Carlos P. Gonzalez

Carlos P. Gonzalez: Attorney with Law Firm of Albert M. Quirantes, Esq.


Carlos Pelayo Gonzalez, Esq., is a former assistant chief state attorney in the DUI misdemeanor division of the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office. He served as the Drug Court special prosecutor and in the Felony Division before joining forces with Miami Criminal Attorney Albert Quirantes in private practice. Now a criminal defense litigator, he has tried numerous bench and jury trials as both a prosecutor and later as a private criminal defense attorney.

Mr. Gonzalez is skilled at writing and arguing winning motions which exclude illegally obtained evidence, avoiding unnecessary trials by negotiating favorable pre-trial dispositions, and obtaining reduced charges or dismissals for our clients.

Both Mr. Gonzalez and Mr. Quirantes work closely together to develop novel defenses and uncover the minor details others overlook. This can mean the difference between acquittal and conviction. But when the prosecutor refuses to offer a result that is in the best interest of a client, Mr. Quirantes and Mr. Gonzalez will take the case before a judge or jury without reservation. Put the combined strength of this team to work for you today.
