When someone is accused of a crime, they need a skilled criminal defense lawyer immediately. Our lawyers represent those accused of crimes ranging from simple misdemeanors to serious felonies. Every case is different and should be approached from that aspect. What our attorneys may have done in one case may not necessarily work in the next similar case. In 2016, our attorneys have received not guilty verdicts on Driving While Intoxicated (in both federal and state courts) and a not guilty in a murder case. Our lawyers had two separate aggravated robberies and assault bodily injury cases dismissed. We tried an aggravated sexual assault case, child pornography and assault with deadly weapon cases that resulted in significantly lower sentences than what prosecutors were asking the court or jury to assess.

Often the officer is quick to arrest, against his better judgment, because of pressure from his supervisors or department policy leading to innocent persons being arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI).

A Motion to Revoke Probation (MTRP) is simply a request by the probation department to a court, asking the court to revoke a defendant's probation and either have the defendant serve time, or have the defendant's terms of probation modified. Any party who is on probation, for any type or level of offense, is subject to having such a motion filed against them.
There simply is no criminal allegation more frightening to a defendant than the allegation of sexual assault or rape. Whereas, with any serious criminal matter, a defendant is forced to consider the possibility of significant prison time.
