CRIMINAL DEFENSE CASES WE REPRESENT
Drug Charges

Drug charges are serious crimes that require representation by experienced professionals, so we recommend you avoid talking with anyone until you have consulted a criminal defense attorney. If you've been charged with a drug offense, you're facing the possibility of significant jail time culminating in a criminal record which could affect your employment and future opportunities, so it is essentially that you have proper representation. We can help you with drug possession and distribution charges involving cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and marijuana. 
Theft

Theft crimes include a variety of criminal offenses relating to taking another’s property or money. Depending on the value of the property involved, you could be facing felony charges leading to incarceration, fines, and a criminal record. If you've been accused of shoplifting, carjacking, petty theft, robbery, burglary, fraud or another theft crime, please call us before talking to anyone and we will provide you with experienced legal representation.
DWI/DUI

DWI stands for “driving while intoxicated.” If your blood alcohol level is 0.08% or higher when a police officer stops your car, it is very likely that you will be arrested and charged with a DWI offense.  DWI/DUI charges may include:

  • DWI, felony and misdemeanor
  • Intoxication manslaughter (DWI with accident and any death)
  • Intoxication assault (DWI with accident resulting in serious bodily injuries)

Penalties for repeat DWI have become more serious than ever before, and felony charges can be filed if the defendant has two prior DWI convictions, regardless of how old they are. The punishment for DWI is based on a number of factors, and prior convictions play a major role in escalating the penalties:

  • First offense: Class B misdemeanor, with a fine up to $2,000 and/or 72 hours to 180 days of jail
  • Second offense: Class A misdemeanor, fine up to $4,000 and jail of not less than 30 days or more than one year
  • Third or subsequent offense: Third-degree felony, fine up to $10,000 and confinement in prison of not less than two years or more than 10 years

​Minimum jail or prison penalties for repeat offenses are harsh and inflexible. If you have been charged with a DWI, you will likely face higher insurance rates, fines, loss of driving privileges, and a criminal record that could affect your entire life. We represent individuals with DWI charges during arrest, bail, filing and hearing on pre-trial motions, plea negotiations, and trial proceedings. Contact our offices to discuss your charges. We are here to help you 24/7. 
Assault/Family Violence

The laws and penalties concerning domestic violence have been expanded. You may face jail time, anger management classes, fines, and possibly lose the right to return home or even to spend time with your children. If you have been accused of domestic violence and/or spousal abuse you will likely face serious criminal charges. Even an innocent person can be convicted if he or she is not well represented, so call us now. We have the experience to present a compelling defense.
