Tampa Attorneys Provide Vigorous State and Federal Criminal Defense

Experienced legal representation for accused Floridians by Board Certified Criminal Defense Attorneys

An arrest for any offense can have serious and long-lasting consequences. Nicholas G Matassini is Board Certified in Criminal Defense. If you have been charged with a criminal offense, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer right away. Since 1976, The Matassini Law Firm, P.A. has represented accused persons in federal and state courts. As former prosecutors, we have vast experience in criminal matters including felonies, misdemeanors and criminal traffic crimes. As your hometown attorneys, we realize it is all too easy for good people to get swept up in a criminal case, through association, misidentification or an error in judgment. We represent you without judgment, working quickly to protect your rights. We analyze your case in great detail to help you make informed decisions about the best way to proceed.

Former Florida prosecutors go to work for you

Nicholas G. Matassini and Christina C. Pappas Matassini are former prosecutors. Having prosecuted criminal cases we have in-depth knowledge of criminal law and first-hand experience of how the prosecution builds its case. We understand intuitively when a prosecutor knows the case is weak and the charges should be reduced or dropped altogether. Our team of former prosecutors and trial attorneys work diligently to pursue all potential options for achieving your best possible results. When justice can only be served through a trial, we represent you in court capably and passionately.
