How do I choose an attorney?
It has been well established that the skill of your attorney has a significant impact on the outcome in court. Most lawyers are knowledgeable of the law, but not all of them have the experience and talent in the courtroom environment that is needed when facing serious criminal charges. The legal team at our firm has extensive courtroom experience, and uses an aggressive approach in the defense of our clients. With an energetic and well-prepared defense case, you increase the possibility of a favorable case outcome.
Is there any way to avoid conviction on a DUI charge?
Many people choose to plead "guilty" and never even have an attorney look into the details of their case. It is astonishing how many cases have viable options for the defense and could have been fought in court. A full review of all the evidence is the first step to a strong defense. You must act quickly as these cases move through the system rapidly.
What if I am falsely accused?
There are many individuals serving time in prison today that are not guilty of the crime. Innocence is not enough - the prosecutor believes they have enough evidence to convict you, and you must take immediate action if you have been falsely accused. Our legal team will expose the truth and fight to get the case dismissed before moving further through the system.
Will I go to jail?
Our state has very harsh punishments for criminal offenses. Many felony charges include mandatory prison time. If you have been accused of a serious crime, without immediate defense actions it becomes more likely that you may spend time in prison. Contact our firm as soon as possible after your arrest.
