Your Best Defense: Aggressive Criminal Attorneys

Whether you’re facing a first time DUI, or you have multiple felony convictions, your case is too important not to get the best legal assistance you can find. Our attorneys know our clients are worried about losing their license, their employment, or even their freedom. We know that when this happens people need quick and clear answers to their legal questions. We also often arrange for a bail bond to be posted, or fight for a bail reduction to release your loved one, so that we can defend the case with the client free while we work to defend the case.

Our criminal defense attorneys do much more than simply plea bargain or question witnesses in court. Our attorneys:

  • Provide our clients with a reality check, an objective perspective on their situation and what is likely to happen if their cases go to trial. This perspective is vital for defendants trying to decide whether to accept a plea bargain offered by the prosecutor.
  • Are familiar with important legal rules because many criminal law rules are hidden away in court interpretations of federal and state constitutions.
  • Are knowledgeable of local court practice and procedures that are vital to effective representation but aren't written down anywhere.
  • Understand the consequences of simply pleading guilty.
  • Spend crucial time defending each client’s case

Our criminal lawyers have earned the respect of judges, prosecutors and police officers as aggressive, knowledgeable attorneys who are not afraid to tackle tough cases.
