Fighting difficult criminal cases is what this firm was built on.

Being charged with a crime is, for most people, a devastating turn of events. Confusion, anxiety, and stress may result, especially for people being charged for the first time. 

Jail time, loss of employment, and damaged relationships are just a few of the understandable concerns going through people’s minds. In these situations, it is easy to make the problem worse by saying too much to the wrong people.

The golden rule is to seek legal advice as early as possible. Don’t speak to the police without the presence of a lawyer. 

An experienced criminal defense lawyer will guide you, do the talking on your behalf when necessary, and advise the next steps. This is your best chance of fighting the charges successfully and mitigating any punishment.

Over the past four decades, our attorneys have looked after many types of criminal defense cases, including:

  • Murder and manslaughter
  • Rape and sexual assault
  • Drug possession or distribution
  • Domestic violence
  • Gun crime
  • Criminal damage
  • Burglary
  • Trespassing
  • DUI 
  • Fraud or white-collar crimes

We cover most felony offenses and misdemeanor cases. This includes some types of sensitive cases that other criminal defense lawyers avoid.

Our representation may also include attending hearings for:

  • Bail 
  • Negotiations
  • Probation 
  • Expungements
  • Department of Revenue cases  
  • Drivers’ license reinstatement 
  • Blood alcohol test refusal appeals
  • Trials

Whether you contact us yourself or on behalf of a family member or friend, we will make sure that you understand the charges, their implications, the legal processes, and the options available to you.

From there, we can start examining the precise details of the case and preparing a rigorous defense, if necessary.

A rigorous defense

Our attorneys’ experience in criminal defense means that, if we take your case on, we are confident of preparing a rigorous defense.

We will focus on key areas such as the following:

  • The precise evidence against you
  • The credibility of accusers and/or witnesses
  • How the evidence was collected by criminal investigators
  • How you were informed of your legal rights by the police
  • Interrogation procedures and other protocols
  • Your state of mental health at the time of the alleged crime
  • Whether there are other factors that explain your alleged actions

In this way, we will build a robust case that will stand up to scrutiny and provide you with the best chance of a favorable outcome.
