Criminal Defense

criminalIf you or someone you know has been charged with a serious offense or crime, do not take it lightly.  If convicted,  immediate consequences could include hefty fines, time in jail,  and imprisonment.  A criminal record can cause employment issues, loss of reputation in the community, loss of your right to bear arms, and negatively  impact the future for both you and your family.

Many people accused of crime are quick to accept plea bargains.  They do not exercise their right to a fair trial and waive many rights they are legally entitled by the U.S. Constitution. This can be a huge mistake.  As a citizen, you are entitled to be protected from unlawful detentions,  unlawful traffic stops, and unlawful searches and seizures by authorities. To determine whether a detention, stop, or search was unlawful, the facts and circumstances surrounding your arrest must be thoroughly investigated.

If the evidence against you was obtained through an unlawful method, there is an opportunity to have the evidence against you suppressed.  Additionally, if you provided statements to the authorities while not being properly read your Miranda rights, the statements may also be suppressed.   Once evidence is suppressed by a judge, the case against you weakens. Sometimes, the case will actually be dismissed because there is no evidence against you remaining.  Often, the success of a case rests on the speed of legal motions filed and subpoenas sought.

As a criminal defense attorney, it is my duty to look into every detail of your arrest, the evidence used against you, the surrounding circumstances of your case, and to use all means available to protect you and your best interests. If there is evidence against you that appears to be unlawfully obtained, I will file motions to suppress the evidence before the trial begins. If your case goes to trial, I will argue every fact and defense supporting your position, enlist qualified experts if necessary, and fight to protect you with all legal options available.

You are innocent until proven guilty and cannot afford to lose.  You deserve a criminal defense attorney who will personally fight for you. I will listen to you, work professionally for you, and argue the merits of the case on your behalf to the best of my ability.
