  • Traffic Violation Criminal Defense
    When you see the red and blue lights of a police car following you, a feeling a dread consumes your entire body. For many people being pulled over is the only time they have ever had a negative encounter with a police officer. Your driving record and your rights are our number one priority.

    • Driving Without a License
    • Driving Without License and/or Registration
    • DUI/DWI
    • Hit and Run
    • Reckless Driving
    • Speeding
    Receiving a ticket can mean heavy fines, loss of driver's license, an increase in insurance rates and even jail time. Depending on the severity of your crime, you will need a misdemeanor or felony law firm that is proficient in reviewing charges, statutes and applications of criminal law.

  • White Collar Criminal Defense
    Being charged with a white collar crime can be damaging to your reputation at work. Your job will most likely be in jeopardy, which can lead to financial hardship. We have a proactive method of defending workers who have been accused of:

  • Drug Crime Criminal Defense
    Losing your driver's license as well as your freedom are heavy consequences one will be facing if charged with a drug crime. Across the country, law enforcement has been cracking down heavy on drug and narcotic laws. Distribution, trafficking, possession, or cultivation charges can be tricky and many times the charge depends on collective variables:

    • Drug Use & Possession
    • Quantity of Drugs
    • Area of the Arrest
    • Intent to Sell Drugs
    Based on the specifics of the arrest, you are at risk of being charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. Take a proactive approach to knowing all of your rights.

    • Child Pornography
    • Date Rape
    • Incest
    • Rape and Sexual Assault
