Criminal Defense

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers

Being arrested and charged with a crime can be one of life’s most stressful experiences. Choosing a criminal defense lawyer to defend you may be one of the most important decisions you ever make. Life is difficult enough without adding a criminal record, hefty fine, or jail term to the equation. Often the odds of victory or defeat are predetermined by the defendant’s choice of counsel. Our criminal defense lawyers have handled thousands of criminal cases and have extensive litigation and trial experience. Our lawyers handle a wide range of criminal matters including: driving while intoxicated, assault, arson, burglary, conspiracy, disorderly conduct, drug possession, drug trafficking, forgery, fraud, larceny, money laundering, robbery, weapons offenses, and welfare fraud.

If you or a family member have been arrested, or believe you may be charged, with a criminal offense, you need to secure an effective criminal defense lawyer without delay.
