Criminal Process

Most of our clients are not hardened criminals-they are normal people who have never previously been involved in the criminal justice system. We will guide you throughout the process of fighting the charges against you, advising you of your rights, and looking out for your best interests along the way.


Contrary to what you may have heard, it is nearly always possible to successfully fight a DUI charge, whether the result is an exoneration, or a reduction or dismissal of the charges. You do not have to plead guilty, even if you were tested with a blood alcohol concentration above .08%.

Drug Crimes

A drug crime conviction can ruin your future, whether it is for possession, cultivation, distribution, sales or prescription fraud. Many drug crime suspects are able to have the case dismissed by demonstrating that their Constitutional rights were violated during the investigation, while others may be eligible for alternative sentencing.

Sex Crimes

When you have been charged with a sex crime, your future is in jeopardy. Not only could you be sentenced to jail or prison, fined and placed on probation, but you could also be required to register as a sex offender, exposing you to considerable social stigma through an online database that would include your photo and personal information.

Theft Crimes

The penalty for a theft crime conviction depends on a variety of factors, including the value of stolen goods, whether the suspect is accused of using force or violence, and whether the suspect has any prior convictions. Depending on the circumstances, you could be sent to jail or prison if convicted.

Juvenile Crimes

Has your child been arrested? We may be able to intervene to help you prevent any long term negative consequences, but it is vital that you take action now. A conviction on the charges could lead to incarceration and loss of educational opportunities, as well as destroying future career prospects.

Internet Crimes

An internet crime conviction can devastate your future whether the charge is identity theft, fraud, or trafficking. Despite what most people believe these charges they can be successfully dropped. We will guide you through the process step by step and fight with our best foot forward.

Probation Violation

If you were convicted of a crime and placed on probation, you were essentially given a second chance to prove yourself. When you are accused of violating the terms of your probation, there is a high likelihood that you will be forced to serve the full terms of your sentence unless you take action now to resolve the situation.

Domestic Violence

Being arrested for domestic violence can be a highly stressful experience, as it not only leads to criminal prosecution, but will also likely result in a restraining order which may force you out of your home and prevent you from seeing your children. Whether or not the alleged victim wants to press charges, you will have to fight the State Attorney to avoid a conviction. .

Weapon Charges

The Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees your right to bear arms, but this right is tightly regulated and even innocent mistakes in following the law can lead to severe criminal penalties. We know how to effectively challenge weapons charges, but it is crucial that you retain our representation early in the process.

White Collar Crimes

Have you been charged with a white collar crime? Whether it's fraud, extortion, tax evasion or bribery, do not hesitate to contact us. We will stand by you every step of the way. Don't let a conviction ruin your future.
