By hiring an attorney immediately after your arrest, you may be able to limit the damage caused by a conviction—or even avoid a conviction altogether.

We aggressively defend individuals charged with a wide range of crimes
To help you prepare the strongest defense possible, we carefully review your charges, the events leading up to them, and the officers’ actions before and after your arrest. Any information obtained during our detailed review will be used to apply pressure on the prosecution to offer a favorable plea deal or drop your charges altogether. If a plea deal is not in your best interest, we’ll develop an aggressive trial defense to disprove your charges.
