The Most Important Defense Strategy

One of the most important things you can do to protect yourself when you are facing a criminal charge, is to talk to a lawyer right away (and not to the police). The earlier in the process, the better, because there may be opportunities to negotiate for reduced charges or for not charging you at all. Those opportunities may be lost if you wait.

I have been defending people facing criminal charges for more than two decades. I represent clients facing any criminal charge in state court, including:

  • Violent crimes: murder, manslaughter, vehicular homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, assault and battery, domestic assault
  • Sex crimes: prostitution, solicitation, Internet solicitation, sexual assault, possession of child porn
  • Drug crimes: possession, sale, distribution, underage drinking
  • Theft crimes: burglary, larceny, shoplifting
  • UI and felony drunk driving
  • Underage Drinking
  • Traffic violations and speeding tickets
