Charles Traina is the Major Crimes Division Bureau Chief. Since graduating from South Texas College of Law, Mr. Traina has spent the majority of his thirty year legal career as a defense attorney, working for the Public Defender’s Office and owning his own practice.

Also a “capital-qualified” attorney, Mr. Traina has shared his experience as a capital case litigator by presenting at the annual Florida Public Defender Association’s “Life Over Death” conferences, which focus on providing attorneys with continuing legal education in the field of capital case defense. He also currently serves on the Florida Public Defender Association Death Penalty Steering Committee.

As the Major Crimes Bureau Chief, Mr. Traina initially became involved in State v. Schenecker as an advisor to the attorneys assigned to the defense.

He later became involved in case preparation, and primarily focused on penalty-phase or sentencing issues.

During the trial, Mr. Traina will act as co-counsel, which involves motion litigation before and during the trial, participation in jury selection, direct and cross examination of selected witnesses, and assisting the first-chair or “lead” trial attorney.
