CRIMINAL DEFENSE

In criminal law, hiring the experienced defense counsel is paramount for  individuals facing the threat of criminal prosecution. We represent individuals who are charged with the following crimes:

  • homicides (ranging from intentional murder to reckless manslaughter and death-by-auto),
  • assault,
  • kidnapping,
  • robbery,
  • arson,
  • criminal mischief,
  • burglary,
  • theft,
  • forgery,
  • drug offenses,
  • drug trafficking,
  • battery
  • domestic violence
  • misdemeanor crimes
  • DUI
  • traffic offenses (driving with a suspended license)
  • firearms violations, and other weapons offenses

The offenses listed above carry the possibility of incarceration, sometimes substantial, mandatory, and subject to significant parole ineligibility, upon conviction. Thus, it is critical that a person facing consequences of such magnitude retain an attorney who is qualified and experienced.

On many occasions, seasoned attorneys, through effective early representation, can set the groundwork for positive results or secure a favorable early resolution. A person charged with this type of crime needs an advocate capable of formidably opposing the substantial resources typically available to law enforcement and prosecutors. On some occasions, these matters must be tried by a jury, making it essential that an individual retain a skilled trial attorney.

To those facing criminal charges, the choice of counsel can make all the difference. A lawyer, as vital advocate for the accused, conducts early investigation, identifies applicable defenses, analyzes strengths and weaknesses, prepares legal applications, also called motions, negotiates with prosecuting authorities, and zealously defends an accused before a jury. Additionally, a lawyer involved early in the case can expedite the client’s release on bail, allowing the client to assist in preparing the defense.

In the end, for those charged with crimes and offenses, the proper selection of counsel is pivotal. A capable and experienced attorney can often mean the difference between a finding of guilt or innocence, and, critically, incarceration or freedom.
