Focused on Superior Criminal Defense Representation

Our top-rated defense attorneys have only one focus: providing the best possible representation for you. To us, that means two things. 

Client Communication

First, we take our obligations to our clients seriously. We return phone calls and text messages promptly, keep our clients informed, and visit our incarcerated clients in jail on a regular basis so that they know what is going on and can be thoroughly prepared for each hearing. Our lawyers believe each client needs to see his or her discovery and have the opportunity to review the legal filings in each case. 

Proactive Steps to Fight Your Charges

Second, we take proactive steps to achieve the best possible outcome. We will investigate your case, attempt to locate exculpatory evidence and witnesses, strategically litigate pre-trial motions, stay on top of recent developments in the law, and always fight hard to get the best results. We prepare as if each case will go to trial because they often do. We do not recommend a guilty plea just to save time or money; we recommend a plea only when it is the best possible result for the client.  

Real Criminal Trial Lawyers

Most importantly, we are not afraid to take a case to trial in front of a judge or jury because we know the criminal justice system and how to get results. We have the experience from defending thousands of clients against criminal charges ranging from misdemeanors like Driving Under the Influence ("DUI"), possession of a controlled substance, and Simple Assault, to serious felonies such as Robbery, Burglary, gun charges, drug crimes like Possession with the Intent to Deliver ("PWID"), sex offenses, and Homicide. We know that each case is different, and we will work closely with you to determine the best options for you.  

Depending on your case, that could mean the outright dismissal of charges before trial, entry into a diversionary program, a successful motion to suppress, acquittal at trial, or a reduced sentence.
