What is Criminal Defense?
Criminal defense is the area of law focused on defending those who are arrested and accused of committing a misdemeanor or felony. If you’re accused of committing a crime, the law says that you have the right to defend yourself, plead your case, and fight for a fair conviction.
Criminal cases usually begin with a charge. This means that the local, state, or federal government has formally accused you or your loved one of committing a crime, but nothing has been proven, yet.
What happens next depends entirely on what the charges are, how much evidence there is against you, and whether you have an attorney.
We handle the following types of criminal charges:
- Domestic assault
- And more
Although you have constitutional protections on your side, our justice system was not designed for you to defend yourself. It’s important to understand that the government will use whatever resources they have at their disposal to investigate the charges against you and secure the most severe penalty and sentence possible.
Our attorneys understand that a criminal conviction, especially one that’s unjust, can have life-altering and irreversible effects. The moment you’re arrested and charged with a crime, it’s essential that you call our office. Our goal is to have your charges reduced as much as possible or dropped altogether so that the results are appropriate and fair.
