Why retain The Kilfin Law Firm, P.C.?

For most people, there are very few experiences in life that are as stressful as being arrested for a crime. The prospect of having a criminal conviction (or worse yet, a felony conviction), spending time in jail, losing your driver's license, or being branded a sex offender can be utterly debilitating. The potential consequences for non-U.S. citizens are even worse.

In many instances, there is much that can be done for a person facing a criminal charge. Attorney Donald J. Kilfin has nearly fifteen years of legal experience in the Tampa Bay area, including six years as a Pinellas County state prosecutor. The years Mr. Kilfin spent prosecuting criminal cases have given him tremendous insight into in the inner workings of the state attorney's office, including how criminal cases are investigated, charged, and assembled. As a young assistant state attorney, Mr. Kilfin tried cases against many of Tampa Bay's elite criminal defense attorneys and learned, first hand, how to develop and implement highly effective defense strategies on behalf of people accused of crimes. Those experiences made Mr. Kilfin a much more effective prosecutor and, ultimately, have made him a more effective criminal defense attorney.

After spending six years building thousands of criminal cases, and conducting over sixty jury trials to verdict (including first and second degree murder, manslaughter, capital sexual battery, burglary, arson and armed robbery), Mr. Kilfin was ready to enter private practice. The relationships he forged at the State Attorney's office remain intact to this day, and will for the remainder of his professional life.

As a Tampa Bay area criminal defense attorney, Mr. Kilfin utilizes the knowledge, skills, and unyielding commitment to professional growth and development that were fostered long ago. Years of practice on both sides of the courtroom make Mr. Kilfin uniquely qualified to evaluate the merits of the state's case against the clients he represents today. Moreover, he has developed relationships with some of Tampa Bay's finest professionals including substance abuse evaluators, treatment providers, and forensic psychologists who assist him in providing the high quality of legal representation he is well known for. There are very few issues facing an accused person that Mr. Kilfin has not seen before, worked through, and successfully resolved.

Every client that retains The Kilfin Law Firm, P.C. receives the same level of commitment to their case. Mr. Kilfin is absolutely relentless in his pursuit of attaining the best possible outcome for each and every client he represents. There are many defense attorneys in the Tampa Bay area, but there are none who will outperform Mr. Kilfin in terms of raw tenacity and commitment to hard work.
