Our Areas of Criminal Defense Expertise

Criminal defense proceedings are multifaceted and call for expert representation. Sometimes criminal cases do not go to trial thanks to negotiation among the prosecutors. Our criminal defense attorneys stop at nothing to prepare and gather any evidence that will portray our clients in the best light. Since 1985, our criminal lawyers have dealt with countless cases involving:

  • DWI and DUI ­– When a person is charged with a DUI or DWI, he or she has to deal with two separate cases; one is criminal, and the other is civil. To improve your chances of challenging and/or improving consequences, seeking an aggressivedefense attorney is a must.
  • Marijuana and Drug Possession – On a federal and state level, the possession, manufacture, distribution and selling of controlled substances are illegal. If you are accused of violating state or federal laws related to drug possession, you need a skilled criminal lawyer who can protect your rights.
  • Juvenile Defense – Juvenile offenders are not convicted of a crime, per se; the court just recognizes that they engaged in delinquent activity or misconduct and assigns the punishment it deems necessary. In order to protect your child’s rights, it is highly important to have a criminal defense attorney on your side.
  • Domestic Violence – Domestic violence is the abuse and/or misconduct a person inflicts on someone else with whom he or she has an intimate relationship. If you are charged with this kind of violence, seeking professional legal counsel from an attorney is essential.

Our firm’s defense attorneys also have extensive experience with handling restraining orders and white collar crimes.
