Let Our Attorneys Defend Your Rights

If you’ve been charged with a crime, then you may need a criminal attorney to defend your rights in court. That’s where our services come in.

Criminal law is a system of the law dedicated to the punishment of those who commit various crimes. We provide services to help defend these rights to lessen the punishment or defend those who believe they are not guilty of the crimes in which they’ve been accused. There are several different classifications of crimes that we represent – all of which are listed below.

  • Felonies
  • Misdemeanors
  • Federal crimes
  • DWI
  • Traffic violations
Felonies tend to be the most serious types of crimes and can be punishable by more than a year in state prison. Examples include murder, rape, burglary, and the sale of illegal drugs. State and federal statutes may consider other types of crimes felonies as well.
Usually less severe, misdemeanors can still be punishable up to a year in county jail. Some misdemeanors can be elevated to felony status depending on various factors involved with the crime. Common misdemeanors include drunk driving, shoplifting, assault, and possession of an unregistered firearm.
Federal Crimes
Typically, federal crimes are acts that are made criminal or illegal by federal law and are prosecuted in federal courts. The Federal government has jurisdiction of any crime committed on federal land or involved federal officers, any crime where a defendant crosses state lines, and immigration/customs violations.
DWI is an acronym for “Driving While under the Influence.” This type of crime can lead to automatic suspension or revocation of your driver’s license, a fine, or time in jail if you’ve been pulled over for driving under the influence of alcohol. Depending on the state law, a driver being charged with a serious offense that risked the health and safety of him/herself or others can be referred to as a DWI or a DUI.
Traffic Violations
Traffic violations include such acts as speeding or running a traffic light or stop sign. These are usually punishable by a fine and points on your record. The majority of traffic tickets are issues “strict-liability” which means that no particular criminal intent is required to convict the person of the offense.
