Our Criminal Defense Practice

We handle the defense of a broad range of felony and misdemeanor criminal charges, including:

  • DUI/DWI. A conviction for drunk driving can have long term consequences. We will aggressively protect your rights, representing you in the hearing regarding the suspension or revocation of your license, as well as the criminal proceeding to determine penalties. We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your arrest to verify that there was probable cause to pull you over, and that field sobriety and blood alcohol tests were properly administered.
  • Drug charges. We handle the defense of criminal drug charges, including possession, sale, distribution, trafficking and manufacturing. We take cases involving all types of illegal substances, from marijuana, cocaine and heroin to prescription drugs.
  • Traffic violations. We protect the rights of people who have been charged with traffic offenses, including speeding tickets, reckless driving and driving on a suspended or revoked license.
  • Assault and battery.
