Criminal trial attorney providing effective defense to Florida Criminal Defense Attorney Ronnie G. Crider clients

Ronnie G. Crider has been working in the legal industry for more than 35 years. He began his career as the Pinellas County deputy sheriff and was certified to use one of the first breath-testing devices, the Breathalyzer 900, in 1975. Since then, he has been providing clients throughout Florida with comprehensive criminal defense services for cases involving misdemeanors and felony charges in local, state and federal court. He has also made an impact in the legal community outside the courtroom as an officer, director and president of the Clearwater Bar Association.

In 1988, he was one of the first 100 criminal defense attorneys to receive a Criminal Trial Law Board Certification from the state of Florida. He focuses solely on criminal defense cases, including many high-profile matters such as one of the first Prozac drug-defense cases in Florida. That was one of the first trials to be aired on Court TV.
