Orlando Criminal Defense Attorney

Tilden Law is recognized throughout the Central Florida legal community as a top tier provider of aggressive legal representation and the “go to” criminal defense law firm for clients seeking positive results in criminal cases. Our goal is to position your case for dismissal or charge reduction to then allow for your criminal record to be sealed or expunged. “Clearing your criminal record is our ultimate goal”. We focus the core of our service on defending clients charged with crimes in state court and range from simple criminal traffic offenses to complex felony cases.

How We Achieve Results In Your Case

1. Getting to Know Each Client
Having practiced criminal law for more than 20 years in the Orlando area, I have learned that each of our clients concerns and desires is unique. While most criminal defense firms are focused on volume of clients, Tilden Law takes the approach that the truest way in achieving a satisfied client is to take the time to meet with and listen to our clients. By taking the time to get to know our clients, we are able to focus on a plan to defend your case and achieve the best result. Our office provides free initial consultations and case evaluation and is available 24 hours a day.
2. Reviewing Court Documents
Understanding how the State Attorney’s office makes their charging decisions is vital. As a former Assistant State Attorney in Central Florida, I review every police report, witness statement and law report from the perspective of a former prosecutor. My background gives me the unique perspective from both sides of the courtroom and allows me to recognize and take advantage of the weakness in the prosecutor’s case.
3. Knowing the Law
Times change and so do criminal laws. Each time an appellate court publishes a ruling in an area of criminal, the law is either modified or reinforced. To achieve the best outcome for our clients, it is vital to stay current with case law so we can use it to the advantage of our clients.
4. Knowing Your Judge and Courtroom
Knowing YOUR judge, prosecutor and courthouse personnel can make a tremendous difference in the ability to successfully defend your case. Every judge has his or her own courtroom rules and procedures and every prosecutor has a unique way of making plea offers to resolve a case. Orange County criminal courts, Seminole County, Volusia County and Osceola County courts operate very differently from one another. A criminal defense lawyer who lacks this courtroom experience will be at a tremendous disadvantage that could lead to a disastrous outcome for a client.
5. Meeting with Your Prosecutor
In most cases, the prosecutor handling your case only knows what has been put in front of him/her by the police. Often times, this is the only information that the prosecutor uses to make a decision on whether to file criminal charges. Tilden Law believes that meeting with the Assistant State Attorney prosecuting your case and carefully enlightening them on your side of the story can often mean the difference in tipping the scale in your favor.
6. Experience Counts
N. Fleetwood Tilden, Esq. is a former Assistant State Attorney with over 20 years of criminal trial experience in both Misdemeanor and Felony criminal courts. We have successfully handled more than 5,000 criminal cases in Orange County (Orlando), Seminole County, Osceola County and Volusia County criminal courts. Fleet has been named Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Florida by The National Trial Lawyers, Top 100 DUI Attorney’s in Central Florida by the NADD, voted “10 Best” client satisfaction by the American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys, rated “superb” by AVVO and maintains a A+ Better Business Bureau rating.
