Having locally based and experienced criminal defense attorneys on your side can mean the difference between jail time and walking out of court free to go home. It can mean the difference between losing your job and keeping it. It can mean the difference between having a criminal record and NOT.

Make the call now to guarantee that you get the representation you deserve -- our team will call you back within 48 hours and will give you a free consultation so that you understand what you can and should be doing next.

With our help you won’t need to worry about:

  • Working with an attorney who doesn’t care about your case. Our team will treat each case on it's individual merits. We don’t give ‘boilerplate’ advice. We give you the advice that YOU need.
  • The high costs of bail charges that you may not be able to afford. Our aim is to get you out of jail on an ROR (Release On Your Own Recognizance) basis. If this isn’t possible then we will actively argue for bail reduction to get you the best deal.
  • The criminal justice process forcing you down unnecessary routes. We will try for case dismissal if charges against you have not been filed yet. If they have then we will automatically take measures to have them reduced.
  • Working with an attorney who will simply look for plea negotiation. Being aggressively prepared, as we are, for trial means that our clients get better results.
  • Having no options if things don’t go according to plan. We have a lot of experience negotiating lower sentences and arguing the case for alternatives to jail including house arrest, work release, rehabilitation programs and county jail.

Remember, we can also help out of state residents who have been accused of a crime (such as DUI, probation violation and outstanding warrants). In some instances this will not require you to even appear in court and we can represent you here.
