Skilled & Experienced Legal Representation

Our criminal defense attorneys aggressively seek fair judgments to keep our clients out of jail whenever possible or reduce the length of their sentences. We offer a full range of legal services for individuals accused in any type of criminal offense, as well as legal representation in criminal appeals and sealing or expungement cases. In federal crimes, state crimes or courts martial military proceedings involving murder or manslaughter, sex crimes such as rape, assault and battery, domestic violence and weapons offenses, the legal penalties can be extremely harsh and we recognize our obligation to our clients to protect their rights.

In drug possession, drug manufacturing and drug trafficking crimes cases, we examine all of the facts to dispute the flaws in the prosecution's case. If we can't get charges dismissed in these and DUI/OUI and traffic violations cases, we put great effort into negotiating lesser charges. Internet sex crimes, such as child pornography are common due to the pervasiveness of computers in today's society and convictions can ruin one's life. We do all that is possible in these cases as well as those involving theft crimes and white collar crimes to safeguard our clients' rights to the highest degree.
