We are proud of our reputation for devising individualized criminal defense strategies for every case we handle — strategies that have proven successful for dozens of our clients accused of committing felony and misdemeanor charges, including:
- DUI/DWI: This is a serious charge. Typically, the best way to defend against it is to discover procedural errors in your arrest or mishandling of evidence. Even if a conviction seems likely, we know ways to moderate harsh penalties.
- Drug charges: If you are being investigated or have been arrested for possessing, manufacturing, or distributing a controlled substance, we will work hard to protect your constitutional rights.

- Theft, burglary and shoplifting: Our firm has extensive experience defending against theft, burglary and shoplifting. We will review the evidence obtained against you to determine if the crime you allegedly committed fits the charges against you.
- Unlawful use of a weapon: We offer an aggressive defense strategy for individuals facing weapon charges. Often, weapon charges are pursued in addition to drug charges and other allegations to increase the penalties. We will fight for a dismissal if the charges do not fit the crime you allegedly committed.
- Stealing and tampering with motor vehicles: We will act quickly to defend your constitutional rights. Our defense attorneys are highly skilled at conducting thorough investigations to determine if any procedural errors or violations of your constitutional rights were made.
