Criminal Defense


Securing legal assistance immediately following an arrest, criminal charge, or indictment is vital and can alter the course and outcome of your case.  It is important to be able to assess your options and find an attorney with the knowledge, experience, and skills necessary to successful advocate on your behalf.  A criminal law attorney should be knowledgeable and up-to-date with any changes in the law, experienced in the particular offense for which you have been charged, and skilled in the arts of negotiation and litigation.
