Encountering police can be a stressful, scary, and upsetting occurrence. If you or a friend or family member has been cited or arrested for an infraction, misdemeanor, or felony and are facing a prison or jail sentence or even a fine, you need to retain an attorney for representation. Sometimes pretrial negotiations can result in a change or reduction of a charge that would not have as severe of an impact on the accused as the initial charge. In some cases, a person charged with a first offense may be eligible to participate in a deferred prosecution program that will result in the charges being dismissed. These are just some of the reasons a defense attorney is needed in a criminal matter. Our firm provides competent, dedicated, and knowledgeable criminal defense representation through the procedures and processes of the Criminal Justice system.
We have represented clients in state and federal cases, both with and without a jury. Our representation is more than just to protect you and your rights from overzealous law enforcement officials, it is also to advise you on the long-term consequences of penalties, enhancements, and multiple convictions. During trial we will hold the government to its burden of proof, ensure any evidence is legally admissible and excluded if necessary, and preserve and present your lawful defenses.
