Estate Planning and Criminal Defense Attorney Tampa, Florida
Candela Law Firm, P.A.
​About
My name is Anthony Candela and I manage a boutique law firm in Tampa, Florida specializing in criminal defense and appeals.

My other passion is helping families plan for their future with sound and reasonable estate planning, which includes drafting wills, trusts, living wills, powers of attorney, and other estate planning documents, including, plans to protection your children in the event that the unthinkable occurrs.

I have the background and experience to handle serious felony offenses like murder or a traffic homicide, sexual offenses (like lewd or lascivious), child abuse, and narcotics trafficking. I am skilled in white collar crimes like theft schemes, insurance fraud, RICO, and embezzlement. I am proficient in handling bond motions (i.e., getting people out of jail pending trial), various evidentiary issues (like suppressing evidence), jury trials, as well as VOPs (violations of probation). My firm's small size allows for a more personal experience for my clients. I have has personally tried over 100 jury trials (as a defense attorney, never as a prosecutor) and handled several dozen criminal appeals. I am also a three-time Board Certified trial attorney in Criminal Trial by the Florida Bar (2008-2023). Board certified attorneys, like me, are considered experts in the field. I will provide you with the best defense for your case and will ensure that you and your rights are protected.
