florida area by law enforcement and they used the canine or the dogs to conduct a sweep of your vehicle without your consent, then we would highly suggest that you contact an attorney that’s experienced in these types of situations. In Florida, law enforcement does have the ability to bring upon canines or dogs to aid in traffic stops. At its basic level, that’s allowable but if you get an experienced attorney onboard, we can find things that will help you in your case and help minimize any of the incriminating evidence that they may find or best protect you in these types of cases because just being pulled over and having the dogs brought, that’s one scenario, but you have to look at what happened before that.

        If you bring in an experienced criminal defense attorney, we can focus on why they stopped you in the first place. Was the stop proper? Was the search and seizure legal or illegal? These are two huge things that many attorneys miss if they’re not experienced in this type of field. Once the dogs are there, that’s secondary and we can deal with that issue later. We tend to look at things before that. Why was the stop made? Was it within legal parameters? Because if it wasn’t, we can get everything that comes after that dismissed. If they didn’t have probable cause to stop you, if the search and seizure was illegal, then anything the dogs may or may not have found or the fact that the dogs were even there, that will just get completely thrown out.

        It’s very important to get an attorney who is knowledgeable with these laws and who’s knowledgeable with the traffic stops, knowledgeable with the probable cause required for these stops to get on your case as soon as possible. This could have huge impact on the final outcome of your case. If you have any other questions about traffic stops and how they relate to drug offenses or any other crimes, please feel free to contact the Victory law firm.

        “In October 2015, My husband was a passenger in a horrible car accident and was hospitalized for two months. After being in ICU for a little over a month , I reached out to Mr. Corzo and He met me in the hospital a day after. Since my husband was still unconscious and in ICU I decided to hire Mr.Corzo for Davids personal injury and workers compensation case. From the moment I met Mr.Corzo he was very emphatic and attentive to all my questions and concerns. Anytime I would email him with a question he would get back to me right away. I would even email/text his paralegal Denise after hours if I had any questions and she would get back to me within a hour. Mr. Corzo made sure he fully explained and went over everything with us before we made any decisions. Mr. Corzo went out of his way to make sure David was taken care of. After my husband was released from the hospital, Mr. Corzo called and checked up on David and made sure he was getting the care he needed. I truly believe Mr. Corzo went above and beyond for my husband in winning both cases. We are extremely blessed with the outcome and would highly recommend him to anyone that may need a lawyer. Due to my husbands injuries we will need to apply for disability, Mr.Corzo offered to help us fill out the paper work and make sure everything is done correctly. We can’t THANK him enough for all that he has done for our family. #Thankful”– David and Jennifer Alvarez
