Firm Overview | Melbourne Criminal Defense Attorney

The Canina Law Firm was founded in 2008 by Attorney Richard G. Canina. Having handled a high volume of diverse cases in his nearly five years working for the Brevard County Public Defender’s Office, and with over 17 years of experience in private practice, Mr. Canina decided to open his own law firm to give every client the personal service and individual attention they deserve. In 2012, he welcomed into the firm his son, Richard A. Canina, who had already had the diverse experience of defending against thousands of misdemeanor and felony charges with the Public Defender’s Office in Fort Myers, Florida. In 2017, He welcomed his daughter, Lauren Canina Roberson – a former Civil Prosecutor with the Florida Attorney General’s office – as the final member of the firm.

With well over 40 years of combined experience, we are a family firm dedicated to providing top-notch legal representation and aggressive defense for all criminal charges. 100% of our practice is devoted to Criminal Defense. Whenever possible, we work not only to lower our clients’ criminal charges and minimize potential consequences, but to unconditionally HELP the person. We believe that a close working relationship with our clients is necessary in order to achieve the best possible result. We handle a wide variety of criminal cases for our clients, from DUI and traffic offenses to high-profile sexual offenses and violent crimes. Being active members in good standing with the Brevard County and Florida State Bar Associations, we fully understand the challenges facing our clients in local courts.
