Criminal Defense

CRIMINAL DEFENSE

When you are accused of a crime, it is critical to hire aggressive attorneys who have a long history of defending clients in state and federal courts. The emotional and financial costs of a conviction can be overwhelming. We zealously defend our clients in all types of criminal cases. Call us as soon as you are arrested and do not make any statements unless we are present.

We provide a defense for all the following criminal cases and more:

  • Felonies
  • Misdemeanors
  • Driving under the influence (DUI)
  • Traffic
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Drug cases
  • Capital murder
  • Larceny

Attorneys who understand the consequences

It is important to have excellent representation, even for a traffic misdemeanor. The consequences can be severe and may include:

  • Fines
  • Increased insurance rates
  • Suspension or restriction of driver’s license
  • Jail sentence
  • Education programs, if alcohol is involved

Collecting and examining the evidence

When involved in a criminal case, it is helpful to your defense to bring certain documents to your first attorney appointment at our office:

  • All paperwork generated by the court
  • Copy of driving record if this is a case involving driving offense
  • Arrest warrants
  • Copies of any statements or records

Our skilled attorneys defend you and protect your interests through every step of the criminal discovery process and trial. We obtain and read all documents that are relevant to your case including the police investigation and witness statements. Sometimes the police make mistakes during the arrest process and the evidence may be inadmissible.

DUI evidence

In a DUI case, the officers usually conduct field sobriety tests at the scene. These tests must be appropriately administered. The blood alcohol test also must be administered under approved conditions and the testing apparatus itself has to be tested periodically. We examine any scientific evidence taken at the scene and the certificate of blood alcohol analysis to detect any irregularities that may enable us to suppress the test evidence.
