We know how the criminal justice system works, the judges and prosecutors involved, and can greatly assist you in defending your case.


How it Works

An aggressive defense of your case typically starts early in the proceedings including pre-charging conferences and bail hearings. After charges are filed, we examine the facts of the case and oftentimes file pretrial motions challenging such things as:

  • an unlawful arrest
  • an unlawful search
  • an improperly obtained confession
  • or otherwise confront weaknesses in the prosecution’s case

These motions are typically resolved prior to trial and, if successful, may result in the dismissal of charges.

Jury Trial Process

In the event that pretrial motions or a successful plea bargain does not successfully result in the resolution of the case our attorneys are always prepared to aggressively pursue the defense of our clients at jury trial.  We have litigated dozens of charges through the jury trial process including:

  • Acquittals of such charges as attempted homicide
  • Sexual assault
  • Drug distribution
  • Battery to law enforcement
  • Recklessly endangering safety
  • Battery
  • Disorderly Conduct
  • Rape

  • Child Pornography

  • Wreckless endangerment 
  • Felony possession
  • Concealed and Carrying while intoxicated
  • Weapons
