Criminal Law

Being accused or charged with a criminal offense can be one of the most devastating times in your life. This is especially true when you know you are not guilty but don't know enough of legal procedure to do anything about it.

It gets even worse when the lawyer you choose is not specialized in criminal law. Your result could be that your innocence will not be proven in a court of law. To avoid this, hire me as your experienced criminal lawyer to represent your case. I have extensive knowledge of handling criminal law cases with a high percentage of success rate.

The following are the benefits of hiring me as your lawyer:

You will get a thorough investigation of your case: I can unfold evidence a police officer may have missed during the investigation by conducting my own investigation of your case. This evidence could prove that you are innocent of the crime that you have been accused of. I will use various resources to put together evidence that will help defend you.

Reduction in jail time or punishment: It is best to hire me as your criminal lawyer as soon as you have been accused of a crime. I will build a strong case for you by arranging evidence, in hopes of lessening your punishment if you are found guilty. As a reputable attorney I am familiar with some of the prosecutors and court officials in your jurisdiction and have a good reputation in court. I will always work to negotiate deals on your behalf.

Relieves your Stress: Even though you may be knowledgeable of some aspects of the law, if you have been charged with a crime, it is important to hire me as your lawyer instead of representing yourself. Hiring me as your lawyer will be a vital component in defending your rights. You can have the peace of mind knowing you have hired the best person to represent you during one of the toughest times of your life.

It is always best to hire me as your lawyer during the early stage of your legal problems. As your criminal lawyer I will work with you during pre-trial to try to help you avoid being arrested or even having charges filed against you.

This is a critical phase in your legal issues and securing the help of a lawyer will help to maximize your options.
