Criminal Defense


Criminal charges can threaten foundational aspects of your life. Your liberties, freedom, and future may all hang in the balance. When so much is on the line, you deserve a strong criminal defense lawyer.

Criminal law involves prosecution by the government for an act deemed by local, state, or federal law to be a crime. More serious crimes, such as homicides, rapes, and assaults, are considered felonies and are punishable by more than one year in jail. Less serious crimes, including petty theft, are misdemeanors. A finding of guilt by a judge or jury can result in prison or jail time, fines, restitution, and/or probation.
