Cases We Handle From Police Investigation to Appeal

For years, our clients have trusted us to handle state and federal criminal investigations and charges, such as the following: 

  • Violent crimes. From charges ranging from assault to rape to homicide, we are confident in our ability to challenge the prosecution’s evidence and assert your rights in court.
  • Murder. When facing this most serious felony, we bring valuable experience and legal skill to your defense.
  • Sex crimes. These charges carry a heavy social stigma and harsh penalties. Our firm will take every legal avenue to attack the case against you with a thorough and dedicated defense.
  • Drug crimes. Being charged with the possession, distribution, or manufacture of controlled substances is serious. We defend all drug charges and search for mitigating factors that can lessen or prevent their consequences.
  • Federal crimes. These are among the most serious group of crimes due to the thorough and aggressive stance taken by federal prosecutors and law enforcement. We will fight equally as forcefully for the pursuit of your best interests in federal court.
  • Financial crimes. Whether you have been arrested for identity theft, fraud, or some other financial crime, we will mount a strong defense on your behalf.
  • DUI/DWI. We examine all aspects of your case, including the circumstances surrounding your arrest, in order to pursue a favorable outcome.
  • Gun and weapon crimes. We defend against the possession or sale of firearms by developing strategies aimed at achieving reductions or dismissals of charges.
  • Appellate advocacy. If you are looking to appeal or defend a court ruling, we provide appellate representation by crafting compelling oral arguments before state and federal courts.
