Criminal Defense

Don’t Let One Legal Problem Ruin Your Life for Years to Come

If you or a loved one is facing criminal charges, it is essential that you take the situation very seriously. The process can be very confusing and you have important rights you need to protect. While the police, prosecuting attorney, and others in the legal system may try to tell you that a guilty plea will help put this event behind you, that is absolutely not the case. The best way to protect your rights today and fight for your future is to have an experienced defense attorney there to help you every step of the way.

Our team has the experience needed to provide effective representation on all types of charges no matter how big or small. The following are just a few of the many types of cases we have helped our clients with:

  • Violent Crimes – Violent crimes ranging from robbery, rape, domestic violence, manslaughter, and murder.
  • Drug Charges – Drug charges can include simple possession to distribution, and more. Drug types range from marijuana to prescription medication or to the more serious drugs such as heroin.
  • Traffic Violations – Traffic violations may seem minor but can result in serious consequences to your ability to possess a driver’s license. We can represent you on violations ranging from reckless driving, speeding tickets, driving without a license, and more.
  • DUI – Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a serious situation that can impact all areas of your life. Having a good defense will help to protect your legal rights.
  • Juvenile Charges – The courts may try to say that juvenile charges aren’t serious, but they can affect your life for years to come. All charges against a child should be taken very seriously to protect the future of your child.
