Palm Beach Criminal Attorneys

A Palm Beach Criminal Attorney Who Cares about Your Rights

Few things are more terrifying than finding yourself on the wrong side of the law. The various legal costs and fines can easily run into the thousands of dollars, while the far-reaching consequences of a conviction can affect nearly every aspect of your life, from eligibility for housing to employment opportunities. And that is not even covering the frightening potential of incarceration or administrative penalties. The good news is, you have rights, and the right lawyer will make sure they are protected.

For more than 30 years, Palm Beach lawyer David W. Olson has dedicated his practice exclusively to defending the freedoms and constitutional rights of clients in Florida facing state and federal criminal charges – from the most minor to the most serious. Combining litigation and negotiation skills with an extensive knowledge of court procedures, Mr. Olson assists clients from all walks of life in maneuvering through the legal process to obtain the best possible results.

He believes that everyone has a right to the best defense possible, and that is exactly what he has been providing to clients for years. Mr. Olson always tailors his defense strategy to meet each client’s unique needs, and this method has enabled him to obtain positive outcomes in all kinds of cases – even when people felt that they had the deck stacked against them. David Olson does not believe in giving up or giving in, and will always look into every possible angle.

His winning philosophy focuses on 10 key elements:

  1. Effectiveness. You need someone who is smart, creative, knowledgeable, and experienced.

  2. Communication. You need someone who makes sure that his clients understand their charges and the progress of the case.

  3. Responsiveness. You need someone who understands how important this case is in your life and makes himself available to your needs.

  4. Exhausting all options. You need someone willing to use any legal means necessary to get you the best possible outcome, and who will aggressively advocate for your rights.

  5. Responsibility. You need someone who understands the incredible responsibility involved in representing you in a criminal case.

  6. Representing you personally. You need someone who vows to represent you themselves rather than bringing other lawyers in to take over your case.

  7. Comfort. You need to work with someone who makes you feel comfortable, and should be encouraged to meet with several potential representatives before deciding on an advocate.

  8. Knowing his limits. You need someone who will not stretch himself too thin by taking on too many cases at one time.

  9. Confidentiality. You need someone you can trust to maintain your confidentiality so that you feel comfortable telling him everything he needs to know to help your case.

  10. No guaranteed outcomes. You need someone whose only guarantee to you is that he will work as hard as possible to get you the best outcome – promising a specific result is irresponsible and impossible.

Found the Best!

“David Olson has represented me on two occasions. I have since referred two of my friends and my nephew to him, and they have all told me they’ll always be grateful for that. Mr. Olson somehow had the charges dropped in both of my cases (actually, I do know how, because he and his staff answered all my questions and explained in detail things that I never would have thought of).”


Compassionate Attorney

"My husband and I hired Mr. Olson to represent our son a Florida gun shot victim. We are New Jersey residents. From day one we felt comfortable with Mr. Olson and found him to be easy to talk to and a very good listener. This was important to us after our horrible experience with another attorney who was more concerned with hearing himself speak than our wishes."


Personable and Highly Intelligent!

“I saw David today to discuss some possible outcomes and possibilities of a probable future case. I did not know if I was going to be charged at all but I wanted to speak to someone to get a better idea of what I was looking at and what my options were. As soon as I shook his hand I felt very comfortable and respected. I laid it all out for him and asked him every last question I had, all of which were answered respectfully and intelligently.”


The Best of the Best

"I have known David Olson for over 20 yrs. now and have had my rough times in my past and unfortunately I ended up in trouble with the law and really needed help from a real lawyer. I needed someone to listen to my side of the story and really fight my cases in court for me and get the BEST results for my cases. A very close friend said the man for the job is David W Olson; So I contacted him & he came to me the very next day to hear me out and I knew he was the lawyer that would do the best for me and he did.”

Hearty Recommendation

"I hired Mr. Olson from recommendation by family member. He was immediately behind my situation and put me completely at ease. There were no false promises, very upfront as far as expectations and outcomes.

His assistant, Jessica was a joy to work with as well. They came to my house, interviewed witnesses, went above and beyond and always respond to my calls. I totally endorse this attorney."
