Areas of Focus in Criminal Defense

We focus on a variety of criminal defense charges so that you and your loved ones can start to feel a sense of stability and comfort again. These charges may include:

  • Theft
  • Disorderly conduct/public drunkenness
  • Underage drinking
  • Drug offenses/drug possession
  • Vandalism

The justice system is complex and powerful. Just because you are innocent until proven guilty doesn’t mean that the deck isn’t stacked against someone accused of these crimes and others. Fair and just treatment for criminal defendants is our passion; we’re here to help clear a path for you to receive fair and just treatment under the law.
