If you choose to work with my firm, then I can provide you with legal representation and defense in any of the following:
- Drug Crimes:
There are many various offenses that you could be charged with which involve illegal and controlled substances. Possession, cultivation, distribution, sales, trafficking, and many other offenses could warrant serious penalties for a conviction.
If you are charged with the crime of possession, then you could face a range of penalties from moderate to severe depending on the amount and the schedule of substance that was found in your possession at the time of your arrest.
- Driving Under The Influence:
If you are pulled over and your blood alcohol content is found to be at or above the legal limit of 0.08%, then you will be arrested and charged with drinking and driving. You could face jail time, fines, license suspension and other penalties for a DUI conviction.
- Juvenile Crimes:
Individuals under the age of 18 who are charged with a crime are typically prosecuted in the juvenile justice system. There are some serious cases, however, in which the crime is so severe that the minor is tried in adult court.
- Probation Violations:
If you are granted a probation sentence, then you will be given certain terms to comply with upon your release. Failure to comply with any of these terms is known as a probation violation and can result in serious penalties.
- Sex Crimes:
There are many different kinds of sex crimes you could be charged with, and some of the most severe penalties are reserved for those who are convicted of these crimes. In addition, there is a daunting social stigma that comes with a sex crime charge.

Whether petty theft, grand theft, shoplifting, robber, or another theft crime, it is crucial that you understand the severity of your criminal charge. You could be facing jail time, so you need a lawyer to aggressively defend you in court.

There are many laws governing traffic behavior, speed, and other elements of driving. A violation of these laws can result in a citation or a ticket. It is important to know that you have the option to fight the ticket if you wish.
