Aggressive Defense when You Need it Most

We understand that criminal charges can be filed erroneously or that when culpability exists, no matter how slight, prosecutors are quick to over-charge. In our criminal defense practice, we pride ourselves on working hard to uncover the truth in every case, whether federal crimes, state crimes or courts martial in military proceedings, often succeeding in obtaining dismissals or reduced charges for our clients.

Whether you are facing murder or manslaughter or a simple traffic violation makes no difference in the effort we put forth to protect your rights. We are proficient in our defense of cases that involve assault and battery, domestic violence or sex crimes such as rape, and do all that we can to reduce the legal exposure of our clients in child pornography and internet sex crimes. At the same time, we are not afraid to take cases to trial, for instance, to fight charges of drug possession, drug manufacturing, and weapons offenses or drug trafficking. We have extensive experience in theft crimes, including white collar crimes, and have helped numerous clients retain their driver's licenses in their DUI/OUI cases. For clients who are interested in clearing their criminal records, we offer sealing and expungement actions, and also file criminal appeals for clients who have been wrongfully convicted or sentenced.
