Criminal Law

Anyone accused of a crime faces a potentially devastating and life-altering experience. You should ensure your rights are protected by hiring a qualified criminal attorney. The American system of justice strives to protect the innocent, while it prosecutes and punishes the guilty. Our nation’s history is rife, however, with instances of wrongful prosecutions, convictions and punishments. Further, under our system of justice, even the guilty are entitled to a fair trial to ensure that the government always meets it burden of proof before punishing any of its citizens. A criminal defense lawyer will represent you to ensure you receive a fair trial.

 Criminal prosecutions can run the entire gamut, from business or “white collar” crimes such as anti-trust violations, to driving while under the influence violations. Regardless of the crime of which the defendant is accused, he or she will need caring, competent, motivated counsel and representation – one who is well-versed in criminal law.
