Our goal at all times is to minimize the negative impact these charges have on you. We are practitioners, literally, of hundreds of different criminal defenses, and we will strategize with you to mount the defense that will be most successful for you. We may have charges dismissed or reduced. We may defend you on the quality of evidence or the propriety of the arrest and search. We may negotiate lesser charges with the prosecution. In cases of conviction, we search for penalties that do not involve jail or prison time. These may include diversion programs, education and drug and alcohol treatment programs, and other alternative arrangements.

In addition to defending against criminal charges, we provide vital legal services, including:

  • Administrative hearings
