Christian Van Riper, the head of our criminal defense practice, spent years as a prosecutor for the state of Florida. He has litigated a myriad of criminal cases, argued motions and appeals on a great variety of issues, and conducted jury and non-jury trials dealing with crimes ranging from DUIs to murder. As a former prosecutor, Christian knows how the other side thinks, giving him a valuable edge in the courtroom and the perspective needed to defend any case. Christian is known for leaving no stone unturned and for being a legal warrior for his clients.
