Whether you are accused of a misdemeanor or felony DUI offense, or drug crimes such as possession, prescription fraud, sales, or distribution, the penalties in a conviction can be life-changing. The repercussions extend beyond the fines, jail or prison time and other punishments – your criminal record is now compromised, and your ability to get quality employment greatly reduced.

The ability to craft a successful criminal defense requires more than just knowledge of law. It is necessary that your attorney has insight and the ability to negotiate with the prosecutor, as well as to present a persuasive case to a jury. If you are searching for a high quality, aggressive defense lawyer with a record of success at trial, contact the firm as early as possible after your arrest. If you have not yet been arrested, but have been called in for questioning in a criminal case, it is strongly advised that you have defense counsel with you throughout the process.
