Criminal Defense

When you are charged with a crime, regardless of the outcome of the case, society tends to view you in a negative light. Our firm, however, takes a very different approach; we base our mission on the ideal that each accused person is innocent until proven guilty, and we recognize that sometimes people are victims of circumstance.  With these principles serving as the foundation of our work, our attorneys work tirelessly to defend clients charged with criminal matters, from traffic violations, to criminal contempt, to minor felonies including violations of orders of protection.

Regardless of the charges against you, we will work aggressively to defend you in a court of law.
