Carlos Canet has over thirty years experience defending every type of criminal case. He has developed the insight necessary to effectively defend the difficult prosecution. Representing those that find themselves facing serious weapons charges has been well within his experience. These cases are especially technical and require much skill because at times significant mandatory prison sentences are faced. This type of case can destroy families and lives. You should not entrust the choice of representation to a lawyer that has not accumulated the proper knowledge and years of experience. Too much is at stake.
