If you believe that you were wrongly convicted, you need an attorney who has the training and the discipline to evaluate every aspect of your case. Your attorney needs a deep-seated knowledge of the law, a talent for investigation and the patience to consider every detail in your case. The ability to successfully appeal a court ruling or verdict is not a skill held by every attorney.
As a law firm skilled in representing individuals accused of a variety of DUI-related offenses, we understand how confused, embarrassed and fearful you may be. We can explain the DUI process to you so that you know what to expect, and pledge to thoroughly examine the evidence against you, making challenges to your sobriety tests and chemical tests and violations of your rights as appropriate.
Aggravating and mitigating factors are taken into consideration in any DUI case when determining the penalties that should be levied. With each successive DUI conviction, the civil and legal penalties worsen. Before admitting guilt, we strongly recommend that you schedule a consultation at our firm so we can sit down with you, evaluate the facts in your case and determine how we may be able to help.
Under our state laws, vehicular manslaughter (or vehicular homicide) is "the reckless killing of another by the operation of an automobile, airplane, boat or other motor vehicle." If you have been charged with this crime, we understand the legal weight the charges hold and will fight for you! We have at our disposal cutting edge technology that we can employ to investigate the accident and arrive at the truth.
The legal consequences for drug crimes in our state are severe, and whether you face misdemeanor possession of marijuana or felony delivery of cocaine, every charge must be taken seriously. If you are under investigation or have been arrested, to protect yourself, you must invoke your right to an attorney and refrain from speaking with law enforcement until we can advise you.
Have you been charged with drug possession? If so, you are probably looking for first-rate legal representation to assist in your defense. Contact our firm and learn about the aggressive protection that we offer to our criminal defense clients. The sooner you reach us, the sooner we can get to work evaluating the evidence in your case and presenting options to you.
If you have packaging items, scales, or compounds used in processing drugs and are also in possession of a controlled substance, you may be charged with possession with intent to sell. The exact charges that are levied against you depend on many elements, such as the type and amount of drug in your possession and your criminal background, including prior drug convictions.
Anyone who has a criminal conviction understands the difficulty of securing employment, getting a decent place to live or obtaining a professional license to keep the family financially stable. To learn whether an expungement of your criminal record may be possible to assure your future, contact our firm at your earliest opportunity.
With today's lightening speed technological advances, it is not unusual to become entrapped in a police sting set for online crimes. Unfortunately, innocent people like you sometimes get trapped right along with the guilty parties. If you are in this situation, let us defend you against the charges.
Whether you are being investigated for a federal crime or have already been arrested, you need a law firm with federal court experience to represent you. We are well-versed in this type of crime and regularly work with federal prosecutors and judges.
Individuals who are placed on probation are given strict rules to follow. If you violated one or more of the rules/conditions of your probation, you are in danger of being sentenced to serve out your time in jail. In this case, you require the services of an attorney at our firm who understands the criminal system, can advocate for your interests and work to save your probation.
Simply being accused of committing a sex crime can severely damage a person's reputation and result in discriminatory behavior towards the accused. Once convicted, the individual is subject to harsh legal penalties, including sex offender registry. If you are under investigation for a sex crime, do not hesitate; contact us immediately for assistance.
Juvenile offenses, including drug possession and DUI, are both heavily prosecuted in a court of law. Additionally, parents of convicted juveniles are held responsible for any fines and fees that the juvenile is unable to pay.
We represent individuals accused in various types of theft, whether it be minor shoplifting, embezzlement, robbery, possession of stolen property or others. Someone with a theft conviction typically will have difficulty finding a job or obtaining a professional license, as the conviction carries with it the stigma of deceitfulness.
The court of public opinion, after hearing about violent crimes through the media, has a tendency to judge and convict the accused before any evidence is offered in court. At our firm, we are familiar with this phenomenon and apply our experience to pursue an aggressive defense despite the challenges that the community at large presents. If you have been charged with a violent crime, contact us for assistance.
