Drunk Driving/DUI: A drunk driving conviction carries serious penalties, including heavy fines, jail time, and driver's license revocation. Our firm offers experienced representation to minimize the impact these charges have on your life.
Sex Offenses: If convicted of a sex crime such as rape or child molestation, you will be required to register as a sex offender. When your reputation and your future are at stake, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at our law firm.
Internet Crimes: The Internet is not a private place, and activity on your computer can be closely scrutinized — even if you were not involved in the activity. Our defense attorneys consult with forensic computer experts to provide strong defense against Internet sex crime, Internet fraud, and other cyber crime charges.
Drug Charges: We vigorously defend clients against allegations of drug crimes related to marijuana, crystal meth, cocaine, crack, heroin, and more.
White Collar Crimes: We provide experienced defense against allegations including fraud, embezzlement, identity theft, bribery, and RICO.
Traffic Violations: Our firm provides legal representation to people who have traffic tickets such as speeding, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license and other violations that can add points to their driver's licenses. We will fight to help you maintain your driving privileges.
Homicide: Life in prison without the possibility of parole is a serious penalty for conviction of a serious crime. When your life is on the line, count on our experienced criminal attorneys to aggressively defend you against murder, manslaughter, and homicide charges.
Criminal Assault: There are several classes of assault with which an individual may be charged, including: first-degree assault, second-degree assault, simple assault and aggravated assault. If you have been charged with any assault crime, contact our attorneys to discuss your defense strategy.
Domestic Violence: Family disputes and disagreements often escalate and result in charges of domestic violence. Domestic abuse can occur between family or household members or current or former sexual or intimate partners. We represent individuals charged with domestic violence, violation of protective orders, and other criminal charges of bodily harm, such as assault.
Theft/Burglary/Robbery/Shoplifting: Our criminal defense attorneys represent individuals charged with a variety of theft crimes, including shoplifting, misdemeanor theft, felony theft, burglary, and robbery.
Juvenile Offenses: We provide compassionate and aggressive representation to minors charged with juvenile crimes, such as truancy, underage drinking, minor in possession, drug possession, DUI/DWI drunk driving, vandalism, theft and assault. We believe that a youthful mistake should not ruin a child's or teenager's life, and work hard to protect minors in the juvenile justice system.
Probation/Parole Violations: Have you violated the conditions of your release either by being convicted of a new crime, or a technical violation of the terms of your probation or parole? Our defense attorneys provide determined defense against all types of probation violations and parole violations including: failing to report to your parole or probation officer, failure to abstain from drugs or alcohol, failure to maintain steady employment, or other violations of the terms of your probation or parole.
