Palm Beach Criminal Attorneys

No. 1.  The United States Constitution guarantees effective legal representation to anyone accused of a criminal offense. In my view, effective representation by a lawyer is dependent upon the lawyer’s experience, thoroughness, creativity, aggressiveness, and professionalism. Of course, a lawyer is most effective when adept at both oral and written presentation of the rights and claims of the client, to whom he must be exclusively loyal.  And ultimately, effectiveness is determined by effort and results.

No. 2.  Not only should a lawyer take every possible lawful action to achieve the best possible result for a client, he or she should also promptly and fully inform the client as to each and every development in the client’s case.

No. 3.  Despite the lawyer having practiced for many years and having represented many clients, he or she should never forget that as to each client, the matter in which representation occurs may well be the most important matter in the client’s life. Each client has real problems and real concerns, and his or her lawyer should be responsive at all times to any question or concerns the client desires to express. No matter how significant or trivial such question or concern may in fact be, if it is important to the client the lawyer should immediately address it.

No. 4.  A lawyer should zealously protect the client’s rights utilizing all proper means, and through experience and confidence be willing to vigorously advocate those rights in a courtroom setting.

No. 5.  No lawyer should undertake the enormous responsibility of representing a citizen accused of a crime unless he or she is willing to acknowledge the awesome nature of such responsibility, given that his or her performance may well impact a client’s liberty and future life direction.

No. 6.  A client who has chosen to retain a particular lawyer is entitled to the representation in hearings and other contexts by that same lawyer. Only with the client’s consent should that lawyer involve another lawyer on his behalf.

No. 7.  Because the selection of one’s lawyer is a crucial decision to be made by an accused individual, that individual should be encouraged to meet with a sufficient number of potential lawyers in order to intelligently make the extremely important decision as to whom to retain.  He or she should know that the lawyer will be the face of and voice for his or her case, and through such meetings gauge who should fill that crucial role in his or her life.

No. 8. A lawyer should only undertake the representation of as many clients as he or she can effectively represent. A “volume” practice may be good for the lawyer, but it may be bad for his or her client, for whom “corner-cutting” is unacceptable.

No. 9.  A lawyer should ensure that communications with a client are absolutely confidential, allowing the client to rest assure that he or she can inform the lawyer of all details relating to the matter at issue without fear of compromised privacy.

No. 10.  Virtually never can a lawyer honestly guarantee a particular result in a case. However, the lawyer should always be able to genuinely guarantee that he or she will do absolutely everything that is lawfully possible in order to vigorously protect the rights of a client.

Better call Saul? More like, BETTER CALL OLSON!

“David W. Olson is the best lawyer I have come across. He truly will sit and listen to your story and no matter what he will fight for your rights. He is very compassionate, and understanding. He will work with you and does his job with a good heart. Mr. Olson truly has saved my life and gave me a second chance. You wont go wrong with hiring David Olson as your attorney. I highly recommend him and I am proud to have chosen him as my attorney.”


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."
