You Can Trust Us To Aggressively Protect Your Rights
We defend people against misdemeanor and felony charges in areas such as:
- DUI: First offenses and subsequent offenses, license suspension
- Violent crimes: assault, aggravated assault, domestic violence, sex offenses
- Drugs: possession, possession with intent involving street drugs and prescription drugs
- Theft: shoplifting, grand larceny, auto theft, fraud
When we take a criminal case, we immediately begin by investigating the alleged offense. In addition, we review the prosecution’s case against you to determine where there may be weaknesses. If we find weaknesses, we will work to exploit them.
We also thoroughly examine each case to see if the police violated the defendant’s constitutional rights. Perhaps they lacked probable cause or violated the rules of search and seizure. If your rights were violated, we may be able to argue for relevant evidence to be suppressed, which can lead to a reduction or dismissal of the charges. Each case is unique, though, and you should discuss yours with an attorney.
