Pensacola Criminal Defense Lawyer Services

Valerie Erwin Prevatte has been the lead attorney on over 20,000 criminal cases in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. As a former prosecutor at the State Attorney's Office in Pensacola, Mrs. Prevatte prosecuted a multitude of criminal cases ranging from serious felony offenses to DUIs, misdemeanors and traffic infractions.

After leaving the State Attorney's Office, Mrs. Prevatte opened her own law practice in Pensacola. Early in her solo practice, she represented clients in a variety of legal matters such as family law cases, small claims disputes, injunction hearings, traffic infraction hearings and, of course, criminal cases.
